One who is trying to install MDBGC using our Repository doesn't install it because it fails, due to socat dependency, and because socat is not provided in the version I tested (Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.6)
If I want to use MDBGC with this OS, I can't, unless I download manually the package
The socat application is not necessary to operate MariaDB Galera Cluster. It is necessary only if you use the optionnal xtrabackup-v2 transfer method
Socat is a dependecy of the percona-xtrabackup package, that one still needs to install manually.
Solutions I see are:
- we put socat in the mariadb repo.
- we install xtrabackup as dependency. At least we fail for something.
- we remove socat dependency.
Thanks in advance,
