I installed MySQL by rpm before:

[root@jiaoyou sphinx-0.9.9-rc2]# rpm -aq|grep -i mysql

And now I need to install it from source code:

Will it install all the three above with source or not?

@HD,I'm also reading this page,but didn't see where it says "with the default options will install mysql libraries and mysql server"? – abcgreen Aug 29 '09 at 15:33
In the configure options you can find "without-server" is not a default – HD. Aug 29 '09 at 15:37
