If I remember it right, you use openSuSE, so you should use the rpm
command to check your installed packages. I suppose you installed the
packages from your openSuSE distribution, didn't you?

rpm -qa | grep mysql

will list all packages with mysql in their names.
If you installed the openSUSE packages you should get something similar to:

(this is on openSuSE 11.1).

rpm -qil mysql

will show a package description and list all files in the mysql package,
this is the server package.

rpm -qil mysql-client

will show a package description and list all files in the mysql-client

Check " man rpm " for more rpm magic.
