Subject: [gentoo-user] slotted mysql ready for testing (~arch)
Date: Tue, 31 Jan 2006 02:20:51
As the subject say,
  In less than 24 hours slotted mysql ebuilds will be unmasked, to point
the finger they are:

There is a migration guide [1] that explain some of the magic, thanks to
the editors: Chris White, Jan Kundrát, Joshua Saddler to make it human
readable, beat me instead if it broke your box.

A third one, mysql-5.1.4_alpha-r30, as you can guess this will stay
masked (and yes I did noticed many days ago that 5.1.5 has been
released, just rename the ebuild if you want to give it a try).

The un-slotted counterparts will disappear from the tree at the same time:

The following will survive, without being slotted, either because too
old or because they are the last marked stable in the portage tree.

At the end February the mysql herd will cooperate with the arch's teams
to test and mark stable the following:
at that point in time older version will be removed too (3.23.58 is
another story).

Last notice:
emerge -pv =mysql-5.0.18 =mysql-5.0.18-r30
Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild  NS   ] dev-db/mysql-5.0.18  USE="berkdb cluster extraengine
max-idx-128 perl ssl utf8 -big-tables -debug -minimal -static" 0 kB
[ebuild   R   ] dev-db/mysql-5.0.18-r30  USE="berkdb cluster extraengine
max-idx-128 perl ssl -big-tables -debug -minimal -srvdir -static"

As you can see the non-standard "utf8" use flag has been removed,
nothing bad, it was a easy replace in the my.cnf config file from
"latin1" to "utf8" and vice-versa.
the "srvdir" is easy too, it add support for "datadir" in
"/srv/localhost/mysql" but only for fresh install (see glep 20)
