MySQL 4.1 in Gentoo 2006.0

nano -w /etc/portage/package.use
dev-db/mysql innodb berkdb

emerge -1 mysql
his will emerge the dev-db/mysql ebuild without adding it to the world

namespace. Thus, whenever you type ’emerge –update world’ mysql will not be

updated. This is extremely useful since portage doesn’t support straight,

unattended updates for mysql. Since you will have to manually update mysql

anyway, you may wish to remove it from world so that your auto-update script(s)

don’t fail.

emerge –config =dev-db/mysql-4.1.20
ebuild /var/db/pkg/dev-db/mysql-4.1.20/mysql-4.1.20.ebuild
/etc/init.d/mysql start
mysql> SET PASSWORD FOR ‘root’@’localhost’=PASSWORD(‘password_here’);
rc-update add mysql default
