upgrading a manual installed rpm with yum
I am going to upgrade a server that is running Fedora Core 1 to Fedora Core 5.
All the packages installed on FC 1 are done through yum except the mysql install.
I do not expect to many issues with upgrading the OS, which is the first part of the process, and that everything keeps on working.
I also want to upgrade mysql 4.0.20 to the latest version. The mysql install was done manually from rpm. Yum updates the server every night but does not update the manually installed rpm.
I want yum to update absolutely everything, including mysql. Is there a way of upgrading a manual installed rpm with yum from now on?
I could delete the 4.0.20 install and do a yum install for mysql5 and restore database but time is money so looking for the easy way out :-)
