Source vs Source RPM vs RPM
I'm still somewhat confused at times about all this stuff, running FC, I can work with RPM's
In my case I'm upgrading a MySQL 4.1.11 to 4.1.12
But regardless of that I want to understand some concepts behind this stuff.
If I grab soure to compile from I have to run all this make and configure stuff.
I should NOT have to do this on FC systems as I can grab a source RPM right?
Now about this source RPM, do I grab this from the package provider, in my case mysql or are source RPM's typically made available by FC themselves?
I certianly can't find em so I grab em from MySQL.
The RPM's which come out of this source RPM compiling going into:
are the RPM's which are typically made for DL as standard RPM's?
Just trying to get my logic straight.
