Norbert Tretkowski recently worked on packaging MySQL 5.0.67, the latest Community Edition release of MySQL Server. But, since the next Debian version – Lenny – is already frozen, the packages were not uploaded to the official archive.

Instead of that, I rebuilt them and made them available on Dotdeb for Etch amd64/i386.

Please take a look at the official Changelog before upgrading and thank Norbert for his good work.

    I’ll add this patch to my packages if the official Debian maintainer decides to add it too : My MySQL packages are just backports from Debian unstable/testing.

    Please fill a bug report on Debian’s website to include these features.

    Ok, I understand your opinion. But I don’t think these patches will get into official Debian release.
    How difficult is to apply some patches to your src mysql package? I know there is some “debian way” for it…
    Maybe you can give us some short howto for this.

    The best way to do it is to :
    – fetch the source package (apt-get source mysql-server-5.0)
    – uncompress it (dpkg-source -x *.dsc)
    – put the patch in the debian/patches/ subdirectory and add it to the 00list file
    – rebuild the packages (./debian/rules binary)
