    When I tried to install ‘mytop’ getting following error. Even I have installed required dependency – perl(Term::ReadKey)

    [root@localhost ~]# yum install mytop
    Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit, security
    Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
    * epel:
    Setting up Install Process
    Resolving Dependencies
    –> Running transaction check
    —> Package mytop.noarch 0:1.7-3.b737f60.el6 will be installed
    –> Processing Dependency: perl(Term::ReadKey) >= 2.1 for package: mytop-1.7-3.b737f60.el6.noarch
    –> Finished Dependency Resolution
    Error: Package: mytop-1.7-3.b737f60.el6.noarch (epel)
    Requires: perl(Term::ReadKey) >= 2.1
    You could try using –skip-broken to work around the problem
    You could try running: rpm -Va –nofiles –nodigest

      It seems the perl-Term-ReadKey package having issue with mytop package, better remove that package and try to yum mytop again and see..

    Thanks for the article,
    But when you run mysql_secure_installation and remove the “test” database, you cannot run mytop because of these error:
    Unknown database ‘test’

    • Ravi Saive says:

      No I don’t think ‘test’ database needed, but I think you must have one or two databases to run mytop command. Create a one or two database and try to run mytop command to see whether its working or not..
