I've already asked here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6659030/udf-regular-expreissions-for-maria-db
I've found this really good user defined functions ( http://www.mysqludf.org/lib_mysqludf_preg/index.php ) for using regular expressions in mysql However when trying to instal I get can't find mysql library
====== OUTPUT ===== checking for mysqlbin... dirname: missing operand Try `dirname --help' for more information. checking for mysql_config... no no configure: error: "Can't find mysql library" ====================
The site says
>>If mysql is an unusual place, you might need to add --with-mysql=<mysql directory>/bin/mysql_config
I can't find mysql_config, searching for mysql shows these directories
/var/log/mysql /var/lib/mysql /var/lib/mysql/mysql /usr/share/mysql /usr/lib/mysql /etc/mysql/
I am using ubuntu lucid lynx, any sugestions would be greatly appreciated, thank

Answered on stackoverflow. You need libmysqlclient-dev (libmariadbclient-dev) package for mysql_config and required header files.
