I am upgrading my MySQL installation on a Fedora 10 (and 14) box (in test first.) I have made a system image (it is a VM) and have downloaded MySQL Server Community 5.1.69-1 from the MySQL site.
Once downloaded, and placed in the
/usr/etc folder, I ran the following:
[root@padev ~]# cd /usr/etc [root@padev etc]# ls -l total 20336 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 20799393 2013-04-30 14:34 MySQL-server-community-5.1.69-1.rhel5.i386.rpm [root@padev etc]# rpm -Uvh MySQL-server-community-5.1.69-1.rhel5.i386.rpm error: Failed dependencies: libgcc_s.so.1 is needed by MySQL-server-community-5.1.69-1.rhel5.i386 MySQL conflicts with mysql-5.0.88-1.fc10.x86_64 MySQL-server conflicts with mysql-server-5.0.88-1.fc10.x86_64 [root@padev etc]#
I thought that the
-U portion would invoke an upgrade and thus the second and third items in the error would be disregarded. I'm a bit of a Unix/Linux newbie, so I don't know how to upgrade
