Problems Installing/uninstalling MySQL On Fedora Fc4 (library dependency issue)


I'm a newbie with Linux and I'm having issues installing MySQL 5.0 and even uninstalling the previous version. I suspect this has to do with library dependency issues. (BTW, I have a Dell Lattitude P4 1.8 GHz, 512MB machine running Fedora FC4).

When trying to install the MySQL server RPM package, I get the following error:
# rpm -i MySQL-server-standard-5.0.21-1.rhel4.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
MySQL conflicts with mysql-4.1.11-2.i386
MySQL-server conflicts with mysql-server-4.1.11-2.i386

One thing to note: I have never explicitly installed the MySQL server on my machine before. The 4.1.x version on my machine was laid down during the OS install process (when I was installing packages during the FC4 install).
I tried uninstalling the previous RPM package by doing the following, but failed.

# rpm -e mysql-4.1.11-2.i386
error: Failed dependencies:
libmysqlclient.so.14 is needed by (installed) dovecot-0.99.14-4.fc4.i386 libmysqlclient.so.14 is needed by (installed) perl-DBD-MySQL-2.9007-1.i386
libmysqlclient.so.14 is needed by (installed) mysql-server-4.1.11-2.i386 libmysqlclient_r.so.14 is needed by (installed) mysql-server-4.1.11-2.i386
libmysqlclient_r.so.14 is needed by (installed) MySQL-python-1.2.0-1.i386
mysql = 4.1.11-2 is needed by (installed) mysql-devel-4.1.11-2.i386
mysql = 4.1.11-2 is needed by (installed) mysql-server-4.1.11-2.i386
mysql is needed by (installed) MySQL-python-1.2.0-1.i386

Apparently the message I get back alludes to libmysqlclient.so not existing ? I'm not sure why that is, because when I do a search for that shared library, I get the following positive result:
# find / -name libmysqlclient.so.14
/usr/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.so.14

Does anyone have any ideas what the problem is ? How do I resolve these issues and how I can uninstall the mysql 4.1.11-2 server and install the mysql 5.0 server ?
Thanks a bunch.

Try using the command 'yum install mysql' as the root user...yum should install all those dependencies and may fix that problem.

I'd start by using yum to remove the old version first though...
