  • Problem installing Percona Server

    hello, first time poster here, I searched for this problem, did not find any previous topics. Hope this is the right section of the forum for this question.

    I have just installed Debian 6.0.0 on my machine, and am trying to install:


    ...from a terminal window. The Percona Client stuff installed OK, but for the above package I am getting:

    dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/percona-server-server-5.1_5.1.54-12. 5-188.lenny_i386.deb (--unpack):
    trying to overwrite '/usr/share/mysql/dutch/errmsg.sys', which is also in package mysql-server-core-5.1 5.1.49-3
    configured to not write apport reports
    dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)

    I tried to chmod to 777 on the dutch dir, to no avail. When I try to install via the synaptic gui, I get a slightly different worded version of the error:

    E: /var/cache/apt/archives/percona-server-server-5.1_5.1.54-12. 5-188.lenny_i386.deb: trying to overwrite '/usr/share/mysql/dutch/errmsg.sys', which is also in package mysql-server-core-5.1 5.1.49-3

    I did not install the mysql-server-core-5.1 5.1.49-3, and if I select to uninstall it, it gives me a list of lots of things that will also be removed, including the KDE desktop. So, I didn't remove it.

    Any help would be appreciated, and apologies again if I am committing any newbie errors with this post.

    Not to worry, I sorted it out.

      It would be helpful to other readers if you could explain how?

        I used the --force parameter for dpkg and that seemed to do it
