How to install MariaDB on CentOS 5.5

First thing I want to try on CentOS 5.5 is mariadb. Fortunately mariadb available in binary for CentOS and don’t force me to install from source like I do with FreeBSD since its not available yet on FreeBSD ports.

I’m going to install mariadb 5.23 and make it as learning media :-)

Here the steps :

Download mariadb rpm file

Get all rpm file (client and server) from osuosl mirror.

# ls

MariaDB-client-5.2.3-87.el5.i386.rpm  MariaDB-server-5.2.3-87.el5.i386.rpm

Install the files

# rpm -i MariaDB-*

error: Failed dependencies:
