in thread can't install DBD::mysql under cygwin for mysql5

Pretty off-topic by now, but I'm interested, because this seems like something that could be useful in a variety of situations. (Which is why I answered on the thread, not private message.)

How does this work?

I don't really know the red hat packaging system. I have an ubuntu box, and am beginning to get handy with apt-get (not that handy though). Can I get it to work from there, either by using rpm on ubuntu, or some analogous way with apt-get?

I think a simple copy of a terminal red hat session where you went in and generated an "old source" would be valuable to others.

    How does this work?

    It's as simple as

    qwurx [shmem] 16:35 ~/old_stuff > perl -MLWP::Simple -e 'getstore("htt +p:// +edhat/9/os/SRPMS/mysql-3.23.54a-11.src.rpm","mysql-3.23.54a-11.src.rp +m")' qwurx [shmem] 16:38 ~/old_stuff > rpm2cpio mysql-3.23.54a-11.src.rpm | + cpio -i --make-directories cpio: write error: No space left on device qwurx [shmem] 16:38 ~/old_stuff > df -h .

    Whoops. Seems like my drive is stable... but you get the idea. There's the mysql-3.23.54a.tar.bz2 file and some patches from RedHat, along with some shell scripts and a spec file (which contains build instructions).

    Have to clean up a bit... I'll /msg you a link.
