Linux: uninstalling MySQL by manual file deletion
I am trying to uninstall mysql from my linux machine (mandrake 10. )
the rpm file refused to reinstall mysql on the existing version.
Can anyone tell me me how to reinstall MySQL on the existing installation (same version) OR what all files to delete (so as to manually uninstall the software)?
1)...I tried grep to find all files but has some problem on my machine.
2) I have deleted /usr/local/mysql , then all the symbolic links, mysql files in the bin directory, but still unable to re-install it.
Any help would be appreciated!
