Upgrading to MySQL 5.0.40 on RHEL and CentOS
Another month brings another Enterprise-only release of the MySQL database server under the "Monthly Rapid Update" program. As with the last few Enterprise releases, I've built RHEL-style 32- & 64-bit binary packages for all of the community users out there so that they can keep their systems up-to-date.
The spec file is unmodified from my release of 5.0.38 but the source has been updated to 5.0.40. If you would like to download the src.rpm to compile yourself or simply to look and see what I've done, feel free to use the link at the bottom of this post.
If you are a user of my yum repository then you can simply run "yum update" and your system will download this release. If not, I would suggest that you check out the link titled "Yum Repository" at the top of the page as it can really make updating your system a LOT easier. Have fun!
