Building the Galera wsrep Package on Ubuntu and Debian

The instructions on this page were used to create the galera package on the Ubuntu and Debian Linux distributions. This package contains the wsrep provider for MariaDB Galera Cluster.

MariaDB Galera Cluster starting with 5.5.35

Starting with MariaDB Galera Cluster 5.5.35, the version of the wsrep provider is 25.3.5. We also provide 25.2.9 for those that need or want it.

Prior to that, the wsrep version was 23.2.7.

  1. Install prerequisites:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get -y install check debhelper libasio-dev libboost-dev libboost-program-options-dev libssl-dev scons
  1. Clone galera.git from and checkout mariadb-3.x banch:
git init repo
cd repo
git clone -b mariadb-3.x
  1. Build the packages by executing under scripts/ directory with -p switch:
cd galera
./scripts/ -p

When finished, you will have the Debian packages for galera library and arbitrator in the parent directory.

Running galera test suite

If you want to run the galera test suite (mysql-test-run --suite=galera), you need to install the galera library as either /usr/lib/galera/ or /usr/lib64/galera/
