Thanks again for great and quick responsiveness to my post.
I've taken all your advises to find ways to get Mysql installed on my FreeBSD box.....and it's still unsuccessful.
I know it is part of because of lack of my knowlegde about *nix*. Following is what happend from my recent try:
I've added 192.168.0.155 blahblah.localdomain
as my FreeBSD box in my imaginary network into /etc/hosts
I still get the same error code 1 while mmake install MySQL
Host not found
$host -d blahblah.localdomain
long debugging message showing that my box do a query to ISP's DNS server and the server could not find domain named .localdomain
I did try a lil experimment as to set 192.168.0.155 blahblah.mydomain.com and do a
$ host blahblah.mydomain.com
blahblah.mydomain.com has ađress 188.8.131.52
it just ignore my imaginary private ađress bind to blahblah but return a reel ađress fơr a fully qualified domain existing out there.
So, I guess I 'm having DNS problem. For your ėnfo that my home network is set up with 1 freeBSD box acting as gateway to cable internet. it serves ipfilter firewall for internal network with dhclient running to get my dyn IP. All box ėn LAN are wins :( and :) with static internal IP and DNS's IP ađresses of ISP. ANd it is the same setup fơr my blahblah box otherwise it'd access internet. Is there anything wrong with my network config. I am practically not satified with the way my LAN set up but hey ...newbee on learning.
Two more things I'd like you to shred sơme light on:
*is it possible to keep existing LAN setup and do some work around to get MySQL + PHP + Apache ėnstalled and running. If yes, please how?
*set up DHCP and DNS caching service will solve problem and wheather it works with dynDNS since I'll get lou.homeip.net bind to my dyn IP.
Thanking you all in advance.
Happy and safe newyear
