Still a Linux newbie here so please be gentle....

I need to install php-mysql 5.1.6-23.2 but it won't unless i get installed won't install because it says mysql 5.0.77-3 from base has depsolving problem
mysql conflict with mysql-server-community

MySQL 5.1.41-0 was installed from RPM package not from YUM.

Many thanks and happy holidays.

    Accepted Solution

    It seems you have not installed MySQL Client and MySQL shared libraries.
    check for installed mysql components
     rpm -qa |grep -i mysql

    if not install below packages from the site you downloaded the MySQL sever RPM.


    hope this helps..

    Thanks ksnarooka,

    I did not have the shared libraries installed.  I do now:

    # rpm -qa |grep -i mysql

    However I still get this:
    # rpm -i php-mysql-5.1.6-23.2.el5_3.x86_64.rpm
    error: Failed dependencies:
   is needed by php-mysql-5.1.6-23.2.el5_3.x86_64
   is needed by php-mysql-5.1.6-23.2.el5_3.x86_64

    Uninstalled MySQL-shared-5.1.41-0 and installed MySQL-shared-compat-5.1.41 from MySQL download site.  This package included shared libraries for 4.x and 5.x, the first package omitted those libraries.
