Configuration error:
  could not find the MySQL installation include and/or library   directories. Manually specify the location of the MySQL   libraries and the header files and re-run R CMD INSTALL.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Define and export the 2 shell variables PKG_CPPFLAGS and PKG_LIBS to include the directory for header files (*.h) and libraries, for example (using Bourne shell syntax):
      export PKG_CPPFLAGS="-I"
      export PKG_LIBS="-L -lmysqlclient"

   Re-run the R INSTALL command:

      R CMD INSTALL RMySQL_.tar.gz

2. Alternatively, you may pass the configure arguments

--with-mysql-dir= (distribution directory)
   or

--with-mysql-inc= (where MySQL header files reside)
--with-mysql-lib= (where MySQL libraries reside)
   in the call to R INSTALL --configure-args='...'

   R CMD INSTALL --configure-args='--with-mysql-dir=DIR' RMySQL_.tar.gz

ERROR: configuration failed for package ‘RMySQL’ * removing ‘/root/R/i686-pc-linux-gnu-library/2.12/RMySQL’

Any ideas how to proceed from here? I am quite a newbie in LINUX How do I find the mysql.h ?
using find / -name mysql.h but nothing there? Did I use it right?

Any other ideas? How do I set this right?

Thank you
