mediatomb configure problem

    ./configure    failes with:
    configure: Will search for mysql config in /usr/local/mysql/bin
    configure: You specified /usr/local/mysql/bin for mysql_config
    configure: error: /usr/local/mysql/bin not found

    however  "/usr/local/mysql/bin" does exist and mysql_config is a member of "usr/local/mysql/bin"

    here is an abbreviated list of the library:

    root@abitbox:~# ls -l /usr/local/mysql/bin

      Info I forgot to include:

      here is the config instruction:

      root@abitbox:/home/gary/mediatomb# ./configure --with-mysql-cfg=/usr/local/mysql/bin

      I believe the "configure" script is buggy

      2 Reason for that statement:
      With the error shown in my first post, adding the path to the PATH environment variable solved that problem;

      the configure parameter "--with-libdvdnav-cfg=/usr/bin/dvdnav-config" also caused the configure script to terminate early; with an error similar to error explained in my first post.  With this error, I added a symbolic link from
      "dvdnav_config" to "dvdnav-config". This prevented the script from terminating early, but did not correct the recognition that "libdvdnav" is installed.

      The version of mediatumb was retrieved from svn 11/11/2008

      I added a symbolic link to /usr/bin and the configure script completed successfully rather that terminating early.  However

      The parameter expect the absolute path and name of the mysql_config, not just a path to where it is located.

      I.e. --with-mysql-cfg=/some/place/bin/mysql_config while you only provided /some/place/bin

      Kind regards,

      Thankyou for the information , Jin

      But I still think there may be a bug in the configure script.
      following are some excerpts form the console showing the basis for my thinking that there may be a bug

      -------------here is the command I ran-----------------
      gary@abitbox:~/mediatomb$ ./configure --with-libdvdnav-cfg=/usr/bin/dvdnav-config

      ------------Here is the result, note that libdvdnav is listed as missing.

      sqlite3               : missing
      mysql                 : yes
      libjs                 : missing
      libmagic              : yes
      inotify               : yes
      libexif               : yes
      id3lib                : disabled
      taglib                : yes
      libmp4v2              : yes
      libdvdnav             : missing
      ffmpeg                : yes
      ffmpegthumbnailer     : missing
      external transcoding  : yes
      curl                  : yes
      YouTube               : yes
      Weborama              : disabled
      SopCast               : disabled
      libextractor          : disabled
      db-autocreate         : yes

      -------------------This shows that dvdnav-config exists------------
      gary@abitbox:~/mediatomb$ ls -l /usr/bin/dvdn*
      -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1404 2008-11-22 00:12 /usr/bin/dvdnav-config*

      ------------------Shows where libdvdnav is located-------------
      gary@abitbox:~/mediatomb$ whereis libdvdnav
      libdvdnav: /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

      -----------------here is the version information --------------- root@abitbox:/home/gary/mediatomb# ./configure -V
      MediaTomb configure 0.12.0
      generated by GNU Autoconf 2.61

      Again, Thank you for the assistance
