That's great news! I'm excited to hear that. Which version would that
be... 4.0? Or perhaps another 3.x version?
In the meantime, my boss is going to wonder why I'm not populating a
database for him. He will make me use Access if I don't get cracking,
so... do you know of a working version of MySQL for Darwin 1.4.1 ?
Alternatively, I am open to a workaround until the working version is
released. I can actually use MySQL (as far as I know), it's just the
"shutdown" that hangs. I have to use "kill -9" in order to kill the
daemon. This makes me worry about my data, since this command has the
potential to cause corruption. Is there some way that I can preserve
the data, or protect it from corruption, so that at the end of the day
when I shut down my laptop I can use "kill -9" without fear of damaging
Or is the best policy to just back up the data directory and then go
ahead and kill the daemon, then in the morning when I get to work move
the backup back into the working directory?
I admit that I'm still new to MySQL so I'm not sure exactly what the
best course of action would be.
Thanks to Sinisa, Sasha and to anyone who has input on this situation,
PS: do you advise that I beta-test the upcoming MySQL version? I would
be open to this idea, especially if it fixes my problem, but I am
working in a production environment and so would be best served with as
stable a release as is available.
