View Full Version : MySQL 5 on Breezy

24th August 2006, 19:41

I'm new to Ubuntu (used to Gentoo) and I am searching for the correct way to install newer packages than provided by the installed release of Ubuntu.

I need to install MySQL 5 on Ubuntu 5.10.
(I can NOT upgrade to Dapper, because the Server doesn't boot after upgrading to Dapper. Suggestions welcome, but thats not the topic here.)

Of course I can download the deb-files from mysql.com or from http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/m/mysql-dfsg-5.0/ but what about the various dependencies? Do I have to manually download each dependend package?
