CentOS 5.x/6.x mysql-lib conflicts and postfix

On a fresh CentOS 5.x/6.x 32bit or 64bit install, mysql 5.0.xx is installed. To install MariaDB 5.2.x rpms, mysql-lib needs to be removed for MariaDB-server to be installed.

But removing mysql-lib via yum remove, removes postfix.

If later you need to install postfix via yum it still requires mysql-lib, but installing mysql-lib installs mysql 5.0.x server again.

yum install postfix

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Anyway to properly resolve this ? with MariaDB 5.2/5.3.x version of mysql-lib ??

This is CentOS 6 specific issue. And it is fixed in MariaDB 5.5 branch.
