Building 5.1.38-maria packages

We’ve been able to do MySQL 5.1 binary tarballs for a bit now (great working together with Kristian Nielsen of Monty Program), but packages are bit more tricky. Peter has been working on Debian/Ubuntu while I’ve focused on RH/CentOS. The following is from an OurDelta (trial build run) RPM install on CentOS 5 x64:

$ mysql -u root
Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.

Server version: 5.1.38-maria-beta1-ourdelta (OurDelta -

mysql> CREATE TABLE test.t1 (i int) ENGINE=PBXT;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.10 sec)

mysql> SHOW CREATE TABLE test.t1\G

mysql> SELECT * FROM test.t1;

1 row in set (0.00 sec)

So yes, PBXT is fully in there, as is XtraDB (the enhanced InnoDB plugin).

mysql> SHOW GLOBAL VARIABLES LIKE 'innodb_version';

    Why didn’t have freebsd,MacOSX build?

    Hi fire9.
    OSX tends to not be a production platform, and FreeBSD is relatively rare for production also these days. Both are relatively easily built from source anyway.
    If you are interested in packages for either, please feel free to help with the scripts and other things needed for those builds!
    Simply join the ourdelta project on Launchpad.
