MySQL 5.1.46 is now available on Dotdeb for your Lenny servers, in amd64 and i386 flavours. It fixes a lot of annoying bugs and upgrades the InnoDB plugin to version 1.0.7 for more performances.
Be careful : the MySQL server is now split in two separate packages :
- mysql-server-core-5.1 that contains only the mysqld binary and some system files,
- mysql-server-5.1 that depends on mysql-server-core-5.1 and that contains the init scripts and utilities to run the MySQL server in a Debian environment.
The migration to this new packaging schema is transparent and will not break any dependencies.
