-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
several binary packages of the initial release of MySQL 4.0.15 did not
include the embedded server library "libmysqld.a", because of a
compile/linking error with the compilers used on these platforms. As a
workaround, the creation of the embedded server was disabled for these
packages for the release.
The affected platforms were:
Sun Solaris 9 (64bit)
HP-UX 11.11 (PA-RISC 32bit and 64bit)
HP-UX 11.20 (IA64)
IBM AIX 4.3.3
FreeBSD (x86, sparc64)
We have resolved this problem in the meanwhile and have rebuilt the affected
packages to include the embedded server now. They have been re-released as
If you don't use the embedded server, there is no need for you to upgrade,
as 4.0.15a uses the same code base as 4.0.15 and does not include any
other additional changes.
The source archive has also been updated to include this fix (plus two small
additional compile fixes for gcc 3.3 on Mac OS X and IBM AIX - see the
ChangeSets 1.1563.2.1 and 1.1563.2.2 in our BitKeeper repository at
http://mysql.bkbits.net:8080/mysql-4.0 for details).
Additionally, we also updated the Novell binaries to 4.0.15a - they
correct an erratum where certain utilities wouldn't properly display the
password prompt. Novell users are encouraged to update to this version.
