Description Edmond Hui 2007-01-24 21:00:30 UTC
Description of problem:

MySQL insert operation seem to corrupt table with a duplicate key often. (This
does not happen in FC4 before upgrade)

How reproducible:

I am running many web application i.e. NucleusCMS and Gregarius, both encounter
this issue.

error often like this:
Failed to execute the SQL query

insert into item (cid, added, title, url, enclosure, description, author,
unread, pubdate, md5sum, guid) values (30, now(), '既然中国没有审查互联网,那么

In this case, Gregarius (a PHP based RSS reader) trying to insert a new item to
the a table.

With such a vague problem description, there's really nothing I can do with this
report.  Can you put together a reproducible test case?

Comment 2 Edmond Hui 2007-01-25 11:30:28 UTC
Sorry for not giving more info. The problem really happen randomly. I have a 
few web applications running on the server and this just happened once every 
few days. So, I have no idea how to reproduce it.

Some more info hopefully help shine some light is My server is a AMD64 X2 3800+ 
deal-core CPU, I suspect this happened when multiple insert queries execute at 
the same time. The reason for saying this is that I notice Gregarius is 
configured to do 3 RSS feeds checking on the same time, and once in a while 
this corruption resulted. And in my NucleusCMS blog case, the corrupted table 
is to store a key that generate during on each page load, which multiple access 
can happened on the same time.

Not sure this give some more idea on the problem.

It's probably beyond my ability to fix :-(  Suggest you report it upstream at

Comment 5 Edmond Hui 2007-03-15 15:51:50 UTC
I contact MySQL and they said to retry on 5.0.37. Is there plan to upgrade to
this version for FC6 on x86_64?

see http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=25853

Comment 6 Tom Lane 2007-03-16 01:47:08 UTC
I'm looking at it ... they seem to have made some incompatible changes, which we can't allow to go into 
FC6 (people would be unhappy if a routine "yum update" broke their databases ...), so it's a question of 
whether I can back those out or not.

Comment 7 Edmond Hui 2007-03-16 01:50:07 UTC
Thanks for looking into it.

Comment 8 Tom Lane 2007-03-23 16:56:34 UTC
5.0.37 has been pushed as a test update for FC6.
