Question PostgreSQL Uninstall


I'm trying to install MySQL on my mandrake 9.x server to use with phpBB2. However PostgreSQL was automatically installed at setup. I don't really want to use Postgre because I don't know how it works. However, when I try to uninstall it I get a bunch of dependency errors...how do i uninstall the packages without breaking the dependencies? Thanks.

When I eneter 'Remove Software' in MDK 9.1 menus (Configuration->Packages->Remove Software - I use Polish version, so I'm translating Plish names into English, in your case they may be different) and click on PostgreSQL the dependencies are only other parts of Postgre. You may remove them (in fact, you should). If you have any other dependencies, or you're in doubt, please post the list.

Here's the list...

[root@Velma mark]# rpm -e postgresql-7.2.2-1.3.90mdk
error: removing these packages would break dependencies:
postgresql >= 7.1.3 is needed by php-pgsql-4.2.3-1mdk
postgresql = 7.2.2-1.3.90mdk is needed by libecpg3-7.2.2-1.3.90mdk
postgresql = 7.2.2-1.3.90mdk is needed by libpgperl-7.2.2-1.3.90mdk
postgresql = 7.2.2-1.3.90mdk is needed by libpgsqlodbc0-7.2.2-1.3.90mdk
postgresql = 7.2.2-1.3.90mdk is needed by postgresql-devel-7.2.2-1.3.90mdk

They're parts of PostgreSQL. You can remove them.
