This bug was fixed in 5.5.6 ( http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=56150 )
And now it happened on 5.6.2 m5 again

Package 'shared' have 'libmysqlclient.so' but 'shared-compat' doesn't have it
But they can't be installed together

[root@server ~]# rpm -qlp MySQL-shared-5.6.2_m5-1.rhel5.x86_64.rpm
[root@server ~]# rpm -qlp MySQL-shared-compat-5.6.2_m5-1.rhel5.x86_64.rpm

How to repeat:
Install two package together. 

Suggested fix:
Fix it just like what you have done in 5.5.6

in bug #56150. This is, indeed, a bug.

This is also a problem in 5.5.15 (since 5.5.10 I think).

the fix for bug #56150 (rightly) made the contents of these two packages able to coexist.  Some regression since then has made it not possible (from rpm's point of view) to install them together.  I suspect the .spec file for shared-compat has reverted to its previous state of "obsoleting" shared.  I can confirm that this regression has been in place since at least 5.5.11.

Noted in 5.5.22, 5.6.5 changelogs.

The contents of the shared and shared-compat RPM packages had been
changed in versions 5.5.6 and 5.6.1 to avoid the overlap which they
traditionally had (and still have in MySQL 5.0 and 5.1). However, the
RPM meta information had not been changed in accordance, and so RPM
still assumed a conflict between shared and shared-compat RPM
packages. This has been fixed.

I want to know where is the MySQL-shared-compat spec file.
Anyone can help me?
