The main problem is that for the moment only have one machine to build the
RPM:s one (with glibc 2.1)
We should shortly have a new dedicated Intel 'MySQL build' machine.
On this we plan to have vmware's running with a copy of the most common Linux
distributions + FreeBSD, so that we can build standard MySQL binaries
on them. This will hopefully make things easier in situations like
Anyway, MySQL shouldn't require gcc newer than 2.7.3; We only recommend
newer gcc version as this will give you a radical increase of
performance in MySQL. If your gcc version is quite old and you are
using RPM:s, you must however modify the MySQL .spec file to remove
the extra compiler arguments we have added to make MySQL faster.
