Install MariaDB on Ubuntu 10.04 “Lucid Lynx”

The easiest way to install fresh version of MariaDB is trough the OurDelta Package. First add the repository to your system:

wget -O- http://ourdelta.org/deb/ourdelta.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget http://ourdelta.org/deb/sources/lucid-mariadb-ourdelta.list 
\ -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ourdelta.list

Afterwards, don’t forget to fetch the new lists with:

$sudo aptitude update

Then install MariaDB with :

$sudo apt-get install mariadb-server-5.1

In my case I was missing some dependencies ,so I have to run

$sudo apt-get -f install

which installed additionally mariadb-server-core-5.1 and then all the other packages.
