I had the same problem yesterday. And it has to do with Fedora 7. Some
ppl thought that it would be a good idea to supply two versions of the
mysql-client. Version 3 and 4.1.

Obviously, both versions need a different name, so they supplied
libmysqlclient14.so and libmysqlclient11.so. But not a 'default'

Adding a link should solve this. That it didn't work for you is most
probable because you made the link in /usr/lib/mysql. Place a link
in /usr/lib or run /sbin/ldconfig after you made the link.

btw: why do you still use programs which use mysql4? Maybe you'd better
use mysql41dyn.

My question now is: how do other programs on Fedora handle this? How do
they now which libmysqlclient.so to use? Does anybody know that?
