Problem with "make initialize-database" - Client doesnot support authentication

OK, I completely rebuilt the system. The only errors I saw was when I built mysql-server:

warning: MySQL-server-4.1.8-0.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 5072e1f5

050111 7:45:38 [Warning] Asked for 196608 thread stack, but got 126976

I read a couple posts that these warnings were not serious, so I continued. All the database information was built when I did a
"make install" with RT3. Not a single error here. So after completing the install, I went to the web page, which returned an
"internal server error." The logs show the following:

DBI connect(‘dbname=rt3;host=localhost’,‘rt_user’,…) failed: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server;
consider upgrading MySQL client at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3/DBIx/SearchBuilder/Handle.pm line 96
[Tue Jan 11 09:03:43 2005] [error] Connect Failed Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider
upgrading MySQL client\n at /usr/local/rt3/lib/RT.pm line 168\n

For both DBI and DBD, I’ve installed RPMs and tarballs, and I still can’t get past this error. I’m a noob with sql, so I’m not sure
what to try. I’ve found a couple of sites that show this error when upgrading MySQL from 3.x to 4.x because of a password hashing
scheme, but MySQL-4.1.8 was installed from scratch.

Thanks for any help. Allyn

Easy way is --old-passwords

I’ve already read about this and done it, but I have the same problem. This system never had any other version of MySQL other than
the current one of 4.1.8-0. Given that, should I even have to do this?----- Original Message -----

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:

MySQL-server-4.1.8-0
MySQL-client-4.1.8-0
MySQL-devel-4.1.8-0
MySQL-shared-compat-4.1.8-0
MySQL-shared-4.1.8-0

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.

Probably time to rebuild your DBD::MySQL

May be you’ve done wrong things? ‘old-passwords’ should work.

Other way is build DBD::mysql 2.9004 from sources and necessarily
against mysql 4.1.x client libs. Binary RPMs wouldn’t help you here. If
you have SRC.RPM of the DBD::mysql 2.9004 then you can use it too.
