Installing MySQL 5 on Fedora Core 4

It seems like some people (including me) are getting this error when installing the rpm of mysql 5 on fedora 4: is needed by (installed) dovecot-0.99.11-2.EL4.1.i386

Here is how to fix it:
1. Open the package management tool and go to the mail server.
2. Uninstall dovecot.
3. Run the RPM again: rpm -Uvh MySQL-server...

Now it works!
