Test installation of MariaDB-Galera RPM packages from buildbot using yum

Ноябрь 30th, 2012 | Posted by elenst in Pensieve | Testing - (Комментарии отключены)

Buildbot only builds MariaDB-Galera-X.Y.Z-system-arch-server packages, and the rest is supposed to be taken from the standard repositories. In real life the package will live in the same repository, so everything should work smoothly. But I need to test it before it got there…

- start a nice clean VM, preferably with the standard MariaDB repository already configured, but if not, then add
/etc/yum.repos.d/MariaDB.repo with the contents like

# MariaDB 5.5 repository list - created 2012-11-29 22:41 UTC
# http://downloads.mariadb.org/mariadb/repositories/
name = MariaDB
baseurl = http://yum.mariadb.org/5.5/centos5-amd64

or take the right link in the repository tool;

- download MariaDB-Galera-X.Y.Z-system-arch-server.rpm from the buildbot archive;

- run under root or sudo
yum install ./MariaDB-Galera-X.Y.Z-system-arch-server.rpm --nogpgcheck

If it works, also run

sudo yum install MariaDB-client

The server should start as is, but won’t be a real cluster node (as of 5.5.28 at least), because it is not pre-configured. Add Galera-related options to /etc/my.cnf file, e.g.


/etc/init.d/mysql start

and pray to your tester’s supersomething.
