I am setting up a centos6.4 VM using Vagrant and Puppet. First off, my familiarity is with Debian linux and also I am new to Puppet, so sorry if I am missing something basic...

I am using the mysql module from puppetlabs, and the default version of mysql installed is 5.1 but I'd like to install 5.5.

From this post, it looks like I need to grab mysql5.5 from some extra repos,

My Puppetfile looks like:

forge ""
mod 'puppetlabs/stdlib'
mod 'puppetlabs/apache'
mod 'puppetlabs/mysql'

I added a yumrepo ... (more)

You'll need to install a 5.5 Mysql-shared-compat library first. See this URL for more details.

side note: Personally I'd pull the RPMs directly from and put them in my local repo rather than add an additional repo particularly one that isn't Mysql specific. Also you might consider going to Mysql 5.6 which has been GA for six months.
