I posted a thread in this forum concerning mysql. this is my situation: Mysql was installed from binary source on a Fedora core 3 and I tried to configure nagios-plugin to be able to monitor database server but I got the following error:
checking for mysql_init in -lmysqlclient... yes
checking for mysql_close in -lmysqlclient... yes
checking mysql/mysql.h usability... no
checking mysql/mysql.h presence... no
checking for mysql/mysql.h... no
checking mysql/errmsg.h usability... no
checking mysql/errmsg.h presence... no
checking for mysql/errmsg.h... no
configure: WARNING: Skipping mysql plugin
configure: WARNING: install mysql client headers to compile this plugin (see REQUIREMENTS).
I checked the requirements and realised I have to install mysql-devel which is rpm.
my question is: is it possible to compile and install mysql-devel and mysql-client from binary and not from rpm.
thanks in advance
