hello guys,

is there a way to deinstall mysql 5.x.x and apache 2.x on fedora, without deinstall all the dependencies..
I need mysql 4.1.19 and apache 1.3.35.. but if i make a fresh install and install cyrus-imap and other stuff, and deinstall mysql 5 and apache 2 it removes all the other stuff to what even close uses apache and mysql smile.gif

I don't have fedora on any of my machines *shudders*.

Does it try to remove all those deps when you just 'yum --remove mysql'?

If it does, it won't remove the config files (unless you purge them), so you could just reinstall the new versions (or old, as the case is here) and it would get any deps it needs again.

example:

yum --remove httpd
removes: awstats, webalizer etc.

yum --remove mysql
removes all libs and progs what uses mysql including php

sucks like hell

but i figured it out.. rpm -e -nodeep mysql smile.gif
but that ended up with lotsa errors, so reinstalled and removed with yum and reinstalled everthing without rpm's..

except that freaking sasl2 wont run right

Since you're going to install the same package, only a lower version, doesn't it get the dependancies you need?

Couldn't you reinstall awstats, webalizer, etc.?

Sorry, not familar with fedora. =)

not via rpm or yum.. manualy compile yes.

Thats what i hate on linux, if you are a complet noob like me, you have to stick with what its in the dist, or you have to ask hours and hours silly questions.

Now i have webserver, mail and pop server no IMAP and no FTP and it toke me 2.5 weeks. of reading 4 books, and spend hours on google.

On windows i set up 1000 domains in this time smile.gif

is there any easy FTP server out, what simple verify aginst a mysql ? and where i dont have to read through 500 man pages first ?

You had to elarn to do it with Windows, and unfrotauntely you will have to learn it again for Linux. TBH, Fedora is not a server OS, and isn't really that suitable. Distributions like Gentoo and Debian are more suited to it because they give more flexibility in terms of which packages can be isntalled, which versions you want, and even which dependencies you want to fulfil, and which you aren't bothered about. Gentoo acheieves almost complete freedom to install anything you want, in any combination, by compiling stuff from source itself. It is however, easier to isntlal things on Gentoo than it is to install stuff on Fedora or Mandriva because it uses internet package repositories by default.

Fedora may well be best whilst you get the hang of things, because it offers some nice GUI tools to get things done, but for a serious server, you are better with a more customisable distro.

Thanks ds2k3 for your kind words..

Yes I looked into a couple, suse 10.1, but that act funny.. does constant open my CD-rom door, and just prints gibrisch on my windows 2000 adv server's printer.
looked into centOS, Debian, slackware, freeBSD.. but since im a noob and come from windows. I was kinda happy as i saw this nice kde from fedora. On Debian i just been in text console after install.. got shoked to death nerlay smile.gif

I just hate to ask over and over on different forums silly stupid newbie questions, make me fill complet silly.

But finally i got that apache.1.3.36 + mod_ssl + mysql4.1.19 + php 4.4.2 to work tongue.gif
But dont ask me how, im complet clueless. unsure.gif

I gonna install gentoo on another box and fumble around with this, see if i like it, never looked at this.

If you're scared off by Debian, Gentoo will be even worse.

I really would suggest getting debian; if you want to set up a server, you'll have to learn how to use the command line anyways.
