I seem to be having real problems installing the binaries for mysql 4.1. I have gotten around the mysql_install_db problem by typing 'sh ./scripts/mysql_install_db' but now instead I have this error which I can't work out at all:
./scripts/mysql_install_db: line 1: ./bin/my_print_defaults: Permission denied
Could not find help file 'fill_help_tables.sql' in ./support-files or inside ..
The permissions for my_print_defaults seem just fine, and the help file it refers to is definately there.
