OSX fix need on MariaDB-10.5


Mac lovers (who can use C/C++ and a debugger),

As your MariaDB developers are hard at work getting 10.5 ready for you, unfortunately a bug has slipped into the 10.5 branch making it unusable on OSX (at least that's what it looks like on the CI infrastructure).

The bug report is here:


As the time of developers is a little short as is the availability of OSX hardware, I'm hoping some of you are able to spend a few hours tackling this task to understand it better, and if possible, create patch.

 1. build environment https://mariadb.com/kb/en/Build_Environment_Setup_for_Mac/
 2. clone the source 
git clone --branch 10.5 https://github.com/MariaDB/server.git mariadb-server
cd mariadb-server
git submodule update --recursive --init
 3. build instructions https://mariadb.com/kb/en/generic-build-instructions/ (you don't need to install)
 4. test (from build directory)
  mysql-test/mysql-test-run  main.select

might be useful here:

--debugger=NAME or --gdb
client-debugger=NAME or client-gdb

To collaborative share your findings and to ask for further help MariaDB's community chat stream has been created for you.


To paraphrase J.F.Kennedy

ask not what your database server community can do for you — ask what you can do for your database server community.

Keep the community spirit going,
