Re: TokuDB disabled in Debian and Ubuntu - help me get it working?
The answer to your first question is, that's how CMake works. CMake's
Cross Compiling guide says that it can't guess the target processor
details, and you're supposed to provide that information either by
explicitly setting the variables, or by providing a toolchain file:
I would be surprised if launchpad.net's infrastructure did not include
suitable toolchain files, but this really isn't my area of expertise. If
you can find suitable ones to use, then you should use them, otherwise I
think you should probably just add something to the rules file to set those
Regarding your second problem, it sounds like your packaging scripts aren't
properly linking with jemalloc as the first library, with --whole-archive.
I say that because we get a failure (from Elena's stacktrace) inside
jemalloc code when calling free() inside the library constructor:

_GLOBAL__I_65535_0_libtokufractaltree_static.a_0x235798 () at
I've seen this happen before when a buffer is allocated with the system
allocator's malloc() (as likely happens in this call to getline(3)
and then the fractal tree tries to free it with jemalloc (
Please make sure that jemalloc is being linked properly (as the first
library, and with --whole-archive) *into mysqld*. It is not sufficient to
only link it to ha_tokudb.so, because in that case the process (mysqld)
will be using the system allocator, and there will be some possibly inlined
calls to jemalloc's interface inside ha_tokudb.so. If you need help with
this, please show me how your linking is being done and I'll try to give
the right advice. If it is against policy to ship with the allocator
statically linked in a binary, then you should make sure jemalloc isn't
linked in ha_tokudb.so anywhere, but I strongly recommend against that.
