MySQL Environment Variable on Installation


This is probably a relatively simple problem to resolve, but I have no experience with BO

and it has me stumped.

I am trying to install Business Objects Server on a Redhat Server, and the BO installation script complains :

MySQL '' environment variable not set. This means either that a MySQL client is not installed on this computer, or that a MySQL client is installed on this computer but not set up for the current user.

Can anyone tell me what environment variable it's checking ? The MYSQL client is in my path.

Many thanks,
