Upgrading to MySQL 5.0.42 on RHEL and CentOS
The source package for the Enterprise release of MySQL 5.0.42 has been available on their FTP for quite some time now. Unfortunately, they left the release notes page at "Not yet released" until just recently so I've been kind of hesitant to actually build and release binary packages. That said, the release notes have been updated (to show a release date of 3 weeks ago) and I'm now making that version available to all those without an Enterprise subscription.
To the users of my repository, you know what to do. If you aren't an existing user, you can either click the "Yum Repository" link at the top of the page, or download the src.rpm at the bottom of this post and rebuild the binaries yourself. If you choose the latter, remember that MySQL cannot be built as 'root'.
