Bug Description

The information in is not complete, it's missing a repo file definition.
Taking CentOS 5 as an example, a .repo file would look something like this:

name=Ourdelta MariaDB

The trick is in the baseurl. There's currently a few options:
These seem to have ourdelta mysql 5.0.87 in them (fine, but would be nice if the correct .repo file was available without having to figure it out manually)
This is a repo that has just the mysql repo and gpg keys in it. When you install that repo though, there are no packages in it that can be installed. Seems outdated.
These seem to have two versions of MariaDB in them:
* MariaDB-OurDelta-<XXX>.x86_64 5.1.42, and
* MariaDB-<XXX>.x86_64 5.1.39

There's 2 main problems here:
1) The newest version of MariaDB is 5.1.50 according to
2) When you try to install the 5.1.42 version, it tells you that the 5.1.39 version is newer and will be used instead. 5.1.39 was a beta though (

Package MariaDB-client is obsoleted by MariaDB-OurDelta-client, trying to install MariaDB-OurDelta-client-5.1.39-67.el5.i386 instead

That pretty much leaves me with no viable yum-controlled option for MySQL/MariaDB 5.1

Then, there is also no rpms for MariaDB 5.2.2, which are in gamma right now.

Additionally, there need to be repodata/repomd.xml files for each architecture.

Yep the basic repo issues are known and we're sorting them out in close cooperation with Kristian Nielsen at Monty Program.

There will be separate repos for each major rev (5.0, 5.1, 5.2) as previous explorations have shown that the dependencies get too awkward otherwise sometimes causing yum to downgrade rather than upgrade.
However, beyond this, if the new repos do show some dependency issues (such as indicated by some of the comment items above), please file separate bugs for those as it'll have to be fixed in the packaging - which is part OurDelta, part Maria project (you can file it under BOTH so it gets tracked properly).

Changed in ourdelta:
importance: Undecided → Medium
status: New → In Progress
assignee: nobody → Open Query core (openquery-core)
