how did you get that list of pkgs? the fact that you are listing version
numbers, would indicate you found that list somehwere... as for the mysql,
mysql-devel and mysql-server pkgs, those are simply duplicates of what
you've already installed. given that you installed the MySQL pkg instead of
the mysql pkg, i'd wager you grabed the rpm from mysql.com's site, right?
if you did, that's fine, but you don't need redhat's versions - they are
redundant. the other stuff you can install using any number of rpm install
tools including good 'ol rpm.
JL>>> I got the list of packages from another board. Yes, I got the rpm from
mysql.com. You are absolutely right.
JL>>> Let me try to understand. What is the difference between the list of
pkgs that I mentioned, and the MySQL pkg from mysql.com? Does the MySQL pkg
consist of subsets of pkgs (e.g. MySQL pkg consists of mysql, mysql-devel,
and mysql-server pkgs)?
JL>>> How about these pkgs?

nope - all that does is add an icon to an already installed application -
just like adding something to the start menu or task bar in windows - you
have to have the application already installed, and then you just add
shortcuts to the menus. it just so happens that installers (both windows
and linux ones) will usually do this for you.
JL>>> But it does allow you to install "Standard Packages" and "Extra
Packages". I am not sure exactly what it does though.
