3.4 MySQL Community Packages

MySQL Community packages are not included on the provided ISO in this release. This change ensures that the ISO size is appropriate for use on typical DVD-ROM media. The MySQL Community 8.0, MySQL Community 5.7, MySQL Community 5.6, and MySQL Community 5.5 packages continue to be available on the Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN) and the Oracle Linux yum server.

You can install MySQL Community packages directly from ULN or the Oracle Linux yum server by enabling the appropriate channel or repository. For example, if you are using the Oracle Linux yum server you can enable the ol7_MySQL57 repository by installing the mysql-release-el7 package to obtain the correct yum repository configuration and then running yum-config-manager to update the configuration:

# yum install mysql-release-el7
# yum-config-manager --enable ol7_MySQL57
