I believe I understand the problem that I'm running into and I will explain step-by-step what I'm doing.
First, I unzip the tar file in the home directory:
tar -zxf mysql-5.1.38.tar.gz
Next, I use ./configure using the following options:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql \ --localstatedir=/usr/local/mysql/data \ --with-mysqld-user=mysql \ --without-debug
Then, I get to using automake:
After this step is where I get the error.
automake: no Automake input file found for `install'
automake: no input file found among supplied arguments
I've figured out what it's doing which is it's looking for the INSTALL file, but I'm confused as to why MySQL doesn't have this with it. Do I have to download it, is it made once I use ./configure, or what?
I'm trying to install eAthena and I'm following this guide: http://paradox924x.com/shazeya/Shazz...all-mysql.html
I understand that the mysql used here is old, but I doubt installation will be much different.
e: I've used apt-get to install mysql, but it conflicts with the tutorial I'm using. So... I'm not sure where to go from there.
