Announcing release of MariaDB 10.1 on CentOSLinux 6 x86_64 SCL
I am pleased to announce the immediate availability of MariaDB in
version 10.1 on CentOS Linux 6 x86_64, delivered via a Software
Collection (SCL) built by the SCLo Special Interest Group
You can get started in three easy steps:
$ sudo yum install centos-release-scl
$ sudo yum install rh-mariadb101
$ scl enable rh-mariadb101 bash
At this point you should be able to use mariadb just as a normal
application. Here are some examples of commands you can run:
$ service rh-mariadb101-mariadb start
In order to view the individual components included in this collection,
you can run:
$ sudo yum list rh-mariadb101*
For more on MariaDB in general, see https://mariadb.org.
About Software Collections
Software Collections give you the power to build, install, and use
multiple versions of software on the same system, without affecting
system-wide installed packages. Each collection is delivered as a group
of RPMs, with the grouping being done using the name of the collection
as a prefix of all packages that are part of the software collection.
The SCLo SIG in CentOS
The Software Collections SIG group is an open community group
co-ordinating the development of the SCL technology, and helping curate
a reference set of collections. In addition to the collection MariaDB
being released here, we also build and deliver databases, web servers,
and language stacks including multiple versions of PostgreSQL, MongoDB,
Apache HTTP Server, NodeJS, Python and others.

get involved and help with the effort.
