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
name = MariaDB
baseurl = http://yum.mariadb.org/5.5/centos5-amd64
or take the right link in the repository tool;
MariaDB-Galera-X.Y.Z-system-arch-server.rpm from the buildbot archive;
- run under
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.
and pray to your tester’s supersomething.
