MySQL and Asterisk

I’m running asterisk 1.2 on Ubuntu, and I’m trying to use MySQL for various things in the dial plan, but when I install the asterisk addons, it fails to start asterisk. Im thinking that I’m doing something wrong with installing MySQL (apt-get install mysql-server). I thought I needed mysql-dev, but i read that i could replace this with libmysqlclient14-dev. I tried installing that and it still wont run. Anyone have any ideas/suggestions for getting mysql and asterisk to work?

it fails to start asterisk,

Give more details about the error you are getting

in case anyone else has this problem ever, when you install mysql-server, you need to install libmysqlclient14-dev before trying to make asterisk addons. If you do it before installing this mysql package it wont make right
