Howto enable compat RPM when compiling MariaDB 5.5.x
Posted on August 1, 2012
If you are compiling MariaDB yourself and you need the compat RPM, you need to download the latest MariaDB-shared-5.3 RPM from http://downloads.mariadb.org/MariaDB/5.3.7/
Place the file OUTSIDE of you source directory.
mariadb-5.5.25 (source directory) mariadb-5.5.25.tar.gz MariaDB-shared-5.3.7-116.el5.x86_64.rpm
