I would like to install MySQL under
/usr/local and not use the RPM installer. The download page offers...
Linux (x86, glibc-2.2, "standard" is static)
Which is the right one? Going by the docs it seems like I want the first one because it says "the binary release is linked with -static, which means you do not normally need to worry about which version of the system libraries you have", but I'm not sure.
