Comment 2 Honza Horak 2014-08-20 14:44:21 UTC
MySQL 5.5 is unfortunately not compatible with 5.1, so upgrading is not possible withing RHEL-6. MariaDB 5.5 is included in RHEL-7 then.

Howerver, MySQL 5.5, as well as MariaDB 5.5, are now available as part of Red Hat Software Collections (RHSCL) V1.0, now V1.1 is also released.  It is included as part of most RHEL subscriptions.

See http://www.redhat.com/about/news/archive/2013/6/red-hat-software-collections-1.0-beta-now-available for details.
