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.

I recently installed Redhat 9 for a little webserver project. I have been having problems, but have kept learning and fixing, until now. I opted not to install MySQL 3.23 from the Redhat installation cds, and get the newest version (4.0.17) and install that instead. I downloaded the rpm file and installed it, no problem. I downloaded the rpm file for PHP and installed it, no problem. But the two wouldn't work together. So I did some research and found that I needed php-mysql installed to use the two together. I tried rpmfind.net, and didn't find the right version, so I just installed it directly from the installation cds. This removed MySQL 4.0.17 and installed MySQL 3.23 and php-mysql. Now I can't remove MySQL 3.23 because of a dependency, perl-DBD-MySQL-2.1021-3 and I can't remove perl-DBD-MySQL-2.1021-3 because of the dependency to MySQL 3.23.
Can anyone help me with this problem? If so, can anyone also help me with getting PHP 4 and MySQL 4.0.17 working together? I am really close to just reinstalling Redhat 9 (it would be the third time) and trying from scratch. Should I get away from using rpm files and start ./configuring?
