MySQL : wrong driver version
I'm using Qt5.6 OpenSource (I had the same problem with 5.5) on Debian Jessie.
I'd like to connect to a MySQL database.
The problem is that Qt is looking for libmysqlclient_16 but it's not the currently installed version (which is libmysqlclient_18). I tried to add symlinks from 18 to 16 (didn't work).
I read that I need to rebuild the plugin to make it use the newest driver (here). Sounds good, but I can't find a $QTDIR/src/plugins/ directory. I have a $QTDIR/Src/ but no "plugins" inside it.
I'm new to using Qt, so I'm a bit lost. Any insight would be appreciated.
Thank you !
