    Hi guys...

    I'm facing a big problem in upgrading Mysql 3.22.32 to 3.23.37 specifically in step number 4 ( make )

    I tryed so many times but no luck at all.

    My dedicated server specification:
    - Red hat 6.2
    - Dual Pentium III 500
    - 1 GB RAM

    I went to mysql.com and download this version (is it correct)

    Linux (Intel libc6 systems) [pc-linux-gnu-i686]

    1- I unzipped it.
    2- cd .. version
    3- ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql
    4- make

    here i'm getting a message in telnet saying no target ???

    Note that I have a working mysql-3.22.32 in /usr/local/

    I don't know how to upgrade this ....

    Hi, blah, I'm not going to be very useful to you. But, firstly, are you logged in as root? And second, is there a reason why you have to compile from source? Because I'm a hopeless linix admin, I would use RPMs.

    Like I said - my very limited knowledge of Linux makes me a pathetic sys admin. But I have generally found that installing from RPMs is much easier. Here are the install instructions. (you can download the RPMs from ww.mysql.com) http://www.mysql.com/doc/L/i/Linux-RPM.html

    Having said all that it appears that some people have had problems even with the RPMs from the user comments. Good luck. Wish I could be more help.

    Remember you can only install RPMs if your system has an RPM manager installed on it - I think Red Hat, Mandrake and SuSE all have support for RPMs but I don't know about the other distributions.
