I can not install mysql 4.1 on redhat 9.

P: n/a
hi, all
I have a red hat 9 and looks like it had mysql 3.2.54 installed before,
but, actually not, i can not find the install folder and I can not
uninstall it. So I am trying to install/upgrade to 4.1, but, still can
not get it work.
Here is what I did:

Red Hat drives me crazy! That Linux distro seems worse than others in
that it seems you can't uninstall or upgrade a single package, because
of all the dependencies. Basically, the only way to avoid the endless
chain of dependencies is to upgrade the _entire_ system all at once to
the latest set of RPM's offered by the Red Hat Network -- which of
course is a fee-based service.

IMHO, you'll be better off installing a non-RPM binary distribution of
MySQL (the .tar.gz downloads), or possibly even building MySQL from source.

# rpm -e 'rpm -qa | grep mysql'

# rpm -Uvh mysql-server-x.x.x mysql-client-x.x.x

or just update the mysql-client rpm at the same time as the server rpm

Use the binaries that provided by MySQL, instead of rpm.

Download the MySQL 4.1.14 binary from
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/4.1.html (under Linux downloads).
Then extract the binary and read the INSTALL-BINARY
