Subject:Duplication in sles9 for my.cnf
View as plain text  
Hi,

I have noticed in the man page for mysql from
MySQL-client-community-5.0.37-0.sles9.i586.rpm there is a repetition in
the my.cnf files read by mysql. I am wondering if this is at all
significant.

This is what "man mysql" shows for the
MySQL-client-community-5.0.37-0.sles9.i586.rpm install,

        mysql  Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.37, for pc-linux-gnu (i686) using
        readline 5.0
        
        Default options are read from the following files in the given
        order:
        /etc/my.cnf ~/.my.cnf /etc/my.cnf
        
So the order is
  
  /etc/my.cnf
  ~/.my.cnf
  /etc/my.cnf

On Debian Sarge with 4.1.11, the order is more sensible,

        mysql  Ver 14.7 Distrib 4.1.11, for pc-linux-gnu (i386)
        
        Default options are read from the following files in the given
        order:
        /etc/mysql/my.cnf /var/lib/mysql/my.cnf ~/.my.cnf

The order on Sarge, 4.1.11 is

  /etc/mysql/my.cnf
  /var/lib/mysql/my.cnf
  ~/.my.cnf

Cheers,
-Janek
