Egads man! BAD USER! Using --nodeps is going to cause you a world of trouble.

Okay. At some point you installed mysql rpms from mysql.com. These are
named differently due to capitalization. Because they're named
differently, but provide the same files, they conflict. You need to
remove all the MySQL packages you have installed. Then you're free to
use THE PACKAGE MANAGER, yum, to install mysql from centosplus.
