Critical update : MySQL 5.5.25a

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.

@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.

@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 🙂

But if you haven’t solution in this problem !
How to remove this message in phpMyAdmin ?


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.
