Installing MySQL went a lot more smoothly than I expected. Now I just need to go home and pull out my copy of so I can familiarize myself with its workings. Cool. Databases are fun.
Incidentally, the LinuxPPC server that I’ve been running at work (and that I just installed MySQL on) actually has an uptime of 29 days right now. Sure, that’s small potatoes to a lot of people (and servers), but it’s a significant improvement over my initial experiences with LinuxPPC on that particular box. Shutting down Gnome and X-Windows seem to have made all the difference in the world (and freed up some memory as well).
