Does anyone know if it is possible to copy raw MySQL data files from RHEL5 to RHEL6. From what I understand, MySQL data and log files are binary-compatible on all platforms having the same floating-point number format. Thus, transferring from one RHEL5 server to another should work. However, I have heard that RHEL6 modified the GNU C Compiler and integrated DFP support with it. Would this make it incompatible?
