    since the update from 5.1.57 to 5.1.58 w have a big problem. the configured open_files_limit is ignored an set to the default 1024. so we always get a “ERROR 1018 (HY000) at line 1: Can’t read dir of ‘.’ (errno: 24)”

    @Guillaume Plessis : What is your guess of MySQL 5.5 availability on Dotdeb? Weeks? Months?

    @Gordon Franke : Dotdeb is built for Debian, not for Ubuntu. You may encounter such issues.

    Your problem is that the mysql-client-5.1 package from Dotdeb includes the /usr/bin/mysql file that already belongs to mysql-client-core-5.1 from Ubuntu. Be sure to uninstall this last one before installing MySQL packages from Dotdeb.

    Before upgrade with the my.cnf provided by the package:

    #Nov 8 07:41:15 alienvault mysqld: 111108 7:41:15 [ERROR] /usr/sbin/mysqld: unknown variable ‘lc-messages-dir=/usr/share/mysql’

    Thanks, I’ve already tried that as well, unfortunately doesn’t work ieither.

    Are you planning to fix it? It would really be nice to be able to install dotdeb 5.1 on squeeze. Now it seems impossible. We’re practically stuck with the 1.5 years old release in squeeze.
