Install Cacti on CentOS

Still a Linux newbie here so please be gentle....

I'm trying to install Cacti 0.8.7e on CentOS 5.4 64bit with MySQL 5.1.41-0

I need to install php-mysql 5.1.6-23.2 but it won't unless i get libmysqlclient.so.15 installed

libmysqlclient.so.15 won't install because it says mysql 5.0.77-3 from base has depsolving problem
mysql conflict with mysql-server-community

MySQL 5.1.41-0 was installed from RPM package not from YUM.

Many thanks and happy holidays.

It seems you have not installed MySQL Client and MySQL shared libraries.
check for installed mysql components
 rpm -qa |grep -i mysql

if not install below packages from the site you downloaded the MySQL sever RPM.

MySQL-client-5.1.41-0
MySQL-shared-5.1.41-0

hope this helps..

Thanks ksnarooka,

I did not have the shared libraries installed.  I do now:

# rpm -qa |grep -i mysql
MySQL-server-community-5.1.41-0.rhel5
MySQL-client-community-5.1.41-0.rhel5
MySQL-shared-community-5.1.41-0.rhel5

However I still get this:
# rpm -i php-mysql-5.1.6-23.2.el5_3.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        libmysqlclient.so.15()(64bit) is needed by php-mysql-5.1.6-23.2.el5_3.x86_64
        libmysqlclient.so.15(libmysqlclient_15)(64bit) is needed by php-mysql-5.1.6-23.2.el5_3.x86_64

Thanks

Uninstalled MySQL-shared-5.1.41-0 and installed MySQL-shared-compat-5.1.41 from MySQL download site.  This package included shared libraries for 4.x and 5.x, the first package omitted those libraries.
