MySQL-5.5 and MariaDB-5.2

Given the recent issues with MySQL-5.1.58, I’d like to ask anyone interested in MySQL and or MariaDB and willing to do some tests, to try the new MySQL-5.5[1] and MariaDB-5.2[2] ebuilds in the MySQL overlay.
Please help us test the ebuilds before we unmask them in the tree so we can prevent any issues and provide a better experience for users.

[2] – MariaDB

  1. Right now building mariadb-5.2.7 and got a quetion … when compiling mariadb with the sphinx useflag,

    [ebuild N ] app-misc/sphinx-0.9.9 USE=”-debug -id64 -mysql -postgres -stemmer -test” 1,190 kB [0]

    gets pulled. shouldn’t sphinx get pulled with the +mysql flag?

    1. We’ve been doing the mysql bumps in the overlay for a long time now.
      I’m used to do the testing on overlays and to move the finished (almost finished) result to the tree.

      In any case, both mariadb-5.2.7 and mysql-5.5.14 were put in the tree a few days ago.

  2. # emerge =dev-db/mariadb-5.2.7
    These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

    … done!

  3. I have just performed upgrade – it went without any problems – from 5.1.56 to 5.5.14 – D B is working as it did before

  4. Hello,

    I’m currently running mariadb-5.2.7 on my test/development computer without problem.

    However, doing revdep-rebuild, I get these errors:
    * broken /usr/lib64/mysql/plugin/ (requires -lmysqlservices)
    * broken /usr/lib64/mysql/plugin/ (requires -lmysqlservices)
    Rebuilding mariadb does not help.

  5. I just upgraded from dev-db/mysql-5.1.56 to dev-db/mariadb-5.2.8, so far everything seems to work dandy. Heres to looking forward.
