Debian / Ubuntu Percona builds

We had too many requests for deb builds of Percona releases so I could not ignore that and added scripts to build binaries on our Ubuntu 8.10 box. It’s going to be only 64bit releases (32bit is dead, isn’t it?), and I tested binaries on Debian Lenny system and it seems working fine.

So I prepared binaries for our Build13 (which I actually did not announce to not spam PlanetMySQL a lot, I will figure out another channel for announcements), and you can get it there, and your feedback is welcome!

As for changes for Build13 it contains InnoDB Data Dictionary restriction patch, which I mentioned before (

Speaking of deb binaries I tried to keep it compatible with native deb binaries, but I had to make some changes:

1. There was strange configure parameters

which I was not sure how to interpret, so I removed any mentioning of embedded server as 5.0 actually is not supposed to work in embedded mode and our patches can’t be compiled in this case.

2. I removed NDB cluster engine from builds, we have not tested combination of our patches with NDB so I really do not know how it works together.

  1. Woohoo! Looks like you guys busted out DEB packages for 5.1 with XtraDB too! You guys are awesome!

    32 bit dead? But, my difference engine only has two bits!

  3. Shk says:

    32 bits not dead! Plz make .deb for 32bits people :>. Many “old” 32 bits SMP systems are use to evaluate percona mysql system and tools before use then in a brand new 64bits server. :>

    I would add another request for 32bit build… some of us are still in the dark ages.

    Any chance we could get the src packages for those debs, for those of us who aren’t building on lenny or sid, and would like to rebuild them on etch?


  7. David Stainton says:

    I too would like Debian Etch debs.
