Hi Demetris,

You should find my port of MySQL in the repositories for the N800. Unfortunately it's only version 4.1.22, as the SDK for that platform wasn't up-to-date enough to build later versions. I've been using it successfully with Perl-based applications for quite a while now. You may need to port whatever Java libraries are needed (I only did the Perl DBI/DBD modules), but the DBMS is available.

Reference for anybody wanting MySQL on the N900, I've got it working successfully (version 5.0.89) on Diablo, but haven't yet had time to sort out the process of getting it into Extras as I'm currently too busy with other priorities (same goes for Apache). As soon as I get time I'll get them into Extras; meanwhile if anybody's in desperate need, get in touch and I'll let you have pre-release debs.
