Description Curtis Doty 2000-11-12 19:01:02 EST
I found a missing dependency in mysql-3.23.27-3 whereby it needs glibc >= 
2.1.97-2 to run. I had glibc-2.1.92-5 and it let me install without 

(I don't understand, cause it *says* it requires libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2).)

The symptom for this defect was much uglier than the bug itself. I didn't 
look too closely, but safe_mysql went into spin cycle trying to start 
mysql. The whole time, nothing was put in /var/log.

But this newbie eventually killed it and found the clues in /var/lib/mysql/
[hostname].err which was being flooded with:
mysqld restarted
/usr/libexec/mysqld: error while loading shared 
libraries: /usr/libexec/mysqld: symbol __lxstat64, version GLIBC_2.2 not 
defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference

Thanks... I'll add that.

Added in 27-4, which some day should show up in Rawhide. Thanks for the report.
