Hi, Something weirdd happened with my MySQL installation. I removed the whole mysql package with yum (yum remove mysql*), but it gives the following when trying to remove mysql-server: yum remove mysql-server Repository base is listed more than once in the configuration Setting up Remove Process Resolving Dependencies --> Populating transaction set with selected packages. Please wait. ---> Package mysql-server.i386 0:4.1.20-1.FC4.1 set to be erased --> Running transaction check Dependencies Resolved ============================================================================= Package Arch Version Repository Size ============================================================================= Removing: mysql-server i386 4.1.20-1.FC4.1 installed 22 M Transaction Summary ============================================================================= Install 0 Package(s) Update 0 Package(s) Remove 1 Package(s) Total download size: 0 Is this ok [y/N]: y Downloading Packages: Running Transaction Test Finished Transaction Test Transaction Test Succeeded Running Transaction error reading information on service mysqld: No such file or directory error: %preun(mysql-server-4.1.20-1.FC4.1.i386) scriptlet failed, exit status 1 Removed: mysql-server.i386 0:4.1.20-1.FC4.1 Complete! I tried to re-install mysql* but no luck. Please provide me with any help on how to re-install mysql-server and the rest of the mysql package. I tried to fix it with rpm as well, but if I want to remove mysql-server, I get the following: rpm -e -p mysql error: package mysql is not installed And when I try to install it: rpm -i -p mysql error: open of mysql failed: No such file or directory Please help! Thanks!
