Re-compiling MySQL 5.0 with OpenSSL support under Debian

If you’ve ever required OpenSSL support enabled for MySQL Server 5.0 under debian, then you will need to recompile MySQL. Under Debian this is very easy.

If you’ve ever required OpenSSL support enabled for MySQL Server 5.0 under debian, then you will need to recompile MySQL. Under Debian this is very easy.

First you will need to download the package source, as root type the following:


cd /root
mkdir build
cd build
apt-get source mysql-source-5.0

The above commands will create a folder called ‘build’, enter the directory and then download the mysql-server-5.0 package source. The following are the results under an Ubuntu server:


[root@jager:/root/builds]# apt-get source mysql-server-5.0
Reading package lists... Done

dpkg-source: unpacking mysql-dfsg-5.0_5.0.38.orig.tar.gz
dpkg-source: applying ./mysql-dfsg-5.0_5.0.38-0ubuntu1.1.diff.gz

If you list the directory contents you should have something like this:


[root@jager:/root/builds]# ls -al
total 16408K
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 2007-10-30 13:08 ./
drwxr-xr-x 15 root root 4096 2007-10-30 13:06 ../
drwxr-xr-x 39 root root 4096 2007-10-30 13:08 mysql-dfsg-5.0-5.0.38/
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 148883 2007-10-10 14:11 mysql-dfsg-5.0_5.0.38-0ubuntu1.1.diff.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1209 2007-10-10 14:11 mysql-dfsg-5.0_5.0.38-0ubuntu1.1.dsc
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 16602385 2007-04-03 05:03 mysql-dfsg-5.0_5.0.38.orig.tar.gz

Before we proceed we need to make sure that we have all of the necessary tools to compile the new packages and create the .deb:


apt-get install devscripts build-essential fakeroot

You will also want to make sure that you have any dependencies that the package would require:


apt-get build-dep mysql-server-5.0

Now that we have everything we need, we just need to make a modification to the file “mysql-dfsg-5.0-5.0.38/debian/rules” with your favorite editor. Search for the following lines within the file:


--without-openssl
--with-yassl

And change the lines to the below:


--with-openssl
--without-yassl

Basically you’re enabling OpenSSL and disabling YaSSL, make sure that you have OpenSSL installed (apt-get install openssl). Once you’ve finished editing the file, save it and exit out of the editor.

You will then want to start the compiling and build of the Debian packages, run the following command within the “mysql-dfsg-5.0-5.0.3” directory like so:


[root@jager:/root/builds/mysql-dfsg-5.0-5.0.3]# debuild -us -uc

Everything should process properly, and you should end up with a handful of .deb packages within “/root/builds”:


[root@jager:/root/builds]# ls -al

Just run dpkg -i *.deb and all should be good!

New LinuxCOE helps admins customize distros

This is a really neat idea. You can roll all of your scripted installations for all of your distributions into one application, instead of configuring each distributions application. For example, if you wanted to install RedHat, you no longer need Kickstart. The same would go for Ubuntu, no more preseed. Just one application to handle all of the scripted installations.

Foxconn Brings DirectX 10 To The Broke Masses

Foxconn Brings DirectX 10 To The Broke Masses -

foxconngeforce8400gs.jpg

So you’ve got your Windows Vista and you want to get a hold of a little bit of that DirectX 10 action, but your bummer of a video card is being a buzz kill? That sucks. You’re supposed to upgrade that, but who’s got that kind of scratch laying around? Those cards cost an arm and a leg and probably some other stuff. Sit down, dweeb, Foxconn’s got you set.

Today the silicon-card maker announced two new cards made for DirectX 10 based around the Nvidia GeForce 8400GS. And they both fall in the sub-$100 category. Sure, that could mean $99.99, but it’s still a good deal. The cards are pretty much the same, though one has 256MB RAM whilst the other has a wimpy 128MB.

We don’t have a lot of details, just that they exist and will hit the market soon. Their maxrez (that’s maximum resolution, n00b) is 2,560×1,600, which is totally respectable. The core clock is 450MHz with 850MHz on the memory clock. I don’t expect you to understand that, but it basically means they’re not the fastest around, but still plenty speedy for under a Benjamin. Word.
