Patch for MySQL 5.0 support (3.96 KB, patch)

Details | Splinter Review

Description Jeff Garrett 2007-08-24 03:05:03 UTC
It is possible to include mysql_embed.h and to link with libmysqld, but the application fails with mysql_embedded:  '''' File not found.  The MySQL web site plainly states the embedded server support is not in 5.0, but will return in 5.1.  It would appear then that the guts were ripped out, but the dressing (header, library) stayed.

Patch for MySQL 5.0 support

The patch removes the reliance on the embedded server, and adds a rudimentary MySQL configuration.  Create a file ~/.roadster/roadster.conf with:
host = $host
user = $user
password = $password
database = $database

If the file is missing, or any parameters not set, defaults will be used.
