TarBall Release Builds: EL7 versus Generic

(Doc ID 2361179.1)

Last updated on MARCH 16, 2018

Applies to:

MySQL Server - Version 5.7 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Additional to the generic TAR build for 5.7.21, e.g., mysql-advanced-5.7.21-linux-glibc2.12-x86_64, there is now also a EL7 TAR build, mysql-advanced-5.7.21-el7-x86_64.

The goal of this note is to explain the reasoning and difference.
