Re: Glibc 2.3 support in MariaDB builds ?


Hi Kristian,

We are actually planning to upgrade some of our servers, but my feeling is it's too bad the supported glibc doesn't match what is supported in standard MySQL binaries : MariaDB is not anymore just a drop-in replacement. In my case, it's more difficult to convince my company to move to MariaDB 5.2 if they have to upgrade the OS in more than 100 servers ! ;) But yes, I indeed have the alternative to compile myself MariaDB, I was used to do this a few years ago :)

I'm trying to push my company to adopt MariaDB 5.2. Unfortunately, the
currently available binaries (at least for the x86-64 version)
requires a glibc 2.4, where we have only a 2.3 version (debian etch)
installed on our server.
MySQL 5.5 standard binaries, as well as Percona's one perfectly
support glibc 2.3, so is there any plan to provide glibc 2.3
compatible binaries for MariaDB ?
We used to have Debian etch binaries, however I removed them at some point
since Debian etch support ended half a year ago or so and there did not seem
much interest.

(If you want to help sponsor resurrecting binaries supporting such older
systems you could try contacting sales@xxxxxxxxxxxx.)

Alternatively, you can build the binaries yourself, it is not hard. You
basically need to run these two commands:
