mysql on redhat 9 problem


hi all!
I m using redhat 9 and was trying to install mySQl on my system.
I somehow installed the mySQl package (rpm)but then it failed to start so i deleted the /usr/bin/mysql* files and tried to install it again,
when i run the rpm -i command it says that rpm is already installed while i cannot see the mysql commands (that i previously deleted from /usr/bin) and now i m stuck and dono wat to do.,
wat i would like to do is do a complete reinstall of mysql packages.
any ideas guys

never just delete files.. that's a bit daft....

rpm -Uvh --force mysql-something.rpm

that will make it reinstall again.

Not sure if it'll work, but try rpm -U name_of_rpm. It might fail saying that ver. is already installed though. If that happens, you try rpm -e (erase) package_name. Also, there are some other options in the man page about repackaging and/or rebuilding that I've never tried, but might help you out.

Good luck.

another way to reinstall

while rpm -Uvh --force will work
rpm -ivh --force will work as well

(the --force is key here)
