Description of problem:
As noted within Bug #107722, the MySQL server component is not
provided on the "Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (v. 3 for x86) Extras"
ISO image. Even though the download for the RPM files are available
via the RHN site, the ISO download does not contain these files.
Additionally, the description of the content leads one to believe
that the RPM only is for "MySQL client programs and shared libraries."
We REALLY need to have a clear way of getting and installing the
MySQL daemon onto our systems. I agree with the poster of Bug #
107722 that this situation needs improvement.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.) Download the "rhel-3-lacd-U2-i386.iso" from the RHN site.
2.) Burn a CD with this image.
3.) Search the CD for the required files. They are missing.
4.) Description & documentation on RHN is misleading.
Actual Results: Files are not provided. Documentation is misleading.
Expected Results: CD should have been created with the listed files.
Documentation should be clear that the RPM file contains the MySQL
daemon portion of the MySQL installation.
The mysql-server RPM is back in the core distribution as of RHEL3
Update 2. I'm just an engineer, don't ask me to explain why it was
not in the core to start with...
