How to generate binary tar.gz files.

If the binaries are already built, you can generate a binary tarball with

make package

Prior to MariaDB 5.5, the following steps were required:

  • Use make_binary_distribution to generate a binary tar file:
cd mariadb-source

This creates a source file with a name like mariadb-5.3.2-MariaDB-beta-linux-x86_64.tar.gz in your current directory.

The other option is to use the bakery scripts. In this case you don't have to compile MariaDB source first.

cd bakery_{number}
bakery/ last:1 $MARIA_WORK
bakery/ mariadb-{version_num}-maria-beta-ourdelta{number}.tar.gz
