Description Jonathan Smith 2003-07-22 20:59:23 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030718
Mozilla Firebird/0.6

Description of problem:
When doing a simple rpm -Uvh to MySQL 4.0, I get the following error:

libmysqlclient.so.10 is needed by (installed) mod_auth_mysql-20030510-3
libmysqlclient.so.10 is needed by (installed) perl-DBD-MySQL-2.9002-1
libmysqlclient.so.10 is needed by (installed) php-mysql-4.3.2-6

I'd like to be able to use 4.0's new features, and it's much easier to use RPM's
than to build from source.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download MySQL-server from mysql.com and do a rpm -Uvh

Actual Results:  Got error shown above

Expected Results:  successful upgrade

At the moment, Red Hat does not support MySQL 4.0.x due to licensing

We did have MySQL 4.0 rpms available on Rawhide for a little while (before the
license problem was discovered).  Along with the MySQL 4.0 rpms, we had a 
mysqlclient10 rpm which contained the libmysqlclient.so.10 file (which is what
you need).

The MySQL folks are looking into the licensing issue and we'll roll the rpms
once the issue is taken care of.

Any news about this, maybe adding the mysql-4.x to fedora, since 
fedora is a really gpl project, I read the mysql license and I don't 
think should be any problems to add mysql 4 to Fedora Core, but in 
the case of RedHat Enterprise applies the new mysql license, other 
distros are using mysql-4..

Comment 6 Jan Kratochvil 2004-10-18 14:16:52 EDT
Despite "Resolution UPSTREAM" no relevant Bug found on:

Expected reasons are: MySQL-4.0 turned mysqclient license LGPL -> GPL.
Some proprietary code of RedHat Enterprise links against mysqlclient.

Fedora would be fine to use MySQL-4.x. It is just not viable for
RedHat to split Fedora vs. Enterprise development.
Comment 7 Jan Kratochvil 2004-10-18 14:47:12 EDT
FYI Red Hat legal attitude at: Bug 136142
(mine): UPSTREAM points to the Red Hat legal department.
