Angry failed dependencies

i am trying to install the newest mysql version.
i have downloaded the newest version 4 rpm.
when i do rpm -U MySQL-server-4.0.17-0.i386.rpm
then it says:
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by (installed) mod_auth_mysql-1.11-12 is needed by (installed) perl-DBD-mysql-2.1021.3 is needed by (installed) php-mysql-
how can i fix this, ive tried downloading the file and do:
rpm -U MySQL-server-4.0.17-0.i386.rpm then it says that he can't read the libmysql... file (logical becouse it isnt a rpm file)
but how SHOULD i fix this? please help me fast!

You can try to find the updated rpms for these packages, or do it the way I recommend, grab the source RPM for these packages and rebuild them, this way they get compiled against your current libraries and won't complain.
First force upgrade the mysql package ignoring the warning(with --force), download the source RPMs for these 3 packages, then go to /usr/src/redhat/SPEC and do "rpmbuild -bb <filename>.spec"for each of them. After its done the finished rpms will appear in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386, which you can then proceed to install.

Question Similar problem

Did you get past this? I just installed the Fedora Core which came with MySQL version 3.23.58. I downloaded MySQL-client-4.0.17-0.i386.rpm , MySQL-server-4.0.17-0.i386.rpm, and MySQL-Max-4.0.17-0.i386.rpm.

When I try either an -i or -U, I get all these conflicts. Pouring over the docs yields no hints as to how I should proceed.
