I have made it to step 14 of the Fedora Core 2 + RT 3.2.x Install Guide, but I’ve run into a MySQL error shown at the bottom. I have
the following MySQL RPMs installed:
I’ve found a lot of mailing lists that show this error, but I haven’t found a solution. I also have no experience with databases,
so I’m not really sure how to start troubleshooting and there isn’t anything significant in the logs.
[root@lionheart rt-3.2.2]# make initialize-database
/usr/bin/perl //usr/local/rt3/sbin/rt-setup-database --action init --dba root --prompt-for-dba-password
In order to create a new database and grant RT access to that database,
this script needs to connect to your mysql instance on localhost as root.
Please specify that user’s database password below. If the user has no database
password, just press return.
Password: DBI connect(’;host=localhost’,‘root’,…) failed: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server;
consider upgrading MySQL client at //usr/local/rt3/sbin/rt-setup-database line 101
Failed to connect to dbi:mysql:;host=localhost as root: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server;

Thanks for your help. Allyn
