mydumper Compression Issue


My understanding is that Percona are now maintaining the mydumper project, so I hope it is OK to ask a mydumper question here. I am running CentOS 6.8 and I have compiled mydumper from source. But when I try to use on the fly compression (the -c flag) I see the error:

/usr/local/bin/mydumper: relocation error: /usr/local/bin/mydumper: symbol gzopen, version libmysqlclient_16 not defined in file with link time reference

I have installed version 0.9.2 of mydumper, but in running the command to check this, I see:

mydumper 0.9.2, built against MySQL 5.1.73

But I have Percona 5.6 installed… so is this the issue? mydumper works fine without compression, but that is a very nice feature to have. So does anyone know how to resolve this?

Thanks in advance,
