Re: [SLE] SuSE 9.1 Feedback - php and mysql

See the php website. If I recall, the problem is that php no longer
supplies its own version of the mysql headers given the frequent changes
there. What was happening is that users had newer/different mysql headers
and libs that would conflict with the php default set. A decision was made
for default to not compile -- with-mysql so that the user could supply the
correct path to the user installed mysql headers. This is from memory. I
also don't know if suse put out a patch via yast to take care of this. I
know this was discussed earlier on the list, but I don't recall any
