It started with Brian Evans’ github repository, some good instructions on the mailing list for Building MariaDB on Gentoo, to a request for packaging, and guess what? Its now officially in Gentoo! Thanks Brian, and Robin Johnson!
SPARC builds – Debian, Solaris
Mark has now got a MariaDB category on his blog and the interesting things for you to grab are: 5.1.42 binaries for Debian Linux/SPARC and 5.1.42 binaries for Solaris 10/SPARC. Soon, you will see 5.1.44 binaries. Thanks a lot Mark!
