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 'libmysqlclient.so.10 is needed by php-mysql-...'. I checked with 'locate libmysqlclient' and apparently I have libmysqlclient.so.12. I downloaded then newer php-mysql package versions, and they all ask for libmysqlclient.so.10, 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,
