    Unhappy SuSE 10.0 - mysql.h Location ????

    Hi all,

    I am using SuSE 10.0 and have installed mysql package from its CD. Now I want to install snort-2.8.2 with mysql support. But mysql.h and other mysql header files are required to build snort. I could not find where these files are located. Can anyone help me to resolve this problem.

    Thanks

    You'll need mysql-devel packages..

    But not sure 10.0 is the best one to use unless you mean sled/sles
    then if so there seems to be one on the OBS Software.openSUSE.org
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.

    I would suggest you to update to a newer release. 10.0 has been discontinued
    for so long.

    BTW, I think the rpm proving those files is "mysql-debuginfo".

    Thanks for your response. I am trying to find out mysql-devel-4.1.13-3 (as my mysql version is the same), but I could not as it has become obsolete version. Now what should I do? I am not expert in LINUX, so I could not think about many options for solution. Can any one help me in this regard.

    My requirement is to have PHP with all its related packages, and MySQL with all its related packages. I think there is also issues in inter-compatibility between the versions of PHP & MySQL.

    By the way my Linux version is Open SuSE 10.0 (it was available somewhat around March 2008)

    Any Help????
    Thanks

    Under standard opensuse repositories I only can find a "mysql-debug" rpm
    file, but nothing about "mysql-devel" :-?

    OTHO, these packages I found are only available for opensuse 10.3 and up :-(

    If you want to keep an older version installed (which can be a bit dangerous
    as no security patches are longer available) I guess you could compile
    those packages yourself (mysql and php) instead of using suse ones.

    SuSE Linux 10.0 was discontinued on November 30 2007.

    'mysql-devel-4.1.13-3', it mean u will use mysql4.1.13 version.
    Its long time ago not supported any more. As mentioned above, u will face security issues.

    Better chioce for you is to install openSUSE 11.1, it has updated packages. You can install php,mysql,apache from YAST.
    YAST->software management->pattern->Server Functions->Web and LAMP server

    I am also a web developer, used all these. Better to use updated versions. As openSUSE 10.0 is already discontinued, so not good option to use it.
    Linux[openSUSE, KDE], PHP, MySQL, Wordpress, Tech News, etc :

    Thank all of you for your valuable responses. I think I should switch on OpenSuSE 11.1 now as I face lot of problems in finding software compatible with this version.

    Bother you again if I face other problems.

    Thanks again
