If for some crazy reason you want to do this and you get bitten by:
/bin/rm: cannot remove `libtoolT’: No such file or directory
then change your configure command to:
env RM=”/bin/rm -f” ./configure –configure-options-here
Debian Squeeze comes with MySQL 5.1.66
I was bitten by this lately, so I post it here as a hint (it may bite you too):
You use apt on your Debian/Sarge to install apache2, mysql, php4 and of course you also install php4-mysql. One should expect that after:
apt-get install php4-mysql
you can connect immediately from your php script to a MySQL database. Calling simply phpinfo() will prove you wrong because of a minor detail: You must add the following line
at /etc/php4/apache2/php.ini and then issue an apache2ctl graceful .
Now you are OK.
