Ok, first off all I'm a real n00b when it comes to Linux....
When I'm trying to install mysql (mysql-standard-4.0.14-pc-linux-i686) on my pc I'm getting an error:
First I explain what I did:
1. downloaded the files
2. 'unpacked' them with tar tar -xzf mysql-standard-4.0.14-pc-linux-i686.tar.gz
3. run the configure ./configure
After this I get an error! First off all I get a lot of Information after that this: Starting the mysqld server. You can test that it is up and running
with the command:
030827 22:30:05 mysqld ended
Then it stops..... What to do?!
P.S. did it install something right now or did it just unpack it?
I'd check out the installation instructions first though before I went any further either on the mysql site or if there's any readme, INSTALL files in the directory you unpacked it to
./configure set's up the environment and does some checks and you can normally pass option to it like ./configure --with-innodb and stuff like that. If it gave you an error though just doing ./configure you'll have to address the error it's telling you about.
