ZFS: could have been the future of UNIX Filesystems
+5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There was a point a few years ago where Sun could have had the next generation UNIX filesystem. It was in Solaris (and people were excited), there was a port to MacOS X (that was quite exciting for people) and there was a couple of ways to run it on linux (and people were excited). So… instead of the fractured landscape of ext3, HFS+ and (the various variations of) UFS we could have had one file system that was common between all of the commonly used UNIX-like variants. Think of being able to use a file system on a removable drive that isn’t FAT and being able to take it from machine to machine (well… Windows would be a problem, but it always is).

There was some really great work done in OpenSolaris with integration between the

Mac OS X users can install MariaDB via Homebrew
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The gist of it is, if you’ve installed Mac OS X and you use Homebrew, you’ll be pleased to note that you’re just a brew install away for getting a working MariaDB. Yes, that’s right, simply do: brew install mariadb and that’s it — you’ll have MariaDB (currently 5.2.6) installed in no time. For further documentation and a step-by-step guide, visit the Knowledgebase article: Building MariaDB on Mac OS X using Homebrew.

Sometimes people ask why do I use MacOSX as my main work platform (isn’t that something to do with beliefs?). My answer is “good foundation with great user interface”. Though that can be treated as “he must like unix kernel and look&feel!”, it is not exactly that.

What I like is that I can have good graphical stable environment with some mandatory tools (yes, I used OS-supplied browser, mail, etc), but beside that maintain the bleeding edge open-source space (provided by MacPorts).

Also what I like, is OS-supplied development and performance tools. DTrace included is awesome, yes, but Apple did put some special touch on it too. This is visualization environment for dtrace probes and other profiling/debugging tools:

Snow Leopard to have ZFS
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The next release of Mac OS X, Snow Leopard, will have ZFS enabled by default. There’s a good article for the masses, at ZDNet on ZFS on Snow Leopard - do read it.

We all know running any form of server using HFS+ tends to be a bit of a joke. So, Snow Leopard Server will be where ZFS makes its debut. It won’t be long before regular users will want it in their Mac Pro’s and so on…

OS X as a deployment platform for production MySQL servers? This is not far off, I’m sure.

Compiling MySQL UDFs on Mac OS X
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Compiling and installing a User Defined Function for MySQL on Mac OS X seems tricky. There are installation notes, but they seem to be sparse on OS X (the comments are clues, though).

I was looking through the tutorial materials for Roland’s talk, and came up with what I think is the most full-proof way to ensure your UDFs get compiled…

gcc -Wall -dynamiclib -o udf_lightspeed.dylib -lstdc++ udf_lightspeed.c

The above will compile just fine, but MySQL will give you an interesting error saying “no suitable image found”. Its the infamous Error 1126.

Upon further poking, it seemed like the following should work:
gcc -Wall -dynamiclib -o udf_lightspeed.dylib -lstdc++ -lc

MySQL on Leopard OS X 10.5 PrefPane fixed!
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A few months ago, I wrote about the issues you will face with installing MySQL on OS X 10.5, Leopard. I am pleased to inform everyone, that this problem has been fixed!

The bug in question, mysql#28854, clearly stated that the problem was with the PrefPane. On Valentine’s Day 2008, Alfredo Kojima (of Workbench fame) fixed the problem, and uploaded a new PrefPane, to ftp://ftp.mysql.com/pub/mysql/download/gui-tools/MySQL.prefPane-leopardfix.zip.

This fixes an incompatibility with the default shipped PrefPane. The new PrefPane also detects if the MySQL data directory (/usr/local/mysql/data) has the

PHP + MySQL on Leopard
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’ve just tried to run PHP with MySQL on my Leopard and the first problem: “Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/mysql/mysql.sock’”

I’ve just changed php.ini to:
mysql.default_socket = /tmp/mysql.sock
The same situation with mysqli settings - be default it is not set so you should update it to the real path.
And it works!

Workbench beta adventure on Linux with Mono/WINE
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL Workbench has a beta out! No idea why its version 5.0.9, but its highly exciting. This software existed before, but this is quite unlike its predecessor. One snag for me is that it is Windows-only at the moment, with Linux and OS X versions to follow suit.

However, due to excitement, I decided to try running it on Linux, anyway.

Seeing that it is a .NET application, I thought I’d pass it through MoMA (the migration analyser). Everything passed, so I got excited. Running mono MySQLWorkbench.exe however, led me to a failure:
** ERROR **: Method ‘<Module>:<CrtImplementationDetails>.DoDllLanguageSupportValidation ()’ in assembly

MySQL on Leopard (OS X 10.5)
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Use MySQL? On Leopard/OS X 10.5? Yes, the current available packages from dev.mysql.com don’t work very well. I track “mysql” on Twitter, and boy, are there heaps of complaints.

