Been meaning to do this for a while. Of course, after I did this, the DB broke. And then I had to fix that.
Ok, the DB itself didn’t break, but the install of it did. Long story, not worth telling.
Punchline: with some RPM and yum commands, I eradicated the evil bits and allowed the good bits to prevail.
Yeah, I know, I should just virtualize the box and run it where-ever. When I have time.
