MySQL-4.1.12-0.sles9.src.rpmfrom mysql.com in the hope of getting Wordpress running on our server. I can't seem to install the darn thing. So I dl'ed
mysql-standard-4.1.12-unknown-linux-gnu-powerpc-glibc23.tar.gzand tried to use the binaries instead.
Viola! MySQL4.1.12 managed to run fine. The only problem is that even with all the usual accounts set up, including privileges and access rights to hosts set up correctly, wordpress can't connect to the localhost database. Baaaaad!!! I ended up setting up the database on my trusty workstation and connected to that instead.
