I am trying to gather information as what type of MySQL software is installed on a server here. Whether it is a community, standard or enterprise sort of. I am trying to get this info from the following ways but cannot tell what version it is...

Enter password:
Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 24505698
Server version: 5.1.25-rc-log Source distribution

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.

mysql> show variables like '%version%';
| Variable_name | Value |
| protocol_version | 10 |
| version | 5.1.25-rc-log |
| version_comment | Source distribution |
| version_compile_machine | i386 |
| version_compile_os | pc-solaris2.10 |

mysql> select version();
| version() |
| 5.1.25-rc-log |

I can tell from the above that it is a 5.1 version of MySQL but how to find if it is a Community,standard or enterprise edition? And also what does the "Source Distribution" mean in the version_comment? Does it mean it was installed using the source like rpm installation?
