  • Hi
    I have been able to compile and run this version “Percona-Server-5.6.14-rel62.0” on my imac running 10.6.8.
    I used gcc version 4.6.0 from xcode, cmake version, zlib-1.2.8 and have it running with this message:-

    I got a number of “has no symbols” while linking static libraries like libstrings.a, libmysys.a, libinnobase.a and others including libmysqlclient.a

    I have sent you the output for libmysqlclient.a (for brevity), let me know if you need the output for others too.
