Some developers wanted to have a slash site setup for some projects going on here. I'm not hugely familiar with linux, but usually I can get done what I need to, sometimes it just takes awhile. But danged if I can get past that rotten MySQL installation...I've compiled the source and I've tried to install the binary distribution...Never works. There are too many different errors to really provide here. I'm just wondering if anyone has tips/tricks for installing MySQL on Redhat 7.1 that I should know about? Is there some dumb thing I'm not doing? Clearly this is operator error, but I can't find crap about MySQL and Red Hat 7.1 installations. Doing exactly what the MySQL instructions tell me to do, is not getting me anwhere. Thanks for any help -- Matt"
