As some of you may have noticed, the amarok-2 ebuilds have not been keyworded ~amd64 because of the mysql issue. Tonight, we’ve got a step closer to fix that.
Ive been working on a patch for mysql to get libmysqld to be built as a shared lib for over 2 months now. I’ve added an initial patch on January 3rd. Tonight, I was able to finally get a working patch for mysql-5.0.76:
atlantis@lap64 ~/kde $ ls -la /usr/lib64/mysql/libmysqld.*
-rw-r–r– 1 root root 9447588 Mar 29 01:39 /usr/lib64/mysql/libmysqld.a
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1088 Mar 29 01:38 /usr/lib64/mysql/libmysqld.la
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Mar 29 01:39 /usr/lib64/mysql/libmysqld.so -> libmysqld.so.0.0.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Mar 29 01:39 /usr/lib64/mysql/libmysqld.so.0 -> libmysqld.so.0.0.0
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 5054576 Mar 29 01:39 /usr/lib64/mysql/libmysqld.so.0.0.0
This patch needs to be properly tested and will likely get some clean-ups, but it’s working locally. This has taken a considerable amount of work and time from me, but has only been possible thanks to Diego E. “Flameeyes” Pettenò – kudos to him.
AFAIK, this means that Gentoo is the first distro to include a shared lib libmysqld and after Robin “robbat2″ Johnson, cleans the patch and he’s happy with it, we’ll try to get it upstream.
I’ve delayed this post a few hours trying to get amarok-2.0.2 building, but it’s still failing because of qtscriptgenerator. However, it is already linking to libmysqld though:
lap64 amarok_build # pwd
lap64 amarok_build # scanelf -n lib/libamarok_collection-sqlcollection.so
TYPE NEEDED FILE
ET_DYN libamaroklib.so.1,libamarokpud.so.1,libkdeui.so.5,libkio.so.5,libthreadweaver.so.4,libmysqld.so.0,libpthread.so.0,libkdecore.so.5,libQtDBus.so.4,libQtCore.so.4,libQtGui.so.4,libstdc++.so.6,libc.so.6 lib/libamarok_collection-sqlcollection.so
If you like to see it with a “prettier output”:
lap64 amarok_build # ls lib/libamarok_collection-sqlcollection.so | xargs scanelf -L -n -q -F ‘%n #F’ | tr , ‘ ‘ | xargs qfile -C | sort -u
I’m trying some of the patches in the amarok + qt4.5 bug and will hopefully get it to build soon. So it seems we might be able to have a amarok2+amd64 party in Gentoo soon B)
atlantis@lap64 /home/gentoo-cvs/jmbsvicetto/media-sound/amarok $ qlist -IUv amarok

media-sound/amarok-2.0.2 (cdaudio ipod kdeprefix mp3tunes mp4 njb opengl)
I think a party is due in #gentoo-kde!! I’m going to update the amarok ebuild in the overlay in a minute. So, let’s PARTY!!!
