Building MariaDB 5.1 on Windows
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Recently, I found myself needing MariaDB 5.1.60 for Windows for some testing purposes. Therefore, I needed to build it from source. I ended up using what I’d call a “blend” of the commands listed in this “how-to” and the readme file INSTALL-WIN-SOURCE, so I thought I’d post those steps.

  • Download 5.1.60 MariaDB source from here.
  • cd C:\mariadb-5.1
  • win\configure.js
  • cmake .
  • VS: File -> Open -> Solution -> MySql.sln
  • VS: Build -> Build Solution
  • VS: Right-click “PACKAGE” -> Build (in “Solution Explorer” View)

    That’s it.

    Let’s fire it up:

    MariaDB> select version();

    Tracking Server Variables, Documentation, Manuals, Changelogs for MySQL, InnoDB, MariaDB, and XtraDB
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I find myself constantly looking up server variables (and manuals and changelogs) for MySQL, MariaDB, and XtraDB, which versions they are in, and so forth. So I finally created a couple pages which contain the links to all of these various bits of information across the various flavors of MySQL.

    I’ve been using them every day, so I thought some others might want to bookmark these as well.

    I’ve created the following:

    o Changelogs
    o Documentation
    o Server Variables
    o InnoDB Plugin Versions

    The Changelogs page contains links for MySQL 3.23 up through 5.6, MariaDB 5.1 – 5.3, XtraDB 5.1 – 5.5, Xtrabackup 1.3 – 1.6,

    Microseconds and MariaDB
    +11 Vote Up -1Vote Down

    Most of you are all aware of the lack of microsecond support in MySQL.

    This has been a long-standing issue:

    http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=8523

    *cringe* .. sorry, just my normal reaction after seeing that bug, err feature request, again and again over the past 6+ years ..

    However, I think many people do not realize that microseconds are supported by MariaDB in version 5.3+, which for all intensive purposes is a drop-in replacement for MySQL.

    So if you need microsecond support for MySQL, you should definitely check out MariaDB.

    “In MariaDB 5.3, the TIME, DATETIME, and TIMESTAMP types, along with the temporal functions, CAST and dynamic columns, now support microseconds. The datetime precision of a column can be specified when creating the table with CREATE TABLE”

    Also:

    MySQL Windows Users – Use Grep to Search MySQL Source Code
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    For Windows users, if you try searching the MySQL source code for various strings, you know you will often come up empty with the built-in Windows search.

    It wasn’t too long ago and I was searching the source for “MALLOC_OVERHEAD”. My Windows search came up empty, and someone suggested I try grep for Windows.

    Well, I downloaded it, extracted it to the location I wanted, and added the .exe to the $PATH.

    Now I can grep away!

    See the new results when searching for “MALLOC_OVERHEAD”:

    C:\mysql-5.5\mysql-5.5>grep -r "MALLOC_OVERHEAD" .
    ./client/mysql.cc:   (longlong) 2*1024L*1024L*1024L, MALLOC_OVERHEAD, 1024, 0},
    ./client/mysql.cc:   REQUIRED_ARG, 16384, 1024, 512*1024*1024L, MALLOC_OVERHEAD, 1024, 0},
    ./client/mysqldump.c:   (longlong) 2L*1024L*1024L*1024L, MALLOC_OVERHEAD, 1024, 0},
