New KB Question: CentOS 5.x/6.x mysql-lib conflicts and postfix


A new question has been posted to the Knowledgebase:

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
  Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit
  Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
   * base: mirror.averse.net
   * extras: mirror.averse.net
   * rpmforge: apt.sw.be
   * updates: mirror.averse.net

  --> Processing Dependency: mysql-libs for package:

  Error: Package: 2:postfix-2.6.6-2.1.el6_0.x86_64 (updates)
           Requires: mysql-libs
   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 ??
