Good day all. I have an ubuntu 10.04 Desktop build with mysql installed. I want to upgrade the Ubuntu and install a few extra bits of software but everytime I do, apt-get tries to update the MYSQL. I understand this but currently this is the last thing we wish to do. Is there a way to upgrade or install software without it trying to update MYSQL also. FYI MYSQL has several million files that it tries to chown and it just locks the system out.
I understand you will have concerns and ask about the current MYSQL install. We are working on sorting the MYSQL in a future build but I currently need to install some software quickly and without MYSQL gettig invloved.
