It's great to see that someone is working on this!! I've been trying
for some time to get a stable version of mySQL running on Alpha Linux so
I gave this binary a try.
It certainly seems more stable than the version I built myself and it
doesn't crash now, however it seems to hang occasionally when under load
from a number of concurrent processes at once :-( This occurs when
running with Apache+mod_perl+Apache::DBI to maintain a persistent
database connection for each child process - if I turn this off it seems
Reproducing this is tricky, but running several copies of the
test-connect script at once usually seems to produce the same problem.
From a stack trace of the hung process it seems to be getting stuck
somewhere in pthead_connect. Any ideas?
