Re: MariaDB for OpenSuSE 12.3


Hi, Peter!

We've recently started building on SuSE:

This is a new builder and we haven't made any releases of these
binaries yet, as far as I remember.

Still the source code is the same, so it is as stable as any other 10.0
build. But the packaging - like dependencies or conflicts - might be not
completely polished yet.

So, if you'd like, you can try our suse rpms that were built on opensuse,
as above.
