    Installing MySQL from a Tarball

    I download mysql-standard-4.1.14-pc-linux-gnu-i686-icc-glibc23.tar.gz
    untar it: tar -zxf mysql-standard-4.1.14-pc-linux-gnu-i686-icc-glibc23.tar.gz
    change directory to mysql-standard-4.1.14-pc-linux-gnu-i686-icc-glibc23.

    When I tried to run ./configure and get this error:
    NOTE: This is a MySQL binary distribution. It's ready to run, you don't
    need to configure it!
    To help you a bit, I am now going to create the needed MySQL databases
    and start the MySQL server for you.  If you run into any trouble, please
    consult the MySQL manual, that you can find in the Docs directory.
    Installing all prepared tables
    ./bin/mysqld: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    Installation of system tables failed!
    Examine the logs in ./data for more information.
    You can also try to start the mysqld daemon with:
    ./bin/mysqld --skip-grant &
    You can use the command line tool
    ./bin/mysql to connect to the mysql
    database and look at the grant tables:
    shell> ./bin/mysql -u root mysql
    mysql> show tables
    Try 'mysqld --help' if you have problems with paths. Using --log
    gives you a log in ./data that may be helpful.
    The latest information about MySQL is available on the web at
    Please consult the MySQL manual section: 'Problems running mysql_install_db',
    and the manual section that describes problems on your OS.
    Another information source is the MySQL email archive.
    Please check all of the above before mailing us!
    And if you do mail us, you MUST use the ./bin/mysqlbug script!
    Did I really screw up?

    Where do I get a non-binary tarball?

    I'm a complete idiot! If I had just read a little more I would have realized just how simple the install is.

    I apologise for wasting everyone time.
