Can't load MySQL Library
I installed MariaDB 5.2 in ubuntu 11.4, all was normal. However when I run the application, the following error appears: Can't load mysql library. library "libmysqlclient.so.16", "libmysqlclient.so.15", "libmysqlclient.so". What went wrong and how can I fix it?

I assume you installed MariaDB using the instructions on the
Installing MariaDB .deb Files page? Which package did you install?
It's hard to say without seeing the actual error message, but my guess is that
you have an old libmysqlclient16 package lying around somewhere. You might be
able to fix that by installing (or reinstalling) the
libmariadbclient16 packages from the MariaDB repositories. Something like
this would do the trick:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libmysqlclient16 libmariadbclient16
