Which MySQL install method?
I want to install MySQL on my Fedora 12 box but I'm not really sure what the best method to use is. I have had problems in the past with using yum, mainly the installed package was behind and/or missing pieces that I needed and it was a real pain to find and install those pieces. My problem is that I'm not totally convinced I should do an install from source, or even an rpm, as that would mean losing the yum safety net.
Yup, I really am that indecisive ;)
My intentions are to have a development account on my home machine to polish up my php and java skills so I'll be installing Apache, Php and Java on this machine as well.
So, does anyone out there have any words of wisdom for me? Any advice is appreciated.
