I have identified the rpm to uninstall which is the following:
I run the following rpm command to uninstall it:
rpm -e mysql-5.0.77-4.el5_6.6
Then I receive a dependency error, basically saying that it cant remove this rpm because it has a dependancy on the rpm exim-4.63-10.el5.x86_64. see error below:
libmysqlclient.so.15()(64bit) is needed by (installed) exim-4.63-10.el5.x86_64 libmysqlclient.so.15(libmysqlclient_15)(64bit) is needed by (installed) exim-4.63-10.el5.x86_64
I then looked up what exim-4.63-10.el5.x86_64 actually is and determined that its a email application similar to sendmail. So I attempted to uninstall it and received some other dependency errors.
Is there a way to have the rpm command ignore the dependency or am i approaching this the wrong way. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
