Solved check_mysql_health wants wrong mysql client version

Hi all,

I want to install this package :
but it needs a dependency :
despite a more recent version of this dependency is already installed, configured, working :

How can I deal with it :confused: ?

I'm basically looking for a way to manually ignoring some dependencies (to install it without the old 5.6 MySQL dependency, and I hope it will work with the installed 5.7 one)

root@zorglub:~ # pkg install -Fin check_mysql_health

Packages have set dependencies. If you want to deviate from the default you'll have to build from ports.
