The packages of MySQL 5.5.24 are now available for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” on both amd64 and i386 architectures. It fixes an undisclosed security issue (thanks Oracle) and some other bugs as well.

As usual, please read carefully the full Changelog before upgrading.

Note : the packages have been updated to include a missing init script. Sorry for the mess.

    Thank you Guillaume for updating! I had to restart MySQL manually but this wasn’t really a problem… 😉

    It stopped the mysqld server and forgot to start back 🙂 So I started manually, everything is fine here

    This package seems to be missing /etc/init.d/mysqld. Is this an oversight, or am I missing something?

  4. Cameron

    @Justin, that didn’t exist either. I copied the version of it from the github repo and it works fine, it’s just somehow missing from the package, or it’s not installing properly on my system.

    Yop Gui !

    Ca va ? Même soucis, le mysql qui ne se relance pas automatiquement. Si tu as besoin de la trace, cd /IRC 😉

    I’m sure this is only a problem if you have logging turned on.

    I just had a problem with the install. During the install it seems to create two mysql-bin files with root privileges. And then it’s can’t access them when it tries to start the server after updating the software.

    I eventually got around this issue by turning on the sticky bits on user/group (6700) on the /var/lib/mysql directory. Combined with shutting mysqld down before the upgrade, it finally worked.

    @Guillaume Plessis : What are your plans for including MySQL 5.5.25 in DotDeb?

  11. Guillaume Plessis

    @b.miguel11 : MySQL 5.5.25 has just been released. Please let me find some free time to package it.

    Are you impacted by a critical bug that needs an urgent update?

  12. b.miguel11

    @Guillaume Plessis : Certainly not 🙂 It is just that I am freshly-installing a server and I would like to install the latest version :p But apart from that no worries :p
