I was going to ask the same question but notice that the package names
are actually different.  It looks like the packaging of the rpm's may
have changed between mysql v3 and v4 that he is heading towards.  Notice
that the "new" files are trying to be installed from a package named
mysqlclient10 versus the old packaging that had them as part of
mysql....  So while the base version of each is eerily identical
3.23.58, the extraversion on the mysqlclient10 is a smaller number (4)
versus the older packaging that had the larger number (14).  But the
error is actually a complaint of a conflict between package names not
versions.

Of course, this apparent packaging change is why I suggested that he use
rpm -Uvh earlier rather than the other suggestion of using rpm -Fvh.  I
am assuming that he may not have a package named mysqlclient10 currently
installed and hence the F would not install it....

Of course, I don't use mysql so could be talking out my proverbial...
oops, need to keep it G rated... :-)
