I need a very old version of mysql(4.0.x) on my Mac OS for debugging

and I know the file name format is:

mysql-standard-4.0.X-apple-darwinX-powerpc.tar.gz

I google some download links,but all valid

Who can provide me a standard version of mysql4.0 on Mac OS? (download link,or email: zenofo#gmail.com)

Why not compile it on your own? Sources can be had from http://mirror.provenscaling.com/mysql/community/source/4.0/. Open Terminal, change into the directory where you downloaded the tar ball to,

$ tar zxvf mysql-4.0.30.tar.gz
$ cd mysql-4.0.30
$ ./configure --prefix=${HOME}/mysql
$ make install

, done. The end product can be found in mysql in your home directory.

You may need to install Xcode first to get the compiler and all bits and pieces you need to compile software.
