Following the availability of
MySQL 5.5 on Oracle Linux 6 with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, MySQL 5.5
is now also available on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 (RHEL 6) and Oracle Linux 6
with the Red Hat compatible kernel.

MySQL users can download MySQL 5.5

    Will MySQL 5.5 also be available via YUM (or APT)?

    Is there new support for RHEL6 that wasn't available for earlier releases of MySQL 5.5? The MySQL 5.5.22 "Red Hat/Oracle Enterprise Linux ver. 6" packages look like the same MySQL 5.5 "el6" packages that have been available for a long time. Is there something new available now that was not present in previous releases?
