yum install mysql-server.x86_64 - Transaction Check Errors

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I think yum is having problems installing MySQL 5.1 because there is already a pre-existing MySQL 5.5 installation. I wanted to cleanly remove MySQL 5.5 (I had problems with 5.5 with PHP and Python). I removed every folder and file associated with MySQL 5.5: yum remove mysql-server rm -i /usr/bin/mysq* rm -R /var/lib/mysql/ /usr/share/mysql/ /usr/lib64/mysql/ /usr/include/mysql/ I type find / -name mysql and I get /usr/lib64/perl5/auto/DBD/mysql /usr/lib64/perl5/DBD/mysql Now when I try yum install mysql-server.x86_64 I get the following error: Loaded plugins: downloadonly, fastestm (HowTos)
