Ubuntu – How to upgrade MySQL to 5.5, am I best off waiting for it to be available through apt-get


How would I go about upgrading MySQL to version 5.5 on Ubuntu Server 9.10?

Would I be better off waiting for it to be an easy $ sudo apt-get install mysql-server job?

I'm also unsure as to which download I would need to get from here.
