Zabbix install not working.


I'm trying to install Zabbix (1.6) and i'm currently getting an error when running "./configure --enable-server --with-mysql --with-net-snmp --with-libcurl".

The error is:

"checking for getopt_long... yes
checking for mysql_config... /usr/bin/mysql_config
checking for main in -lmysqlclient ... no
configure: error: Not found mysqlclient library"

I have mysql-server installed.

Could anyone help?

I'm running CentOS 5.4  x86_64

Try this,

./configure  --with-mysql --libdir=/usr/lib64 --with-libdir=lib64 and other options

I ran:

./configure  --with-mysql --libdir=/usr/lib64 --with-libdir=lib64 --enable-server --with-net-snmp

and got the same error.


Take a look at this link for installing Zabbix. It is pretty straight forward,

Good luck!
