The first time I have attempted this was in the previous release of Ubuntu,
o I am not totally sure of what version number was available.

At least two of the most recent trys were with 11.10 oneiric... the servers
had mysql 5.1.58-1ubuntu1 and now are running
mariadb 5.2.10-mariadb107~oneiric

I have got those binaries from their official repository: oneiric/main i386

I also use their libraries for apache and rails (the framework that runs on
these servers)
