Hi all,

>From a goggle search, it appears this problem is not unknown, and may be
due to compiler version differences (gcc 3.3 and 4.0).  But whatever
the cause, and despite the remedies I tried (mostly 'sudo gcc_select 3.3') I could not get 
RMySQL to load.  Here's the error message:

  > library (RMySQL)
    Loading required package: DBI
    Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) :
          unable to load shared library '/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/library/RMySQL/libs/RMySQL.so':
    dlopen(/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/library/RMySQL/libs/RMySQL.so, 6): Symbol not found: _fprintf$LDBLStub
    Referenced from: /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/library/RMySQL/libs/RMySQL.so
    Expected in: flat namespace
    Error in library(RMySQL) : .First.lib failed for 'RMySQL'

This is using:

        Mac OS 10.4.3 
     R version 2.1.1.  
         mysql 5.0.1
           DBI 0.1-9
        RMySQL 0.5-5

Any suggestions?
