[Using LinuxMint-9 with Windows-7 on a laptop with Pentium dual-core 2.2 GHz cpu, 4 GB RAM, 500GB hdd]
I have selected mysql-cluster-client and mysql-cluster-server for re-installtion and repeatedly get the response:
"E: /var/cache/apt/archives/mysql-cluster-client-5.1_7.0.9-1ubuntu7_amd64.deb: trying to overwrite '/usr/bin/mysql', which is also in package mysql-client-core-5.1 0
E: /var/cache/apt/archives/mysql-cluster-server-5.1_7.0.9-1ubuntu7_amd64.deb: trying to overwrite '/usr/bin/my_print_defaults', which is also in package mysql-server-core-5.1 0" in spite of having removed the offending files from /usr/bin, expecting them to be replaced during the re-installation.
I also tried to completely remove mysql-client-core-5.1 and got the same error. This is the default database installed with the "empty" packages first mentioned.
How can I overcome this, please?
Yours hopefully, -
