Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

Has anyone gotten a 3.23 MySQL upgraded to 4.1? I have had all kinds of issues. I think I am getting close, but it has been painful and I really didn't understand whether or not I was supposed to uninstall 3.23 first or just blast in 4.1?
I've sucessfully gone from 3.23 upto 4.0 without any problems. I just did the usual build process then ran the mysql_fix_privilege_tables script in the 'scripts' directory of the source. The install docs have a pretty good explination of the upgrade process.
When you say all the products exactly what do you mean? Everything within the MySQL suite will get recompiled when you do the usual build processes (like my mysql command, and mysqladmin etc). Thing that act as clients, say an admin tool (like MyCC) and PHP scripts that talk to the database should still work fine.
When I tried to upgrade to 4.x, it had about 10 dependencies of things that depend on 3.23. When I read the MySQL install guide, it said that they changed the libmysql.so and that I would have to recompile/build anything that previously depended on 3.23 to make sure it was using the new header for libmysql. Does that make sense? Thanks
I can see what you mean from reading http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/Upgrading-from-3.23.html but it also says "Old clients should work with a Version 4.0 server without any problems" and all of my stuff it working fine. I'd be tempted to take a backup of you mysql directory and just give it a go! You can always roll back it it all goes Pear-Shaped...
The one thing I can't get installed is the *shared*.rpm file. It keeps telling me it needs libssl.so.0.9.6 which I have, but apparently I have just the file and it wants an RPM that matches I guess. If I try to install that, it wants libssl and libcrypto files. If I do a force since I have the files in /usr/lib, it Segmentation Faults everytime. Are you running 4.0 or 4.1? I was trying 4.1 so that I could use the subquery functionality. Also, have you been able to get the Control Center GUI to work? I got it running, but every few clicks, it shutsdown with no warning or errors. Just gone. Fun! :-) Thanks

I've only ever used MyCC under Windows, although I started a source build on my box at home but needed up update QT and a bundle of other libraries, which I still haven't got around to finishing.
