How can I install MariaDB C Client on Fedora 17/18 or CentOS 6.* without uninstalling MySQL
I need to install only client libraries without uninstalling MySQL. How can I do it?
I tries installing from your YUM repository, but this installation conflicts with mysql-libs and mysql-server packages (from "remi" repository).
MariaDB-shared correctly conflicts with mysql-libs, because it provides same libraries. In fact, it should seamlessly replace mysql-libs and everything should continue working. Our client libraries are a superset of mysql client libraries, all clients should work as before.
But MariaDB-shared should not conflict with mysql-server.
Either way, if you want to keep mysql-libs, you can install MariaDB client libraries from the binary tarball.
