You need to install all components of MySQL:

- server
- client
- development environment

After the development environment is installed, McIDAS will need to be rebuilt
to be able to issue MySQL calls.  I was going to touch base with you on this
in the next day or so to see if you are willing to run the GRIB filer and
serve the data via ADDE.

I see some MySQL stuff under /usr/sfw/mysql, but this does not look like a
full MySQL installation.


- do you need help in installing MySQL?

If yes, I would need 'root' privilege to do the installation for you.  We (Mike
Schmidt and I) would likely install the Blastwave distribution of MySQL since
we have used it under SunOS 5.9 SPARC with excellent results.
