I wrote that. I also wrote that it will be at 3.5.0 in a few days.

fair enough.
Given that you are not using cookie authentication and living in a
english-reading-only universum you might skip these requirements.

$ rpm -qc phpMyAdmin3

configure it for your needs. The rpm config ships with http auth
enabled, the tarballs config.sample.inc.php from upstream with cookie
auth. It's really only a matter of configuration.

Ah, and now that you are using cookie auth (At least I believe you does)
then I would advise installing the mcrypt dependencies :-) Please have a
look at the documentation about that.
