I can't imagine a better "software support" then the one I experienced
with R.

Setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH did the magic. It would have never occurred to me
since this wasn't necessary for the 1.2.1 version.

to my understanding it did :

root at ufobig:/home/jniesch/R_HOME/lib/R/library/RMySQL/libs > ldd RMySQL.so 
        libmysqlclient.so.10 => /usr/local/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.so.10
        libz.so.1 => /lib/libz.so.1 (0x40035000)

...whatever, I set LD_LIBRARY_PATH in my .profile and everything works
Thanks again,
