Apologies if it's something glaringly obvious I'm new at this.
I have searched here and on Google but got no where.

Thankyou

What was the actual command you ran to try and update?

Trickie 07-01-2008 03:14 AM

Clearly, MySQL-test-community needs mysql-client which, apparently, you do not have. Mysql-client is a GUI front-end. I don't know Centos but perhaps you should download and install mysql-client first. Normally, of course, it's not necessary because you can use MySQL quite happily on the command line.

Have a look here:-

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i386.rpm.html

You'll see that mysql-client is a dependency and you can download it.

Hope this helps.

Thank you fro the help.

The original comand was yum --enablerepo=centosplus update mysql

Tried downloading the client it's not made any difference still getting the same message.

Trickie 07-02-2008 04:19 AM

If you are getting exactly the same error message then it would appear that either the client hasn't been installed properly, or it has been installed to a place where mysql-test-community can't find it.

You could try running this from the command line:-

find / -iname '*mysql-client*'


Or this:-

pkg-config --list-all

...to see if pkgconfig knows about it.


For further help you could have a look here:-

Make sure that all the packages relate to the same version of MySQL. The above link deals with version 5, but later versions are listed on the side bar.
