I'm setting up a debian server as a development server. apt-get gave me everything I need to install, except for mysql 5.5 as this version is still in the experimental branch.
So what I tried to do is download the .deb package from the mysql website, and execute :
dpkg -D1 -i mysql-5.5.19-debian6.0-x86_64.deb
The command shows this :
Selecting previously deselected package mysql. (Reading database ... 38342 files and directories currently installed) Unpacking mysql (from mysql-5.5.19-debian6.0-x86_64.deb) ... D000001: process_archive oldversionstatus=not installed D000001: process_archive updating info directory Setting up mysql (5.5.19) ... D000001: deferred_configure updating conffiles
... and exits. But I can't find anything installed. No executables, no configuration files.
What am I missing ? How do I install mysql 5.5 on Debian ?
