in reply to dyld: lazy symbol binding failed (was MAC OS 10.6 upgrade breaks DBD:mysql)

I'm not sure if it applies to everybody, but I had this problem because I use the MySQL packages provided by Fink, but had not upgraded Fink to Mac OS X 10.6.

As a result, all my Fink libraries, including mysqlclient.dylib are 32-bit only.

The /usr/bin/perl in Snow Leopard is 32-or-64 bit, but prefers 64 bit. By the time it's loaded, it's definitely 64 bit and all further (runtime) libraries linked in HAVE to be 64-bit.

My solution is twofold: firstly, upgrade Fink into 64-bit land by reinstalling from scratch, as per their instructions. Secondly, I've decided to use the official MySQL build rather than Fink's build.

That's the bottom-line, but here are some other useful tips:

  • otool -L will tell you what other libraries a bundle depends on.
  • file on an executable will tell you what architectures it's compiled for.
In this case:
$ otool -L blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.bundle blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.bundle: /sw/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.15.dylib (compatibility version 1 +6.0.0, current version 16.0.0) /usr/lib/libz.1.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current ve +rsion 1.2.3) /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, curre +nt version 124.1.1) $ file /sw/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.15.dylib /sw/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.15.dylib: Mach-O dynamically linked share +d library i386 $ file blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.bundle blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.bundle: Mach-O universal binary with 3 +architectures blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.bundle (for architecture x86_64): + Mach-O 64-bit bundle x86_64 blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.bundle (for architecture i386): Mach-O + bundle i386 blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.bundle (for architecture ppc7400): + Mach-O bundle ppc
