Hi Rob,

The QT-lib cannot load it's plugin to acces the MYSQL database, several 
things are possible:
- plugin is present but cannot be found
- plugin is not build

For building the plugin you need the MYSQL-devel headers, run ./configure 
for QT3 and recompile the library.
It is also possible to compile the plugins only, see link below.

If you only have QT3 binaries: I heard someone mention once you can 
download an RPM with only the plugins, perhaps you should download the 
archives of this list and grep for his post.

For more pointers and better instructions see:

Isaac: Is this something for the FAQ? Seems to come up repeatedly on the list.
