.. so you'll have to install the -devel rpm with the new mysql headers
(I think that's the one) and then compile the other apps, or use the
.src.rpms for those apps and create your own versions.
It's pretty much an all-or-nothing situation, either you update mysql
and all other apps (php etc) or you can't upgrade any of them. Not
specifically a mysql issue, you'll get the same with any database or
