compile MySQL yourself, just download the binary MySQL version for
your OS and install it. The version you want is at:
There may be another mirror site that's closer to you.
The second answer is, install a C++ compiler so that you can compile
MySQL on your own system. Since you have a commercial version of Linux,
why not take advantage of the support you get with that and find out the
recommended C++ compiler for your platform? I'm sure that someone who
uses Linux will be able to tell you where you can find a binary for the
latest GCC, which (if you install a complete package and not just the
C language support) includes a C++ compiler that is known to work with
I would recommend the first option, downloading the pre-compiled MySQL
from the MySQL site. It is simpler for you, and will get you up and
running. Later on you can worry about installing a C++ compiler.
