I have installed MariaDB 5.3.3 on a Centos 6 server. In order to do that, I had to issue this command before installing the MariaDB-server rpm:
rpm -e --nodeps mysql-libs
And now mariadb and all the other software in the server is working fine.
Today I tried to upgrade the packages in my server the packages were successfully upgraded with the only exception of postfix which I can't install because of this error:
Running rpm_check_debug ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve: mysql-libs is needed by postfix-2:2.6.6-2.2.el6_1.x86_64 ** Found 1 pre-existing rpmdb problem(s), 'yum check' output follows: 2:postfix-2.6.6-2.1.el6_0.x86_64 has missing requires of mysql-libs Your transaction was saved, rerun it with: yum load-transaction /tmp/yum_save_tx-2012-02-13-09-487yg1lQ.yumtx .. install failed!
Could anyone help me overcome this problem? I am pretty sure that the software in the
mysql-libs package is already installed by mariadb packages but this information ins not in the rpm system.
