help with XAMPP, can't run this on RH 5.8


I need to MY SQL, since I don't know much about MYSQL. I thought it would be nice to install this package which has everything. But I can't get this to work. Does any one else if there any other simple MYSQL package out side which I can create tables and do simple things.

This is what I did so for...

just installed XAMPP 1.8. I installed this on Redhat 5.8 64 bit. When I start, I get this error message. Please advise.

./lampp start
XAMPP is currently only availably as 32 bit application. Please use a 32 bit compatibility library for your system.

Can you advise where do I download the 32 bit compatibility library ?

This IS RHEL5.8
so you DO have the REQUIRED support contract
and that gives you access to the red hat knowledge base
your first stop on solving something should be there
( you will have to login to red hat using the username and pass you set up when you bought the required license )

most likley there is a solution posted there

Can you advise where do I download the 32 bit compatibility library ?
HOW did you install "XAMPP"
yum should have pulled the needed things

you say you need "mySQL"
it IS ON THE VERY OLD red hat 5 install dvd
rhel5 came out in 07 so the version of MySQL on rhel5.8 is VERY OLD

is there a MUST USE NEED for using the old 5 series ??
if not
you would be better off installing the current RHEL6.3
