How-To: Upgrade to MySQL 5.0.38 w/ RPMs on RHEL/CentOS 4

Well, MySQL has [url=http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/releasenotes-es-5-0-38.html]released another Enterprise-only version[/url]. Not only are there no binary packages for the community, but they haven’t even bothered to post a link to the source on the download page. Why they do this, I don’t know, because it would really only take another 15 seconds to update the link to the source package on the community release page. As it stands, in order for someone to find out about this release they’d either have to be crawling the MySQL FTP site or watching the Enterprise edition release logs.

In any case, not to be left behind just because I “can’t afford”/”refuse to pay” $600 (minimum) per server, I have once again built packages to provide a community release of the newest stable version of MySQL.
