Nothing to do usually means it is already installed or it did not find the correct rpm file. Add -v to see more info. You can also use 'yum install '

  • i have checked the correct rpm and gave..No it is not installed yet

  • can you check if you have outside network connection? also check rpm -qa|grep mysql to see if it installed or not.
