I've read the page on MySql site and it's so confusing it's not really worth looking at. I've followed the instructions to the letter for both the mysql-3.22.32.tar.gz and for the 5 rpm files . I have tried to install this thing about 5 or 6 times and get a wonderful variety of error messages.

I have tried running configure and it runs OK and says:

creating config.h - ***this is the last line it writes***

Not doing what it should I gather!
Any suggestions would be helpful, I could do with removing it completely and starting again? Duno....
