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 https://www.percona.com/downloads/Percona-Server-5.0/LATEST/deb/, and your feedback is welcome!
As for changes for Build13 it contains InnoDB Data Dictionary restriction patch, which I mentioned before (https://www.percona.com/blog/2009/02/11/limiting-innodb-data-dictionary/).
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.
