You can uninstall the rpm files by using the GUI rpm called "GNURPM". I think that is the easiest way to uninstall rpm files. You can find this program in your menu bar somewhere. after you started the GNURPM you need to find the mysql rpm files. These file should located under application and then database. Then just click them and uninstall them.
Now you need to go to mysql.com and download two rpm files
1) MySQL 3.23.43 Server (i386) (5.9M)
2) MySQL 3.23.43 Client programs (i386) (1.7M)
Then install these two files at the same time by typing
rpm -i MySQL-3.23.43-1.i386.rpm MySQL-client-3.23.43-1.i386.rpm
The mysqld daemon should be running right after the installition.
You won't see mysqld ended or '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) anymore!!!!
After this installition, you should find yourself unable to set the password for root.
"mysqladmin -u root password new_password" will not work!
So, try this:
shell> mysql -u root mysql
mysql> UPDATE user SET Password=PASSWORD(' put your password')
mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
Let me know if you have any questions!!
