Installed RPM not listing

On a FC2 system I upgraded from MySQL 3 to MySQL 4.x

I downloaded the source RPM from mysql.com and then went through the process of installing it with the final step:

rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/PRMS/i368/MySQL*

Now the install seems to complete although I can't get into mysql server.

Now the issue is that when I do a

rpm -qa mysql it doesn't find anything, but when I repeat the installation procedure as above it says that all that stuff is installed already.

Somethign is obviously wrong, but dunno how to correct it or what to do next.

try this: rpm -qa | grep mysql

with the syntax you use the package name will have to match exact (case and all). using grep its quite a bit more tolerant.

what happens when you do whereis mysql ?
or when you do service mysqld status ?
I am root. If you see me laughing you better have a backup.

You might also consider issuing the command updatedb, which, according to the manpage, updates the slocate database. Do this after installing the rpm, then do rpm -q* package and you may find it is there.
