Percona apt Repository

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:

$ gpg --keyserver  hkp:// --recv-keys 1C4CBDCDCD2EFD2A
... [some output removed] ...
gpg:               imported: 1

$ gpg -a --export CD2EFD2A | sudo apt-key add -

Add this to /etc/apt/sources.list, replacing lenny with the name of your distribution:

deb lenny main
deb-src lenny main

Remember to update the local cache:

$ apt-get update
