You can find lots of RPMs at http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/. I'm
not sure exactly which one you need, but I think this RPM should
work for you:

Yes, you can use the C API; it will probably be easier to get working
with your compiler tools, since C++ has been changing much more than
C. You can look at the example programs in the client/ directory of
the MySQL source distribution. They show how to connect, insert,
select, etc. Look especially at insert_test.c and select_test.c.
