Colleagues, I tried to update packages that form "Croco's Owl Lamp", and I noticed several bad things. First, my old MySQL SRPM doesn't build under the recent 3.0-current, complaining that some test (diffing a generated file to some ethalon) fails. As that version of MySQL is actually very old, (5.1.x), I decided to try newer version -- and learned that it is now built with cmake. Well, I really hate cmake (and now I've got one more reason to), but it looks like we can't do anything here: the famous fork of MySQL named MariaDB is also cmake-built and, furthermore, it even needs sudo with password checking disabled (!) for 'fully-automated build' (this is a citation from their site), which is inappropriate and makes me feel I shouldn't waste my time with MariaDB and its developers, at all. So, I tried and even succeeded with rpm'ing cmake for Owl (the version is 22.214.171.124). However, this didn't help. After I created a mysql.spec file for cmake-driven build, it worked up to the point of '%install', where rpmbuild fails trying to copy a file into its final system location instead of local directory for packing. The Makefile which cmake generates, seems to ignore the 'DESTDIR=...' argument completely, and here is where I gave up after a ten or so hopeless attempts to fix something. Well, I could agree to pack cmake, but I feel absolutely unprepared to waste my time _learning_ it as to be able to patch MySQL's build configuration files. This is way too much. As MySQL is installed on servers very often, I wonder whether anyone has better experience with this piece of sh^W software. (tendencies in contemporary IT smell like a catastrophe, heh) The version of MySQL was 5.5.33, may be other versions pack easier? Or may be I miss something? Thanks! -- Croco
