Hi!

From what site did you search for mysql??
The 3.22 version have been out for a *long* time for now!
Check http://www.tcx.se/download.html.
You have 3.22.22 already available, both source and the binaries.
Just see 15 to 20 lines down from the start of the page.

Please consult the MySQL manual about this.  You might need to run
mysql_install_db as root user; it doesn't matter if you have a source
or a binary distribution.  host.frm is a table definition file for
table host.  It is one of the tables in database 'mysql' and very
relevant.  And, please see also section 'Setting up the initial MySQL
privileges.'  from the manual.

Regards,
