Posted by & filed under MySQL.

The packages of MySQL 5.5.25a are now available for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” on both amd64 and i386 architectures. They fixes a very annoying bug on InnoDB : bug #65745, “UPDATE on InnoDB table enters recursion, eats all disk space”.

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

    @voro1984 : dotdeb.0 was à try to run mysqld_safe as mysql user. It brought potential trouble (with open_files_limit, for exemple). I’ve reverted this change.

    Why do I need gdb and gdbserver packages? They are dependencies.

  3. Guillaume Plessis

    @Matic : I don’t think gdb and gdbserver are direct and explicit dependencies. Maybe they’re just recommendations for one package from the second dependency level. Please check it with a decent package manager (such as aptitude or deselect) that will allows you to fine-tune your package selection and to know why a package is needed.
    And in general, please avoid installing *-dev or *-dbg programs on a production server.

    I’ve tried to install on Ubuntu 11.04 but it required Initscripts 2.88 (Ubuntu 11.04 is using 2.87) 🙁

    @Giang From About: “[…]The packages from Dotdeb should work on Ubuntu, but no additional support will be provided.”
    Also, ubuntu 11.10 has initscripts 2.88dsf-13.10ubuntu4 and LTS is 12.04, so I shouldn’t blame on Guillaume…
    Backport or upgrade 🙂

    @voro1984 MySQL 5.5.25 worked fine on Ubuntu 11.04 😀 It’s ok because dotdeb is not designed fro Ubuntu 😀

    How to solve this problem?

  9. Guillaume Plessis

    @Sergey : just make the libmysqlclient18 dependency less restrictive for your freeradius-mysql package by editing your debian/control. Then rebuild it.

  10. Guillaume Plessis

    @Lincoln Marques : MySQL 6.0 does not exist. The next MySQL version release will be 5.6. Yes, I’ll keep on packaging it, in an Oracle or MariaDB flavour.

    My problem is solved on Debian Squeeze/Sid !!! 😀
    This is the problem :
    “Your PHP MySQL library version 5.1.63 differs from your MySQL server version 5.5.25a. This may cause unpredictable behavior.”

    Solutions : Install php5-mysqlnd and download the last version of phpMyAdmin.

    #cd /root/
    #cp -R /usr/share/phpmyadmin/ /root/
    #apt-get install php5-mysqlnd

    php5-mysqlnd remove automatically php5-mysql and phpMyAdmin

    #tar xvzf phpMyAdmin-
    #mv phpMyAdmin- /usr/share/phpmyadmin
    #cp -R /usr/share/phpmyadmin/

    Now I have not a message in my phpMyAdmin homepage after login and it’s work.
