Problem installing updates after installing MySQL 4.1.11

Ok, I'm a MS developer (hold your fire) who has seen the light. I'm learning as fast as I can and have been very impressed with Fedora. I am running into a problem that I can't resolve alone and can't find an answer on Google:

I installed FC3 and included ALL the options (full install) so I can learn all the pieces of Fedora. I want to develop some Jabber tools and it needed more than the MySQL 3.23 that installed with the OS. I upgraded to 4.1.11 and all was fine.

When I went to get current using the Up2Date GUI, the problem came up. I keep getting this warning when I try to update almost anything. It seems that lots of apps depend on MySQL. Here is the warning:

Code:
Test install failed because of package conflicts:
The following packages were added to your selection to satisfy dependencies:
Name                                    Version        Release
--------------------------------------------------------------
mysql                                   3.23.58        16.FC3.1            

file /usr/bin/comp_err from install of mysql-3.23.58-16.FC3.1 conflicts with file from package MySQL-devel-4.1.11-0
file /usr/bin/mysql_config from install of mysql-3.23.58-16.FC3.1 conflicts with file from package MySQL-devel-4.1.11-0
I'm pretty clueless about how updates work so any help would be rewarded with copious amounts of praise and admiration.

Thanks in advance.

what its saying is that you have some newer versions and some older version of mysql. My recommendation is use yum to update it seems more effective than up2date plus I think up2date will be deprecated.

In saying that the simplest way is to remove mysql and re-install. :P

I agree strikeforce's sugestion, because your devel of mysql is 4.1.11,but your mysql base is 3.23.58.

The answer

As promised, I'm back to sing the praises of whomever helped me.

"Hear ye hear ye, to all in the land. Give praise to Strike Force & Kevin Zhang"

However, the answer was easier than you suggested. Until tonight I didn't know about YUM (I told you I'm new). Instead of uninstalling MySQL, I thought I would just see how 'smart' YUM is. I tried the following:

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# yum update
And after 440MB of EVERY update I needed, I am all updated.

Here is a little VBS for the fellow MS converts:

Code:
IF strikeforce >= smart AND kevin_zhang >= smart THEN
     garthbrown = success
END IF
Thanks for the help!
