I want to install MySQL 5.5 in Ubuntu 10.04.
tar.gz for source installing, I found DEB release
mysql-5.5.25-ubuntu10.04-x86_64.deb in this page for Ubuntu. So, I simply download it.
But I not familiar with dpkg
When I run
dpkg -i mysql-5.5.25-ubuntu10.04-x86_64.deb, it not install anything. No MySQL directory created, and also no init file created
whereis mysql give nothing
Below is what we can see when I run dpkg:
myserver:~/sourceinstaller# dpkg -i mysql-5.5.25-ubuntu10.04-x86_64.deb Selecting previously deselected package mysql. (Reading database ... 25178 files and directories currently installed.) Unpacking mysql (from mysql-5.5.25-ubuntu10.04-x86_64.deb) ... Setting up mysql (5.5.25) ... myserver:~/sourceinstaller#
I don't know what I've just missed.
