MariaDB 10.0 reference card: plugins in packages
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MariaDB 10.0 comes with ~50 engines and plugins; and it comes in 35 package sets (34 binary ones and a source tarball).

Every day people come asking on #maria IRC whether a package X contains an engine Y, or saying that it doesn’t, or wondering if it should. Remembering all combinations isn’t easy, and it became impractical to study build logs or package contents every time, so I ended up with a cheat sheet for 10.0.10 GA. At the very least it should help me to answer those questions; even better if somebody else finds it useful.

The tables below refer to contents of packages provided at downloads.mariadb.org or at MariaDB repository mirrors. Packages built by distributions might have different contents and are not covered here.

— built-in (also known as static):
the plugin comes as a part of the server binary. It

MySQL RPMS and the new yum repository
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I was really pleased to see the announcement by Oracle MySQL yum repositories that they have now produced a yum repository from where the MySQL RPMs they provide can be downloaded. This makes keeping up to date much easier. Many companies setup internal yum repositories with the software they need as then updating servers is much easier and can be done with a simple command. For many people at home that means you set this up once and don’t need to check for updates and do manual downloads, but can do a quick yum update xxxx and you get the latest version. Great!  This new yum repository only covers RHEL6 did not include RHEL5 which is not yet end of life and still used by me and probably quite a lot of other people. I filed

On operating system upgrades and a packager’s nightmare
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A fairy tale

Once upon a time I did an operating system upgrade, a minor one that should do no harm, but just get me up to date by fixing any bugs in the version I had been using. It seemed like a good idea.

All seemed to be fine. I use a package provided by an external vendor and not the one produced by the operating system provider as this vendor provides a newer version of the package and I need that. The vendor has to make his package fit in the os environment his package is built for and normally does a pretty good job.

I use automation to build my systems and when I built a new one some issues appeared. Related to the new version of the OS the provider had enhanced one of his packages and the installation pulled in new dependencies. The install of the external package I use then broke as it conflicted with the new dependency

Welcome Tungsten Replicator 2.1.0!
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Overview


First off, the important news. Tungsten Replicator 2.1.0 was released today.
You can download it and give it a try right now.


Second, I would say that I am quite surprised at how much we have done in this release. The previous release (2.0.7) was in February, which is just a few months ago, and yet it looks like ages when I see the list of improvements, new features and bug fixes in the Release Notes. I did not realized it until I ran my last batch of checks to test the upgrade from the previous release, which I hadn’t run for quite a long

Packages to get MariaDB and tests up and running
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

yum

It’s often pain to guess package names when you need to install stuff on, lets say, CentOS. So there is a list, although maybe not full, of what I needed to get another VM build and run MariaDB server and to execute at least some tests on it (all done via yum install):

cmake
gcc
ncurses-devel
bison
g++
gcc-c++
aclocal
automake
libtool
perl-DBD-MySQL
gdb
libaio-devel
openssl-devel

Same in one line, for lazy me:
sudo yum install cmake gcc ncurses-devel bison g++ gcc-c++ aclocal automake libtool perl-DBD-MySQL gdb libaio-devel openssl-devel

To install bzr:

su -c ‘rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-2.noarch.rpm’
(check the architecture)

and then can use yum

MySQL and Packaging
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down
The MySQL Server from Oracle comes in a two different flavours: Community Edition and Enterprise Edition. The first one is under the GPLv2 license and the later is under the GPLv2 or Commercial license.

The Enterprise Edition was always available from https://enterprise.mysql.com (which now has an expired SSL certificate) under the GPLv2 license. This download page was restricted to paying customers. Since the Enterprise downloads were moved to https://edelivery.oracle.com the downloads are available for everyone (as long as it's not restricted by export regulations and accept the trial license agreement). The license is now 'Commercial'. The download be named V24071-01.zip or something like that, which is annoying. The latest version for the Enterprise release on edelivery is 5.5.8 while the latest Community version is 5.5.11.

libdrizzle in Visual Studio
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Thanks to Jobin's work with mingw and getting libdrizzle to compile on Windows at all, I have been able to get it working in Visual Studio natively. The code is in trunk now.

The approach I took, which is how I'm going to approach Windows and Visual Studio for all of our stuff, is to not worry with analogues to things like configure on Windows. Windows is a very different platform from Linux, and there is no need to attempt to duplicate Linux process there. To that end, the goal at least for now will be static VS Solution files and a set of instructions of how to get depends installed so that the Solution can find them. 

I'm excited to start poking at Garrett Serack's CoApp Project, which has some tools do do tracing of things like make to help with the

How to get your product bundled with Linux distributions
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I recently received a question from Robin Schumacher at Calpont, the makers of the InfiniDB analytics database engine for MySQL: "How would you recommend we try and get bundled in with the various Linux distros?"

Since this question has come up several times before, I thought it might make sense to blog about my take on this.

First of all, please note that there is a difference between "being part of the core distribution" and "being available from a distributor's package repository". The latter one is relatively easy, the former can be hard, as you need to convince the distributor that your application is worth devoting engineering resources to maintain and support your application as part of their product. It's also a space

Building MySQL Server with CMake on Linux/Unix
Employee +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

CMake is a cross-platform, open-source build system, maintained by Kitware, Inc.

From the CMake.org home page:

CMake is a family of tools designed to build, test and package software. CMake is used to control the software compilation process using simple platform and compiler independent configuration files. CMake generates native makefiles and workspaces that can be used in the compiler environment of your choice.

It has been used for building the MySQL Server on Windows since MySQL 5.0 – the initial CMake build support was added in August 2006.

Linux MySQL distros meeting in Brussels
+6 Vote Up -1Vote Down
When I saw Shlomi's post on why not to use apt-get or yum for MySQL, I thought immediately that his conclusions are quite reasonable. What you get from the Linux distributions is not the same thing that you find in the official MySQL downloads page. Now, whether you value more the completeness of the server or the ease of administration through the distribution installation tools, it's up to you and your business goals. We at the MySQL team have organized a meeting with the Linux distributions with the intent of finding out which differences and problems we may have with each other, and to solve them by improving communication. What follows is a summary of what happened in Brussels during the meeting.
