This question already has an answer here:
On my Ubuntu 11.10 (64bit) I has installed MySql server 5.1 which installs automatically, from synaptic. For some reason I find that I need upgrade to version 5.6 but I can't find .deb file for do that. So, I download few .rpm files from Oracle which sholuld be that version.
Files are: MySQL-client-5.6.4_m7-1.linux2.6.x86_64.rpm MySQL-devel-5.6.4_m7-1.linux2.6.x86_64.rpm MySQL-embedded-5.6.4_m7-1.linux2.6.x86_64.rpm MySQL-server-5.6.4_m7-1.linux2.6.x86_64.rpm MySQL-shared-5.6.4_m7-1.linux2.6.x86_64.rpm MySQL-test-5.6.4_m7-1.linux2.6.x86_64.rpm
Those files are on my desktop. I tried to install but inpropper so now my old MySql also dont work :)
I would like to get step by step help for dummies :) to properly install/reinstall those new packages and get MySql to work again if someone want to help.
