Sounds great. Again, as I wrote in my last post, I don't know *exactly* what command needs to be entered!! I have tried this in the /etc/rc.conf file:

setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /usr/local/lib/mysql/
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib/mysql/"

none of which work. I have tried creating a script and chmod +x in the /usr/local/etc/rc.d folder:

setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /usr/local/lib/mysql/

and that doesn't work, either. Would it be okay if I asked anyone out there to tell me *exactly* what I need to do to get this to be set on startup??
