Upgrading to MySQL 5.0.37 on RHEL and CentOS
Well, I'm back again with yet another release of MySQL. Coming only a few short days after the Enterprise release of 5.0.36 under the Monthly Rapid Update program, MySQL has decided to release 5.0.37 as a community edition.
As with my last release, this one is based on the latest Fedora src.rpm from the development tree and has been modified to use the newest source package, package new files that didn't exist before, remove patches that have been integrated into the main code-base, and, as a first for me, to add a patch to reverse part of a recent commit that breaks regression testing.
The end of last month a change was pushed into the public 5.0 repository that changed the expected result set for the "information_schema" test. Now, I've been looking pretty hard, but I have yet to find where the test input was changed in order to support this new expected result. As a consequence, this package includes a patch to undo part of that commit so that the package can be built.
In any case, aside from that patch, the only other changes between my last release of 5.0.36 and this release of 5.0.37 was the inclusion of 19 man pages that appeared in the build tree.
As always, I've provided the src.rpm below, as well as binary packages for i386. If someone would like to use the src.rpm to create 64-bit packages, let me know and I can host them for you if you'd like.
Update (9/24/2009): Packages deleted, use the yum repository instead.
