MySQL 5.5 in openSUSE Build Service
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL 5.5 is GA for more then a month already. If you are reading some news, you probably already heard, that it is great, million times faster, has trillion new features that you desperately need and much more. Of course, I’m exaggerating a little bit. But anyway, MySQL 5.5 is new version everybody talks about. So now when do you get it? It is already lying around for some time in server:database:UNSTABLE repository. It was there since beta, but took me some time to get final version ready. Just add it to your repositories for example by:

zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/server:/database:/UNSTABLE/openSUSE_11.3 server-database-unstable

and then install it by

zypper in mysql-community-server_55

As it conflicts with whatever MySQL variant you currently have, it will ask you

There has been a lot happening in the MariaDB community recently, and there has been growth. Here are some of the highlights. Thank you to all our current contributors, and to others that want to contribute, shoot community[at]askmonty[dot]org an e-mail.

MariaDB 5.2.3 in openSUSE (Build Service)

You maybe already noticed, that MariaDB folks released their new stable version 5.2.3 today. And as we’ve got our great openSUSE Build Service, we already have this version packaged and you can install it easilly on openSUSE. I didn’t had much time to test it deeply, I just tried that it runs, and that I’m able to connect to it, so it is currently in server:database:UNSTABLE repository, but after some testing, it will proceed futher

yum install mariadb
+6 Vote Up -5Vote Down

I`m not the biggest fan of openSUSE but this weeks post by Colin Charles makes me happy ..

openSUSE users can now do a mariadb install from their default repositories.

With all the fuzz about Snoracle and MySQL's future last year to me it became clear that we would end up having different MySQL based distributions, probably with different names, and that it would be up to the Linux distributions to provide the users with what they preferred, working with those Linux distributions
therefore would be very important for the MySQL distributions.

Sadly my Fedora box doesn't allow me to do a yum install mariadb yet ... but I`m sure that's only a matter of time ..

OpenSUSE users have a choice of database now!

A big shoutout to the openSUSE team: openSUSE 11.3 has been released! And with it comes a choice for the database users out there – you can now choose between MySQL (http://mysql.com/) or MariaDB.

I wrote in February 2010 that MariaDB was in the unstable repository for openSUSE, and was informed by Michal that it would be included a little while ago. The version that is shipping is MariaDB

MySQL in openSUSE 11.3
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Original title was ‘MySQL dropped from openSUSE!!!‘. I wanted to have some shocking title, but I changed it as I don’t really want to scare you so much But it is partially true, there is no mysql package in openSUSE anymore. But of course we DID NOT really dropped MySQL. In fact, we now have more MySQL in openSUSE then we ever had! Do I got your attention? Read on

What and why?

What really happened is that I renamed original MySQL package. Now it is called mysql-community-server. If you take a look at SUN/Oracle web, they call it like this for a long time, so it makes a little sense… As a result, there is no real package called mysql in openSUSE

MySQL Version Updates
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Few weeks ago I was at FOSDEM.  It was really amazing experience. I meet many interesting people, learned quite some thing and I returned full of enthusiasm. Open Source events are really great.

But all the fun wasn’t over even after the FOSDEM. I spent few more days in Bruxelles attending MySQL packagers meeting organized by SUN/Oracle. We spent quite some time talking to each other. We learned what MySQL people are doing and how. And they learned how do we deal with MySQL and what is troubling us. And many good things will come from this.

First but certainly not last of them is about to appear now. One very interesting thing we learned at meeting was MySQL release policy. What openSUSE and Ubuntu and maybe some others are doing is that after release date there is generaly no version updates allowed. We are only fixing serious bugs

The aims of this kind of blog post is simple – I want to help keep the masses informed as to what’s happening with MariaDB, as a whole. There is a community growing, and MariaDB is a community project, not necessarily a Monty Program Ab baby (and we’re clear on this distinction: think of it like Canonical/Ubuntu). So, think of it as such that I’m sharing the good news, and summarising what’s been happening, to save you time.

