Re: Installing mysqldump


I see that you are using Thunderbird.  A lot of people do.  But why
are your messages always broken?  You never reply to the message you
are quoting and seem to be replying to but the message before it.
Strange.  And your quoting is really painful.  I am sure it is not a
problem with Thunderbird since other people use it successfully.

I had asked for the 'env COLUMNS=80 dpkg -l' so that the columns would
not go out too far and would not be hard to read.

But yours go out to column 144 so of course I know you didn't use the
command I asked you to use.  Sigh.

And the above clearly shows the problem.  I will chop it down.

  | Status=Not/Inst/Conf-files/Unpacked/halF-conf/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend
  |/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
  ||/ Name           Version        Description
  iU  mysql-server            5.5.31+dfsg-0+wheezy1
  rc  mysql-server-5.1        5.1.66-0+squeeze1
  iF  mysql-server-5.5        5.5.31+dfsg-0+wheezy1
  ii  mysql-server-core-5.5   5.5.31+dfsg-0+wheezy1

mysql-server is Unpacked but not configured.  mysql-server-5.5 install
is marked as Failed.  That is clearly bad.  You can't ignore these

I would try this first.  Needs root.

  apt-get install -f

That should rerun the configuration of the failed packages.  Since it
produced errors before it will probably produce errors again.  Post
those errors.  They need to be fixed.

After you get the new mysql server installed correctly then, and only
then, purge the previous server.  Doing so will have the side effect
of shutting down the server so it needs to be started again.  But
don't do it until you have the new server installed correctly.

  dpkg --purge mysql-server-5.1
  service mysql start
