MySQL 5.0.38 packages updated

April 6, 2007 by · 14 Comments 

I've rebuilt the MySQL 5.0.38 binaries in my yum repository to take care of a small bug that I introduced for new installs.

It seems that the database initialization script that runs on the first launch of mysqld (part of the 'mysql-server' package) has changed a bit between 5.0.37 & 5.0.38. Unfortunately, not noticing that, I tossed a couple of new .sql scripts in the wrong package. This, as it turns out, only affected users who were trying to do a clean installation of mysql. If you were upgrading from the stock EL4 version, from the 'centosplus' repo, or from one of my earlier releases then you weren't affected.

    Glad this got fixed. I was just installing some new servers this week and was puzzled as to why MySQL 5.0.38 wouldn't run after installation, so I was installing from CentOS-Plus and upgrading.

    Thanks for all the work you put in to providing these packages. Up to this point we have been using RHEL3 and I have been compiling Apache and PHP from source and using the official MySQL community RPMs when they are published. We are now moving to CentOS 4.4 and being able to have managed packages for our web server is wonderful!

    Alright then, it looks like I'll be revisiting this package again tomorrow.

  4. Jason says:

    It looks like I managed to accidentally comment out a line. In any case, this should be fixed now. Try running the update again.

  5. M. van der Klip says:

    Could you post the link to the updated source RPM? Or, even better, add the source rpm's to the Yum repository?

  6. Hans Rakers says:

    Great work! Any plans on adding RHEL5 / CentOS 5 support to the repo?

  7. Jason says:

    I've currently got a pair of test systems running in VMWare (1 32-bit & 1 64-bit) but I wasn't planning on actually building any packages for the new distro until some of the larger hosting providers start leasing servers with it installed.

  8. Hans Rakers says:

    I've tested your SRPM and it builds fine on CentOS 5.0, so there's no real need for it for now. Thanks again!

    on RHEL4 getting error :
    mysql-test-run: WARNING: Waited 60 seconds for /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/mysql-5.0.38/mysql-test/var/run/mysqld_1.pid to be created, still waiting for 340 seconds...

    ...

    then build failed :

    what could be a reason?

    Thanx.

  10. Pavel A. says:

    sorry, the issue was running under root user. should be running as non-root.

  11. Jason says:

    Yup. I believe I mentioned that in a prior post, back when I wasn't providing binary RPMs.

  12. Jacek says:

    Dear Jason,

    MySQL 5.0.40 is out at
    ftp://ftp.mysql.com/pub/mysql/src/mysql-5.0.40.tar.gz

    Could you have a look at it, please?

    Many thanks,

    Jacek

  13. Jason says:

    Another Enterprise-only release? I'll take a look at that tomorrow. Thanks for letting me know it was posted to the FTP.
