Beware: this is wrong. The _shell_ will interpret '*' and try to expand
mys* to filenames that follow this pattern -- and will probably fail.

Try this instead:

ps -axw | grep -i mysql

This should list all packages installed which have 'mysql' as a
substring, regardless of case-folding (hint: 'man grep' is your friend)

When trying to query package info, don't use the _package file name_ to
obtain the info. 'rpm -qi MySQL' should give you the info ou need.
