how to source install MySQL 5.5.15 on centos

yum install gcc gcc-c++
yum install ncurses-devel

mkdir -p /tmp
cd /tmp
wget http://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/MySQL-5.5/mysql-5.5.15.tar.gz/from/http://mysql.he.net/
wget http://www.cmake.org/files/v2.8/cmake-2.8.4.tar.gz
wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/bison/bison-2.5.tar.gz

cd /tmp
tar zxvf cmake-2.8.4.tar.gz
cd cmake-2.8.4
./configure
make
make install

cd /tmp
tar zxvf bison-2.5.tar.gz
cd bison-2.5
./configure
make
make install

/usr/sbin/groupadd mysql
/usr/sbin/useradd -g mysql mysql
cd /tmp
tar xvf mysql-5.5.15.tar.gz
cd mysql-5.5.15/
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local/mysql \
-DMYSQL_UNIX_ADDR=/tmp/mysql.sock \
-DDEFAULT_CHARSET=utf8 \
-DDEFAULT_COLLATION=utf8_general_ci \
-DWITH_EXTRA_CHARSETS=all \
-DWITH_MYISAM_STORAGE_ENGINE=1 \
-DWITH_INNOBASE_STORAGE_ENGINE=1 \
-DWITH_MEMORY_STORAGE_ENGINE=1 \
-DWITH_READLINE=1 \
-DENABLED_LOCAL_INFILE=1 \
-DMYSQL_DATADIR=/var/mysql/data \
-DMYSQL_USER=mysql

This is my case ,you can ignore

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/ssdc/mysql -DMYSQL_UNIX_ADDR=/tmp/mysql5.5.sock -DDEFAULT_CHARSET=utf8 -DDEFAULT_COLLATION=utf8_general_ci -DWITH_EXTRA_CHARSETS=all -DWITH_MYISAM_STORAGE_ENGINE=1 -DWITH_INNOBASE_STORAGE_ENGINE=1 -DWITH_READLINE=1 -DENABLED_LOCAL_INFILE=1 -DMYSQL_DATADIR=/ssdc/mysql/data

 

make
make install

other ready jobs you need to do:
chmod +w /usr/local/mysql
chown -R mysql:mysql /usr/local/mysql
ln -s /usr/local/mysql/lib/libmysqlclient.so.16 /usr/lib/libmysqlclient.so.16
mkdir -p /var/mysql/
mkdir -p /var/mysql/data/
mkdir -p /var/mysql/log/
chown -R mysql:mysql /var/mysql/
cd support-files/
cp my-large.cnf /var/mysql/my.cnf
cp mysql.server /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld

/usr/local/mysql/scripts/mysql_install_db \
–defaults-file=/var/mysql/my.cnf \
–basedir=/usr/local/mysql \
–datadir=/var/mysql/data \
–user=mysql

chmod +x /etc/init.d/mysqld

chkconfig –add mysqld
chkconfig –level 345 mysqld on
