I want to install MySQL server 5.5 on ubuntu 10.10 and 11.10 servers but have not yet found a problem free PPA or installation method as of yet. Has anyone managed to do this with the said versions of ubuntu?

  • Been a while since this was started but I finally migrated over to using MariaDB and I must say I prefer it.
