[Mediawiki-l] install bug in rc1 (with solution)

I tried to install Wikimedia 1.4rc1 on a French provider (free.fr) and I had
the following problem: wikimedia says it cannot connect to the db.

I found that mysql_errno() in config/index.php returns "", and not a number
so it always reaches the default branch of the switch near line 454.

So, I managed to make the initial install by adding a 'case ""' near the
'case 2000'.

(But then I got login problems. I'll post more details later...(Yes, cookies
are sent, I can see them in my 'cookie manager'))
