thanks for all the help. I would like to summarize:
If you want to use the same R scripts for accessing a mysql
database from Windows and Debian/GNU Linux, you can either
1. install the RMySQL source package from CRAN under debian, and compile it
under Windows as well (this sounds a little hairy to me)
2. install unixodbc, compile myODBC 2.50 from www.mysql.org,
and install RODBC from CRAN on debian, and install RODBC and myODBC under
Windows. This worked for me.
Option 2. also involved installing libmysqlclient10-dev and the source package
for mysql under debian.
