I have a centos5.5 system and have MySQL 5.0.27 install. Now I want to upgrade this to MySQL 5.5.28(Latest). I have two questions,
What is the difference between RPM(Redhat) which is recommended and Generic binary tarball. Do they have performance difference, i.e. will the Specific RPM build perform better than generic tarball?
What is the process of RPM upgrade of the same.
