I just installed Fedora Core 1. Here comes the first of my many dumb questions.
I chose to install MySQL along with Fedora, but upon checking the installation, I found an old version 3 MySQL. I decided to install 4.0.18, so downloaded the file from the MySQL site (mysql-standard-4.0.18-pc-linux-i686.tar.gz).
If I right click on the file in Konqueror (KDE desktop), I get choice of "Extract here" and "Preview in Archive". If I do the same in Nautilus (GNOME), I get "Extract to" (no option of viewing the files).
When I do view the files, it seems obvious that the files should be extracted to nearly 20 locations. It doesn't seem that either "Extract here" or "Extract to" would accomplish this.
I could use the command line, but it seems as if I'd have the same problem.
How do I get the files to go where they need to go?
Thanks in advance for your help.
