Iâve just installed fedora 6.
In my free time Iâm trying to work on a project as much as possible. What I want too do is to connect to MySql from C.
Iâve read the MYSQL chapter from Beginning Linux Programming â 3rd edition
but it seams that I canât connect to the mysql from C because I do not have the âmysql.hâ library on my system.
The mysql shell utility is working just fin and the actual chapter form the book is not saying anything about what to do in this case.
connect1.c contains the code that Iâm trying to compile
int main (void)
The compile commands that the book say that shod work in most of the cases are:
$ gcc -I/usr/include/mysql connect1.c -L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient -lz -o connect1
$ gcc -I/usr/include/mysql connect1.c -lmysqlclient -o connect1
The problem is that it was impossible for me too find in my hole directory structure a file cooled mysql.h.
A big inconvenient is that Iâm using a dialup connection. The internal modem that I use is a winmodem so âNo Linux driversâ. All that I can do is just download from windows the files and then copy them too fedora.
Please do help me.
