the package mysql provides the library, the latest version.
If the kodi package needs an older version you should rebuild the kodi package with mysql 5.7 (if supported) or use the mysql 5.6 package.

Something is wrong with the libmysqlclient package as it relating to kodi. If I use this AUR package as a substitute for [extra]/mariadb and try to run kodi, I get:

/usr/lib/kodi/kodi.bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The boost issue was fixed, thanks to Norvald H. Ryeng of MySQL.

This still doesn't work. Any workarounds?

Scindix commented on 2016-01-08 08:44

Having exactly the same problem...
I need libmysqlclient to install the root library (by CERN)
Is there a fast workaround that I can do to make it work? (Unfortunately I'm not really familiar with cmake, so I couldn't help myself on that one)
The only thing that I found is to open /usr/include/boost/version.hpp and change the version during installation. However that doesn't seem right even for a workaround. It compiles, but I'm not sure yet if it really works.
It would be really nice if you could submit a patch.
Update: okay it fails to compile.

/usr/include/boost/geometry/util/has_non_finite_coordinate.hpp:42:12: error: ‘has_coordinate_with_property’ is not a member of ‘boost::geometry::detail’
return detail::has_coordinate_with_property
/usr/include/boost/geometry/util/has_non_finite_coordinate.hpp:44:18: error: expected primary-expression before ‘,’ token
/usr/include/boost/geometry/util/has_non_finite_coordinate.hpp:45:34: error: expected primary-expression before ‘,’ token
/usr/include/boost/geometry/util/has_non_finite_coordinate.hpp:50:10: error: ‘::apply’ has not been declared

Seems that mysql really need that old version of boost.

Hi folks

It seems to me MySQL is quite strict on the version of boost. I failed installing with following error:

-- Found /usr/include/boost/version.hpp
CMake Warning at cmake/boost.cmake:256 (MESSAGE):
Boost minor version found is 60 we need 59
Call Stack (most recent call first):
CMakeLists.txt:435 (INCLUDE)

-- BOOST_INCLUDE_DIR /usr/include
-- Could not find (the correct version of) boost.
-- MySQL currently requires boost_1_59_0

CMake Error at cmake/boost.cmake:76 (MESSAGE):
You can download it with -DDOWNLOAD_BOOST=1 -DWITH_BOOST=<directory>

This CMake script will look for boost in <directory>. If it is not there,
it will download and unpack it (in that directory) for you.

If you are inside a firewall, you may need to use an http proxy:

export http_proxy=

CMakeLists.txt:435 (INCLUDE)

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
See also "/tmp/yaourt-tmp-tle/aur-mysql/src/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log".

As you can see above the version that MySQL asked for is minor 59, whilst I have 60. I am more than happy to submit a patch if no one's up for it.

Postfix won't start after the upgrade to mysql-5.7: "postfix: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

Muflone commented on 2015-11-01 23:46

Updated to version 5.7
version 5.6 users could move to the mysql56 package

wolftankk commented on 2015-09-28 16:09 cannot open shared object file

it need rebuilding ..

I had no problem downloading from that location, although another issue popped up: there is no GPG signature at, only at If you change the first line in the source array and add a validpgpkeys entry like


the tarball is checked for being genuine, too.
