  • xtrabackup binary file 150 Byte ???

    —— snap ——–

    xtrabackup-1.0.tar.gz 09-Dec-2009 22:21 150

  • The file https://www.percona.com/mysql/xtrabackup/1.0/binary/xtrabackup-1.0.tar.gz seems to be broken. It has a size of only 150 Bytes and if you extract it you get only an empty folder xtrabackup-1.0/bin. Could you check, please?

  • Raphael,

    The archive was really broken. rpmbuild removed files which were supposed to be used for tar.gz package.
    The respective bug is created https://bugs.launchpad.net/percona-xtrabackup/+bug/495113 to prevent this error in next releases.
    Meanwhile I fixed the archive. Please check again.

  • got following exception:

  • Any plans for supporting the compressed innodb tables? Ran into an error using this after switching to mysql 5.1.41 and the innodb plugin 1.5 with compression enabled on a couple tables.

  • Aleksandr,

    Why did you build 5.0 version only?
    The binary cannot support Barracuda.
    There are complain about it…


  • Can you make RPM available the new version that supports compressed tables? I see that you have a patch, but the repository does not have a new build. Thanks!

  • gary,

    We are performing build right now.
    You can get rpm there
