Debian and Ubuntu packages from Percona are signed with a key. Before using the repository, you should add the key to apt. To do that, run the following commands as root:
$ apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 1C4CBDCDCD2EFD2A
Add this to /etc/apt/sources.list, replacing VERSION with the name of your distribution:
deb http://repo.percona.com/apt VERSION main deb-src http://repo.percona.com/apt VERSION main
Remember to update the local cache:
$ apt-get update
After that you can install the server and client packages
$ apt-get install percona-server-server-5.1 percona-server-client-5.1
- x86_64 (also known as amd64)
Percona offers pre-release builds from the testing repository. To enable it add the following lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list , replacing VERSION with the name of your distribution:
deb http://repo.percona.com/apt VERSION main testing deb-src http://repo.percona.com/apt VERSION main testing
In some cases you might need to “pin” the selected packages to avoid the upgrades from the distribution repositories. You’ll need to make a new file /etc/apt/preferences.d/00percona.pref and add the following lines in it:
Package: * Pin: release o=Percona Development Team Pin-Priority: 1001
For more information about the pinning you can check the official debian wiki.
