I know it's weird. Philipp Gesang, from the "Dante" mailing list, who  
tried to help me some days ago, did not have the problem either:

   $ ls -la /usr/local/texlive/2009/bin/x86_64-linux/lib/lua/luasql/mysql.so
   lrwxrwxrwx 2 root root 37 2010-11-11 16:11  
/usr/local/texlive/2009/bin/x86_64-linux/lib/lua/luasql/mysql.so ->  

On my machine I am using  Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - Lucid Lynx. I did not install  
Texlive from the repository but manually using the Texlive 2009  
installation, which updated to 2010 meanwhile.

The error messages are the same on my laptop with Ubuntu Lucid and Texlive  
 from the Ubuntu repository (LuaTeX Version beta-0.50.0-2010010505). But

	$ kpsewhich --expand-var \$CLUAINPUTS

on the laptop returns

I did not find a place where to copy the mysql.so there because I don't  
understand where the Ubuntu installs the libs form Texlive.
