Description of problem:
Missing the mysql-server rpm package from rc1 and release of RH ES and AS 3.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Unable to locate the mysql-server-3.23.58-1 rpm package on downloadable ISO's
from RHN or anywhere on the RHN channels (rhel-i386-es-3 rhel-i386-as-3).
For a web hosting environment it is very common for using apache, php with

Actually, it is not on the CD for RHEL3/ES -- at least as shipped by
Dell. The machines I'm dealing with are behind a (way too paranoid)
firewall that doesn't permit access to RHN. Problem for RH: the COO
stands behind the decision to avoid RH, thus lost revenue for RH:
we're rolling out *lots* of machines over the next 6 months, all with
ES. Fortunately (for me), I was able to use the RH9 SRPM. So, for
me, this is no longer an issue. <shrug/>
Hmmm... it's on the Extras CD along with the IBM and BEA jvms.
Although, I don't know what is sent out by Dell (sorry).
As it is available via RHN and on the Extras CD for RHEL3, this
report is closed.
