xampp is installed and working fine. from tar 1.8.0 phpMyAdmin 4.4.3
But i had a mysql already installed in /usr/bin/mysql
First one the original -
mysql Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.5.43, for debian-linux-gnu (x86_64) using readline 6.2
Second one from xampp.
/opt/lampp/bin/mysql -u root -V
/opt/lampp/bin/mysql Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.6.24, for Linux (x86_64) using EditLine wrapper
Can I safely eliminate the first one? is there some dependency here.
I can go into the package manager and find mysql and eliminate the first one safely?
