Installing mysql using binary on ubuntu 9


Hi,
I am trying to install mysql-5.0.96.tar.gz on my laptop(i5). I have found following commands from a website:
Quote:
To install and use a MySQL binary distribution, the basic command sequence looks like this:
shell> groupadd mysql
shell> useradd -r -g mysql mysql
shell> cd /usr/local
shell> tar zxvf /path/to/mysql-VERSION-OS.tar.gz
shell> ln -s full-path-to-mysql-VERSION-OS mysql
shell> cd mysql
shell> chown -R mysql .
shell> chgrp -R mysql .
shell> scripts/mysql_install_db --user=mysql
shell> chown -R root .
shell> chown -R mysql data
shell> bin/mysqld_safe --user=mysql &
# Next command is optional
shell> cp support-files/mysql.server /etc/init.d/mysql.server



I am getting following error:
Code:
groupadd: cannot lock /etc/group;  try again later.
If i type
Quote:
$whereis mysql
mysql: /etc/mysql
Somebody plz guide me.

Zulfi.

First off,
Support for 9.04 ended October 2010, while 9.10 ended April 2011
You do not get security updates.
I would strongly recommend you install a current version

http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop
note:
Quote:
Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS is a long-term support release. It has continuous hardware support improvements as well as guaranteed security and support updates until April 2017.
Now, if you still want to stick with what you have..
http://askubuntu.com/questions/48025...e-with-apt-get
will give you some pointers on updating your sources.list thus allowing you to install mysql packaged by Ubuntu

I assumed you are trying to install via mysql-VERSION-OS.tar.gz because apt-get 'fails'
if not and neither of the above are acceptable, .. humour me and explain why

Honestly, upgrade
you currently have very high security risks

Hi,
I dont have the internet. I dont know if these changes would be useful or not. I have tried to install ubuntu 12.04 but i have encountered several problems. I have posted these problems on this forum. I have to buy an external disk for this purpose.

Hi,

I am getting error in running make file:
Code:
make && make install
:
:

(Sorry i dont have the entire output
../depcomp: line 571: exec: g++: not found
make[2]: *** [my_new.o] Error 127
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/mysql-5.0.96/mysys'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/mysql-5.0.96'
make: *** [all] Error 2

and script
Code:
root@zulfiqar-laptop:/usr/local/mysql-5.0.96# ./scripts/mysql_install_db
FATAL ERROR: Could not find /usr/local/mysql/bin/my_print_defaults

If you are using a binary release, you must run this script from
within the directory the archive extracted into.  If you compiled
MySQL yourself you must run 'make install' first.



root@zulfiqar-laptop:/usr/local/mysql-5.0.96# cd
root@zulfiqar-laptop:~# ls
root@zulfiqar-laptop:~# cd mysql
bash: cd: mysql: No such file or directory
root@zulfiqar-laptop:~#
However the earlier command:
Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql --localstatedir=/usr/local/mysql/data --with-mysqld-user=mysql --with-unix-socket-path=/tmp/mysql.sock --with-charset=utf8
with the inclusion of curses worked fine. Somebody plz guide me.

I am following:
Code:

"apt-get update" isn't working because you don't have an internet connection (and because Karmic is end-of-life).
"make" is failing because you don't have gcc installed. You can easily install this (as part of the useful "build-essential" metapackage) on a supported Ubuntu release with an internet connection by using the following commands:

Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential

Hi,
my friend thanks for your response but you are reminding me of the famous problem. I tried several times on this forum to install ubuntu 12.04 but it failed. There must be some solution for this make file problem. I have found a link for this but I dont have yum on my system. So i am stuck.
Kindly guide me otherwise it would become another unsolved problem.
Zulfi.

I apologize that I am unable to Support an Unsupported release of Ubuntu.
There are dozens of distributions listed at http://www.distrowatch.com and I hope that you are able to find a currently-supported distro that supports your hardware. Good luck!

New Plan

After reviewing your other posts with regards to installing Ubuntu, I think you need some 'hands on' help.

do a web search for
LUG <your city> <your country>

LUG = Linux user group

Hopefully you will find one local to yourself,
You can then introduce yourself on their mailing list, and go along to a meeting taking your laptop. I'm sure they will be willing to help.

It will be like having a bunch of experts with you.. because you will have a bunch of experts with you

Hi,
Thanks for this interesting plan. Actually I dont find unix users so much in my area. Every body uses windows. I would use this plan as a last resort. First i would try to act on another advise given to me by one your forum experts i.e. installing ubuntu on an external h/d. If i get any problem i would post on this forum. If unsolved i would try your option. Thanks for your time.

Zulfi.
