MySql: Trouble after upgrading from 3.23 to 4.0 (FC2)

Hi all,

After an upgrade to mysql I tried to start de server with:

mysqld_safe &

I got:

chown: mysql' invalid user
Starting mysql daemon with databases from /var/libmysql
040830 15:50:10 mysql ended

The steps for the upgrade were:

downloaded the RPMs to /usr/local/mysql

shell> cd /usr/local/mysql
shell> rpm -Uvh --nodeps MySQL-server-4.0.20-0.i386.rpm
shell> rpm -Uvh MySQL-shared-compat-4.0.20-0.i386.rpm
shell> rpm -Uvh MySQL-client-4.0.20-0.i386.rpm

(it installed to usr/bin)

then, I could never start the server

What I want to do is to fully uninstall mysql, and start over

How can I do that ? (Fedora Core 2)

"rpm -qa | grep mysql"
a list with all installed RPM's containing "mysql" come us...then "rpm -e package" will uninstall the one you want.


PS: sure, after this you'll install with "rpm -ihv mysql_package.rpm"
