Mysql Build/install Problems

Recommended Posts



I recently downloaded the mysql source for Linux. I downloaded it from packages.ubuntu.com (my version of linux is Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon).

here are my problems


Installing Mysql:

This is the command I use to configure:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql --with-named-curses-libs=/usr/lib/ncurses.a

(the --with-named-curses-libs=/usr/lib/ncurses.a is to fix a bug that occurs when installing on Ubuntu)

And this is the error I get:

Does anyone know how to fix this? I've looked it up, but I can't find the answer anywhere.

Oddly enough, I know how you feel.

I'm not sure if the install command is the same in Ubuntu but you should just need to install the missing package.

At the very least, try and guess the package name that you need to install.
Maybe something like this:

yum install man/Makefile

Wait until you try and do a PHP build, there are about 10 packages that you'll need to install.

Your problem with the MySQL installation is different then my PHP installation and I'm not very experienced with Linux but I hope this will put you on the right path.

When I try doing apt-get install man/Makefile it just says it can't find the packageBy the way, the computer isn't connected to the internet. i'm only using apache/php/mysql for development.
