MySQL 5.7 is now GA

I noticed a retweet by Giuseppe Maxia about MySQL 5.7 being generally available now.

You can get the community download here, but more importantly the main yum repository page has the 5.7 repo as GA. Happy days!

I guess I know what I’m doing when I get home…

Cheers

Oracle Linux 5 Update 7 Available…

Over the weekend Oracle Linux 5.7 was released, as noted here.

Upgrades follow the normal path. Do one of the following:

  • Boot from the DVD and upgrade that way.
  • Replace the “/etc/yum.repos.d/public-yum-el5.repo” file with the new version here, remembering to enable the appropriate entries.
  • Amend your existing “/etc/yum.repos.d/public-yum-el5.repo”, adding the following new entry.
    [ol5_u7_base]
    name=Oracle Linux $releasever - U7 - $basearch - base
    baseurl=http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL5/7/base/$basearch/
    gpgkey=http://public-yum.oracle.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle-el5
    gpgcheck=1
    enabled=1

If you picked either of the last two options, you can upgrade by issuing the “yum update” command when logged in as root.

I’ve upgraded a couple of VMs running Oracle and everything seems fine so far.

Cheers
