What version omf MySQL and how was it installed and any warnings created?

The error shows that a MySQL utility (my_print_defaults) cannot find a shared library, so my guess is that something has gone wrong during the install process.

I downloaded mysql 5.0 Solaris version from here
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/5.0.html

Installed per instructions here
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/solaris-installation.html

One possiblity is maybe the server already had a prior instance of mysql installed.

How can I uninstall it on solaris and start the process from fresh?

Thanks!

libm.so is the standard floating-point library (with sin(), cos(), ceil(), etc).  It's a standard library, you definitely ought to have it.  You probably have the wrong version.

I think you downoaded a binary build of mysql for the wrong version of solaris.  Look for libraries like 'libm.*' in /lib and /usr/lib.

ldd is a useful utility to find problems with shared-library dependencies.  Run:
ldd /usr/bin/my_print_defaults
