MySQL 5.1.36 is now available on Dotdeb for Debian 4.0 “Etch” / Debian 5.0 “Lenny” in amd64/i386 flavours.

It fixes a lot of annoying bugs (read the list of changes to be convicted), especially one about granting the right privileges during the Debian post-installation process. The mysql-server-5.1 package should now install without needing any ugly trick.

Please upgrade your servers.

    I get a

    Starting MySQL database server: mysqld/etc/init.d/mysql: line 111: 21634 Segmentation fault /usr/bin/mysqld_safe > /dev/null 2>&1
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . failed!

    while upgrading.

    Is that one already known or should I provide further information, e.g. an strace or something?

    … solved. Seems that your 5.1.36 doesn’t like your libgoogle-perftools0. After uninstalling and removing from the initscript, mysql runs fine.
