how to install MySQL on linux

Getting error message when I try to install MySQL-max-4.0.12-pc-linux-i686.tar.gz to the /usr/local. I installed it in /var/lib/mysql and now when I reboot it won't start automatically and when I type mysqld start it can't connect.

You could install it from the install cds easier using packages built for Redhat.

There is also apt4rpm and Red Carpet for easier than source code installs.

Well depends. If you want to chroot it I wouldn't go for the rpm, I'd go for the gzipped tar version ... I will be using that version on Debian also and then create a chroot-mysql-4.x debian package out of it :-)
