Changelog for MySQL-client-community-5.1.72-1.rhel5.x86_64.rpm :
Mon Jan 23 11:00:00 2012 Kent Boortz
- Updated Packager information

Wed Sep 14 12:00:00 2011 Joerg Bruehe
- Let the RPM capabilities (\"obsoletes\" etc) ensure that an upgrade may replace
the RPMs of any configuration (of the current or the preceding release series)
by the new ones. This is done by not using the implicitly generated capabilities
(which include the configuration name) and relying on more generic ones which
just list the function (\"server\", \"client\", ...).
The implicit generation cannot be prevented, so all these capabilities must be
explicitly listed in \"Obsoletes:\"

Thu Jul 7 12:00:00 2011 Joerg Bruehe >
- Fix bug#45415: \"rpm upgrade recreates test database\"
Let the creation of the \"test\" database happen only during a new installation,
not in an RPM upgrade.
This affects both the \"mkdir\" and the call of \"mysql_install_db\".

Tue Dec 14 11:00:00 2010 Kent Boortz

Thu Jul 29 12:00:00 2010 Kent Boortz
- Merged in code from the MySQL Server 5.5 spec file, that corrects
the handling of \"libmygcc.a\"

- Corrected problem that the \"lib/mysql/plugin\" directory might be
empty, making the copy of plugins fail

Tue Jun 15 12:00:00 2010 Joerg Bruehe
- Change the behaviour on upgrade:

* the server was stopped before the upgrade is started, this is taken as a
sign the administrator is handling that manually, and so the new server will
not be started automatically at the end of the upgrade.
The start/stop scripts will still be installed, so the server will be started
on the next machine boot.
This is the 5.1 version of fixing bug#27072 (RPM autostarting the server).

Sun May 2 12:00:00 2010 Kent Boortz

Fri Apr 2 12:00:00 2010 Joerg Bruehe
- \"percent define\" must not be used in the Changelog section.

Fri Feb 5 11:00:00 2010 Joerg Bruehe
- Formatting changes:
Have a consistent structure of separator lines and of indentation
(8 leading blanks => tab).
- Some other cleanup to bring \"specific\" and \"generic\" spec files
better in sync, as written in bug#33248.
- Remove handling the \"maria\" engine, that is too far off.
- Make \"--with-zlib-dir=bundled\" the default, add an option to disable it.
- Improve the runtime check for \"libgcc.a\", protect it against being tried
with the Intel compiler \"icc\".
- Alignment with generic: ensure some C++ flags.

Fri Aug 21 12:00:00 2009 Jonathan Perkin
- Install innodb_plugin.
- Correctly package missing libraries.
- Disable the libdaemon_example and ftexample plugins.

Thu Jul 30 12:00:00 2009 Joerg Bruehe
- Add the \"old vendor\" (= \"MySQL AB\") and expand the upgrade check
so that \"MySQL\" packages can be upgraded by \"Sun\" ones.

Tue Mar 31 12:00:00 2009 Joerg Bruehe

Wed Jun 28 12:00:00 2006 Joerg Bruehe

Wed Nov 27 11:00:00 2002 Lenz Grimmer

Linux distributions now support this scheme as proposed by the LSB either
directly or via a compatibility symlink)
- Use new \"restart\" init script action instead of starting and stopping
- Be more flexible in activating the automatic bootup - use insserv (on
older SuSE versions) or chkconfig (Red Hat, newer SuSE versions and
others) to create the respective symlinks

Wed Sep 25 12:00:00 2002 Lenz Grimmer
- MySQL-Max now requires MySQL >= 4.0 to avoid version mismatches
(mixing 3.23 and 4.0 packages)

Fri Aug 9 12:00:00 2002 Lenz Grimmer
- Turn off OpenSSL in MySQL-Max for now until it works properly again
- enable RAID for the Max binary instead
- added compatibility link: safe_mysqld -> mysqld_safe to ease the
transition from 3.23

Thu Jul 18 12:00:00 2002 Lenz Grimmer
- Reworked the build steps a little bit: the Max binary is supposed
to include OpenSSL, which cannot be linked statically, thus trying
to statically link against a special glibc is futile anyway
- because of this, it is not required to make yet another build run
just to compile the shared libs (saves a lot of time)
- updated package description of the Max subpackage
- clean up the BuildRoot directory afterwards

Mon Jul 15 12:00:00 2002 Lenz Grimmer
- Updated Packager information
- Fixed the build options: the regular package is supposed to
include InnoDB and linked statically, while the Max package
should include BDB and SSL support

Fri May 3 12:00:00 2002 Lenz Grimmer
- Use more RPM macros (e.g. infodir, mandir) to make the spec
file more portable
- reorganized the installation of documentation files: let RPM
take care of this
- reorganized the file list: actually install man pages along
with the binaries of the respective subpackage
- do not include libmysqld.a in the devel subpackage as well, if we
have a special \"embedded\" subpackage
- reworked the package descriptions

Mon Oct 8 12:00:00 2001 Monty
- Added embedded server as a separate RPM

Fri Apr 13 12:00:00 2001 Monty
- Added mysqld-max to the distribution

and non-threaded library is shipped.

Thu Jul 1 12:00:00 1999 David Axmark
- Added support for shared libraries in a separate sub
package. Original fix by David Fox (

- The --enable-assembler switch is now automatically disables on
platforms there assembler code is unavailable. This should allow
building this RPM on non i386 systems.

Mon Feb 22 11:00:00 1999 David Axmark
- Removed unportable cc switches from the spec file. The defaults can
now be overridden with environment variables. This feature is used
to compile the official RPM with optimal (but compiler version
specific) switches.

- Removed the repetitive description parts for the sub rpms. Maybe add
again if RPM gets a multiline macro capability.

- Added support for a pt_BR translation. Translation contributed by
Jorge Godoy .

Wed Nov 4 11:00:00 1998 David Axmark
- A lot of changes in all the rpm and install scripts. This may even
be a working RPM :-)

Sun Aug 16 12:00:00 1998 David Axmark
- A developers changelog for MySQL is available in the source RPM. And
there is a history of major user visible changed in the Reference
Manual. Only RPM specific changes will be documented here.
