Description of problem:
Cannot install mysql because of circular references of needing perl(CGI)
and perl-DBD-mysql which need libmysqlclient.so.10 which is in the mysql rpm. 
Did someone really try to install this package after a basic install. Or is this
an APRIL FOOLS joke that I don't get.
to test take cd 2 and install mysql from the rpm packages on a machine with a
basic install.



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mysql-3.23.54a-11

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.use RedHat 9 cd #2
2.rpm -Uvh mysql*
3.solve dependancies without using anything not on the cd.
    

Actual Results:  Packages will NOT install

Expected Results:  It should install it always has in the past

If you are using command line rpm, you have to install the dependent packages.
That said, all packages that mysql* is dependent on are on disc2.

Here's the output from an rpm install on a clean system.  As you state, there
are failed dependencies which you have to resolve.  This sequence of commands
was issued using only disc2 of the distro.

[root@tower RPMS]# rpm -Uvh mysql*
error: Failed dependencies:
        perl(DBI) is needed by mysql-3.23.54a-11
        perl-DBD-MySQL is needed by mysql-3.23.54a-11
        perl-DBI is needed by mysql-3.23.54a-11
    Suggested resolutions:
        perl-DBD-MySQL-2.1021-3.i386.rpm
        perl-DBI-1.32-5.i386.rpm

[root@tower RPMS]# rpm -Uvh mysql* perl-DBI* perl-DBD-MySQL*

Is there something I am missing in your complaint?

My output is a little different than yours because I installed rpmdb-redhat-9.
It's helpful when trying to track down failed dependencies.