One of MariaDB’s goals is that it should be easily available for download. While we provide binaries and source at

Updates in unstable repo (not only) for openSUSE
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I already mentioned this repository several times on my blog. It is the repository where I’m trying to keep bleeding edge stuff for MySQL. I’ve been updating it recently and we’ve got new package there and some interesting updates I want to mention.

MariaDB and MySQL

First thing to mention is that this repository contains MariaDB builds. MariaDB is fork of MySQL and their goals are certainly interesting. For list of differences, try upstream page. As I consider it interesting, I’m keeping eye on it Maybe our users may benefit from it.

MySQL Unstable Builds

It’s been some time already since I informed you about server: database: UNSTABLE repository in openSUSE Build Service. Today I want to mention what is going on there. As the name of the repository suggests, it’s probably not the best idea to use anything from here on your production servers

MySQL 5.4

I’m keeping there MySQL 5.4. Currently in version 5.4.3 beta. 5.4 branch of MySQL contains some patches to improve performance. That is the reason why it might be interesting. Downside is that it isn’t released as often as 5.1 and it is not considered production ready. I already

Barriers & ext4 & MySQL
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We are going to release openSUSE 11.2 soon, so I want to let you know about one problem you may expect. One of the openSUSE 11.2 features is support for ext4. Well, if you will just click on next all the time during the installation, default filesystem for your root partition will be ext4. What is the problem with that? Well, ext4 in current kernel has barriers enabled by default. It’s not a problem, it’s a feature, but it has some unpleasant side effects which you may encounter. Let’s take a closer look.

Barriers

Barriers are used to make sure that journal is really written to your filesystem and that nothing is missing. It has one big advantage – your data are safe. On the other hand it has disadvantage as well. You have to make sure that everything is written so you can’t really take full advantage of all caches and such. There is a nice article

MySQL 5.1 and openSUSE
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Some of you may already notice, that in Build Service, there are already available rpms for new MySQL 5.1. Currently I think that in openSUSE 11.2 will be some 5.1 version of MySQL. So it may be interesting to tell our users what will change and how. Most of these changes are reflected in README.SuSE, but frankly – who reads READMEs?

Changes

Plugins

One of the new features in MySQL 5.1 is support for plugins. So some of the storage engines will be now shipped like that. Following plugins will be available:

  • archive
  • blackhole
  • federated
  • example

As you can see, InnoDB will be still compiled as internal part of MySQL. If you are upgrading from version 5.0.X or if this is your first installation of MySQL 5.1, all plugins will be enabled by default and you can disable them manually later (see

+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This is a first entry on my new blog. Maybe the first statement can be just “First post!!!”, but I want to tell my potential readers why this blog was founded, what’s its purpose and what you can hopefully find here in the future.

The original reason to create this blog was to have some place where I can post my ideas about my work. I’m currently working as a package maintainer in SuSE and sometimes I’m facing some things that I think people should know about. But who reads mailing lists nowadays? If I’ll be good at blogging, I’ll be googleable and therefore these idea may actually find some audience. Well, other thing is that my first goal is to get aggregated on Planet SuSE, once this site will be finished enough.

While I was thinking about this stuff, I realized that this may be a good opportunity to create some personal pages

Setting Up A MySQL Cluster
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This article contains my notes and detailed instructions on setting up a MySQL cluster. After reading it, you should have a good understanding of what a MySQL cluster is capable of, how and why it works, and how to set one of these bad boys up. Note that I'm primarily a developer, with an interest in systems administration but I think that every developer should be able to understand and set up a MySQL cluster, at least to make the dev environment more robust.

    Notes

  • In short, a MySQL cluster allows a user to set up a MySQL database shared between a number of machines. Here are some benefits:
    • High availability. If one or some of the machines go down, the cluster will stay up, as long as there is at least one copy of all data still present. The more redundant copies of data there are, the more machines you can afford to
