Percona toolkit installation issue related to perl-DBD-MySQL

Trying to install the Percona Toolkit version 1.0.1 using the rpm package as follows:

rpm -i percona-toolkit-1.0.1-1.noarch.rpm

Running the above produces this error:

error: Failed dependencies:
perl(DBD::mysql) >= 1.0 is needed by percona-toolkit-1.0.1-1.noarch

Running yum install perl-DBD-MySQL produces these errors:

mysql-5.0.77-4.el5_6.6.x86_64 from base has depsolving problems
–> mysql conflicts with Percona-Server-client-55
Error: mysql conflicts with Percona-Server-client-55

What is the best method to resolve this issue?


Solved the issue by running:

yum install Percona-Server-shared-compat

this installed the missing libraries.

This is a good reference (got me thinking in the right direction):
