MySQL and PHP: incompatible libmysqlclient library


I'm a newbie with RH9. I have uninstalled MySQL 3.x and tried to install MySQL 4.0.15. It complained about dependencies, so I ended up removing complete MySQL installation (from RH9 default installation) and mysql-php package. Then I installed MySQL 4.0.15 successfully (or at least I think so).
Next thing, I tried to re-install mysql-php (4.2.2-17, this is the default version for RH9 I have), but now it complains that ' is needed by php-mysql-...'. I checked with 'locate libmysqlclient' and apparently I have I downloaded then newer php-mysql package versions, and they all ask for, plus they seem not to be compatible ('failed dependencies...') with my base php package version.

A solution or advice would be very appreciated!

Thanks in advance,

Get the older version that has the .10 lib that is required. You can possibly try linking the .12 to .10 but might not always work, etc.
