    Hi,
    I am trying to install MySQL on linux machine ( Apache )
    I downloaded the software adn run these two commands

    % tar xfz mysql-version.tar.gz
    % cd mysql-version

    When I run the next command as

    % ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql

    It gives me some positive messages but at the end it has
    ******************
    [root@linux mysql-3.23-52-pc-linux-gnu-i686]# chown: mysql: invalid user

    Starting mysql daemon with database from /root/mysql- version / data

    020913 02:01:53 mysql ended

    *********************
    message.. and I have to use Control C to come out of it...

    Then I cann't run the make and make install commands after

    Can some one please help me with this..

    Thanks in advance

    I use RPM version and it's much easier to install, uninstall and upgrade.

    But there are 5 rpms for mysql, you need to install them all.
