mysql 4 using backports
I really need to install Mysql 4 on my debian box. I am a recent convert from
RedHat. I am running Debain stable packages but need some of the new
funcitonality in mysql 4 in to port some of my apps properly. I was going to
install from source but came accross backports and though I should try it.
I am not very familar with apt yet. Should I remove the existing mysql
packages first or can do an upgrade?
I have added
deb http://uk.www.backports.org/debian stable mysql-dfsg
If I now run 'apt-cache search mysql' I get
W: Couldn't stat source package list http://www.backports.org
- stat (2 No such file or directory)
Does that mean I have to add lines under /var/lib/apt too?
any help appreciated
