I just installed MySQL-server and all of its dependecies, anong other neccessities. But when it went to configure mysql-server it failed to do so, and spit out an error. Which error is not relevant here as I managed to locate the problem as a drpendency issue between mysql-server and mysql-common. Mysql-common needs to be removed.
But when i go to
apt-get purge remove mysql-common
It automatically wants to remove everything in association with it as well, including all mysql dependencies, even apache2 and php5..
So what arguement needs to be added to apt-get command to uninstall ONLY ONE package, yet leave all others intact.
Thanks for your time folks.
