Changing to MySQL 4.1

Slack 12 comes with MySQL 5, but I'm running a client which is not compatible with 5.x. What is the easiest way to get MySQL 4.1 to run instead? What are the steps of getting there?

I tried to compile a source version of 4.1 but ran into compile issues with glibc23. I think Slack 12 is using glibc22.

Well, I used pkgtool to remove 5.0 and then unpacked mysql-max-4.1.22-pc-linux-gnu-i686.tar.gz and ran the configure script.
It started and then died which turned out to be a permission issue.
Once the rights were set to mysql it came up fine.

Now I just need to see how to install the binaries to their proper locations, there probably is a script that does it.


mysql, slackware
