mysql update on a Redhat 6 server / repository

I need to install mysql 5.5 on a rhel 6 server. I have this version installed:

mysql                                  x86_64                                  5.1.73-5.el6_6  

How do I add a repository that would make sure all the dependencies are updated, so I can just run:

yum update mysql

(I think I'm wanting this version of mysql: mysql-5.6.13-1.ram0.98.x86_64.rpm )

OK. I have a couple of questions. Can I add this repo?

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-yum-repo-quick-guide/en/

What's the difference in the redhat channel collections and the mysql repo?

initially I downloaded a mysql version with "ram" in the name.
mysql-5.6.13-1.ram0.98.x86_64.rpm

What does "ram"  mean in this context?

Thanks for any info.
no clue what RAM means. Install paid-up supported Red Hat version.

Paid subscription to redhat support, sounds the safest way to go. But I'd still like to know why

...wouldn't work just as well.

Thanks
that is for those with centos and wiling to go through torture. Oracle Linux and Red Hat Linux has good mysql versions pre-packaged for you.
