    Install Mysql In DSL (Damn Small Linux)


    hi a newbie here..

    i manage somehow to install monkey (which comes together) and manage to attach PHP to monkey webserver.

    But now i am facing problems with mysql.
    can some one help me on this. my problems is

    1) DSL repository provides me a file called mysql.unc (how am i suppose to
    install with this extension?)

    2) Since i didnt know so i use from mysql.com (mysql-i686-Linux.tar.gz)
    version (x86) tho in my DSL its written i586 ( I hope its not really a
    problem, coz i cant find any with i586 ).

    3) The tar.gz version i manage to install as normal, sudo tar zxvf ..bla bla bla
    except it goes to my /tmp/mydsl/ folder i dunno why is tat the default
    location for mysql?..Anyway, the point is if say tat was true it is the
    correect way i have installed it .. how to it get mysql working?..

    4) Truely telling i am a real newbie, probably u guys would hate me for saying
    this but anyway because now i am widen my knowledge to Linux/Unix
    based PC wanna get out of windows. Till now been working with windows.
    Therefore i really hope to get step by step guide if as ppl say linux
    community is helpful. i would sincerely be happy.

    Thanks alot.

    That i686 problem you're talking about should be no big deal, i686 is I believe a collection of i386, i486....i686. As to your problem, it's not really clear to me, didn't the mysql package came with some kind of INSTALL or README file...if so you could post it here and maybe it's easier for us to help you out.

    If I may suggest an alternative for turning your computer into a webserver...
    Try lampp, it turns your computer into a webserver when you simply run the command:
    "/opt/lampp start"
    from a console, it what I always you use...

    and abt lampp yea i will gif tat a try which would be a better option for me now.

    but still i would like to learn on individual packages installation.
    agreed tat being a newbie i am jumping too far before knowing anything, but for me its easier to study the hard wans first .. coz then the simple wans make sense faster.

    The errors could mean there are some dependencies missing, you should make sure you have every package that is need...look for dependencies somewhere in the documentation.
