Testing and Experimental Repositories on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS

Percona offers pre-release builds from the testing repo, and early-stage development builds from the experimental repo. You can enable either one in the Percona repository configuration file /etc/yum.repos.d/percona-release.repo. There are three sections in this file, for configuring corresponding repositories:

  • stable release
  • testing
  • experimental

The latter two repositories are disabled by default.

If you want to install the latest testing builds, set enabled=1 for the following entries:

[percona-testing-$basearch]
[percona-testing-noarch]

If you want to install the latest experimental builds, set enabled=1 for the following entries:

[percona-experimental-$basearch]
[percona-experimental-noarch]
