Re: upgrading to MySQL 4 on woody
This is exactly what I did a few months ago, for the same reason. Add the following line to
deb http://www.backports.org/debian woody mysql-dfsg
Works like a charm. FYI, I also added:
deb http://www.backports.org/debian woody spamassassin
Becoming a firm believer that you CAN have it all, stability and the latest packages :)
There are other places to get backports, BTW. This one works for me.
