Unhappy MySQL 4.1.11 don't start after successful installation under FedoraCore3

Hi all!

I have Fedora Core 3 installed, I remove MySQL 3.23 and install MySQL 4.1.11 with these commands:

in packages installation wizard I remove MySQL (3.23), then
I downloaded MySQL 4.1.11 and in the shell I typed:
rpm -Uvh MySQL-server-4.1.11-0.i386.rpm MySQL-client-4.1.11-0.i386.rpm MySQL-devel-4.1.11-0.i386.rpm MySQL-shared-4.1.11-0.i386.rpm

but an sad message destroyed my humor:
Starting MySQL................................... [FAILED]
What does it mean??

I found with "tail -20 /var/log/mysqld.log":
050504 11:47:13 [Note] /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld: Shutdown complete

050504 11:47:13 mysqld ended

050504 11:47:17 mysqld started
050504 11:47:17 [ERROR] Can't start server: Bind on TCP/IP port: Address already in use
050504 11:47:17 [ERROR] Do you already have another mysqld server running on port: 3306 ?
050504 11:47:17 [ERROR] Aborting

050504 11:47:17 [Note] /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld: Shutdown complete

050504 11:47:17 mysqld ended

050504 12:29:46 /usr/libexec/mysqld: Normal shutdown

050504 12:29:46 /usr/libexec/mysqld: Shutdown Complete

050504 12:29:46 mysqld ended

What does "Address already in use" when "telnet localhost 3306" responds:
telnet: connect to address Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

This means that the port is free...? yes? Is for this reason that MySQL don't start??

I found at www .whoopis . com / howtos / php5-mysql4-FC3-rpm.html that a solution should be remove mysql-data directory.... but it still don't work.

I don't know where I have to shoot my head....
If anyone have an idea... tell me his adventure or thinks....

intall not upgrade

The -Uvh switch when installing an RPM does an upgrade not an install. See what MySql rpms you have installed
as root:
rpm -qa My*
If there are old ones you want to remove, do this by
rpm -e packageName
Then when you want to install a specific package
rpm -ivh packageName1 packageName2
