MariaDB 5.2 repository for RHEL/CentOS

Until now, MariaDB 5.2 was lacking a yum repository for easy installs and upgrades. It is now available, thanks to OurDelta.

Just follow our very simple installation instructions.

MariaDB 5.1.39 for Debian, Ubuntu, RHEL/CentOS

You can now yum (RPM) or apt-get (DEB) MariaDB 5.1.39, courtesy of OurDelta and in close cooperation with Monty Program Ab. Simply follow the info on the CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu pages.

(note: give the mirrors some hours to sync up)

Quick overview

  • See the Release Notes for relevant bugfixes.
  • Drop-in replacement for stock MySQL 5.0 or 5.1 (If you’re coming from stock MySQL, see the MariaDB extras/differences overview).
  • If you are upgrading from 5.0, please review the upgrade information first before diving in.
  • The packages take care of backward compatibility with the older .so.15 client library (5.1 has .so.16), including on CentOS 5 (no separate “compat” RPM required).
  • This release for the first time also has packages (in YUM repo) for RHEL/CentOS 5. The MariaDB RPMs should purposely conflict with any 5.0, as well as any 5.1 of different origin, so that you consciously have to choose to upgrade and won’t accidentally end up for instance automatically upgrading from 5.0 to 5.1. We say should because while we tested various scenarios, the real world is bound to teach us more. Just be cautious, and please file bugs if you spot anything weird.
  • We didn’t build RHEL/CentOS 4 RPMs, because it originally came with MySQL 4.1 which is ancient, this means that other packages on that system have a dependency on If you do have a need for RHEL 4 packages, please let us know.
  • Generic Linux binary tarballs and the base source tarball to create all builds are also available, although to recreate one of the packages it’s easiest to use the relevant source package.

Please enjoy, and if you encounter any problems, file bugs with OurDelta or MariaDB on Launchpad.

MySQL 5.0.87-d10 OurDelta packages

MySQL 5.0.87-d10 OurDelta builds are now available (32 and 64-bit):

Apart from the 5.0.87 upstream fixes there were a few minor fixes in the build environment, and one updated Percona patch. The -sail builds now include the OQGRAPH engine.
Source packages are with the respective distro repos, and there are base source tarballs – we apply our patchset only once, so the build on all platforms works from exactly the same baseline.
If you have any questions, requests, comments, or find a bug, please see the OurDelta contact page for the appropriate link.

Building 5.1.38-maria packages

We’ve been able to do MySQL 5.1 binary tarballs for a bit now (great working together with Kristian Nielsen of Monty Program), but packages are bit more tricky. Peter has been working on Debian/Ubuntu while I’ve focused on RH/CentOS. The following is from an OurDelta (trial build run) RPM install on CentOS 5 x64:

$ mysql -u root
Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 1

mysql> CREATE TABLE test.t1 (i int) ENGINE=PBXT;

So yes, PBXT is fully in there, as is XtraDB (the enhanced InnoDB plugin).
