I am in the process of upgrading a few things on my system.
My probelm is that I tried to upgrade MySQL via rpm.
I issued the proper command
# rpm -U MySQL-server-4.0.18-0.rpm
So that I could upgrade the package.
That worked for the server, but now that I'm trying to integrate MySQL w/ PHP I am having a problem.
I decided to uninstall MySQL and start over. here is where I have the problem.
I try to remove the rpm and it says that its not installed, then I try to install the rpm and it says that it's already installed.
# rpm -e MySQL-server-4.0.18-0.i386.rpm
error: package MySQL-server-4.0.18-0.i386.rpm is not installed
# rpm -i MySQL-server-4.0.18-0.i386.rpm
warning: MySQL-server-4.0.18-0.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 5072e1f5
package MySQL-server-4.0.18-0 is already installed
When I run MySQL it starts, so how do I remove it via rpm?