So its nice to see, Dan Benjamin, a member of the MySQL community, stepping up, and creating the amazing Installing MySQL on Mac OS X article. The Preference Pane will obviously still not be there, and I don’t know why he thinks Mantorg (?) will build it, but I believe this is something MySQL needs to fix for the next release.

Tracking mysql#28854 will be useful.

Mark Pilgrim decided that it would be cool to poke fun at OS X, because it

MyODBC not showing in drivers list on Mac OS X
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Today I missed a bunch of good talks that I was hoping to attend, because I was figuring out a problem at the Guru Bar. Offending criminal: MySQL Connector/ODBC 3.51. Offending OS: Mac OS X/PowerPC.

OS X comes with an ODBC Administrator. Once you unpack the MySQL package, and the .pkg installs itself, you’ll find that all your files are installed in /usr/lib. You need to fire up ODBC Administrator, click on Drivers, and Add the driver. Give it an appropriate Description (MySQL), provide the location of the driver file (/usr/lib/libmyodbc3.dylib), and define it as available within the System (this enables you to enable at the System DSN as well as the User DSN, in

X-Lite for Intel Macs (beta)
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Have an Intel Mac? Rely on SIP soft phones, like X-Lite? Realize that it always crashes?

Try the beta, from CounterPath. It’s not called X-Lite, its beta, so it might eat your babies, but I’ve been using it for a while (because MySQL loves VoIP), and it works a charm. Looks like my office phone is back in business, even when I’m on OS X.

Core Data and MySQL as a data store?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’ve been thinking a lot about Core Data recently. It supports SQLite out of the box, and its rather scalable and fast. Main reason being sqlite3 is included on every desktop and server of OS X that has shipped since 10.4 (Tiger).

It got me thinking about using MySQL as a data store. It will involve work, as Core Data itself is not extensible. And if written, will we have to embed MySQL into the application? What kind of problems will this pose? Licensing is the least of my worries, I’m thinking more from an application perspective.

I haven’t played with the Enterprise Objects Framework (EOF) yet, but it allows custom SQL, and is available in WebObjects so its probably time to take a gander. Only real problem is its not in Core Data, thus not available in desktop

Camps, and WWDC2006
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Just as Jay writes about an upcoming MySQL Barcamp, I’m all stoked to head to the 2006 inagural WordCamp. After that, I’ll be at Apple’s WWDC 2006.

There’s one thing there that interests me greatly is the My Agenda tool - you can pre-plan what you’re going for, have it printed or subscribed to in the webcal (iCal) format.

So, anyone want to catch up in San Francisco? I’ll be around from the 4th right till the 12th (though I leave later in the evening then). Drop me an email or just comment here…

Roundup.

  • alias skedit='open -a skEdit' is highly useful. Now I can do skedit foo.php and it opens it up. What joy with such simple things.
  • Great to see Mono go into Rawhide, meaning FC5 Test 2 will have it. Now I can’t hardly wait. On PPC, if we had Xen working (upstream), life would be the ultimate breeze.
  • I will not be making it to linux.conf.au 2006 in New Zealand. Despite all good attempts to get a flight leaving KL, I can’t. Well, affordably (hello coach class). Registrations however are still open. There’s a Red Hat/Fedora meetup, and Joshua Wulf would be a useful person to contact if you’re rocking up for it (email discussion still has dates

  • Back in the land of small bosoms and pretentious girls. For a good greeting, I got massively sick - flowing nose, sneezing, tearing eyes. Its hard to believe I was born here, and yet I get all these complications everytime I rock up here.
  • Oh, and Streamyx, in both my houses, suck. Its so slow in comparison to what I’m used to sitting at home via cable. And look, their QoS is hopeless too. Sigh. Flickr uploads are slow, at best. And I’m supposed to have at least 256/384kbps upload speeds here.
  • Spent some time fighting the VPN, and it eventually succumbed. OpenVPN on Linux is a breeze (go Fedora!), but Tunnelblick took a bit more massaging to get working.

OSX has bugs?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

When I last blogged about the 2005 iBooks with 1.5GB of RAM losing Airport Extreme connectivity, I didn’t realise this was something in regards to the software provided with the iBook itself (10.4.2 afaik). I just popped 10.4 on it (from the ADC seed) and it seemed to work well - doing the massive 10.4.3 update now. Funnily enough, 10.4 itself doesn’t support the trackpad driver *grin*.

Hey, look at /var/log/windowserver.log. There goes my apple+tabbing actions. Thats ok, Fedora will have none of that rubbish. Rawhide on the iBook g4 (ginny) is going well. It installed fine, but I did notice a quirk: the trackpad starts working when firstboot hits, but it doesn’t work at all during the install - so for that I used the Mighty Mouse.
