Description Jonathan Gazeley 2009-09-10 17:49:48 UTC
KEYWORD FutureFeature

Description of problem:

The mysql-server package is built without support for the FEDERATED engine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Confirmed on Fedora 11, MySQL 5.1.37

How reproducible:

Every time mysql-server is installed.

Steps to Reproduce:

Install mysql-server

Actual results:

mysql> show engines;
| Engine     | Support | Comment                                                    | Transactions | XA   | Savepoints |
| ndbcluster | NO      | Clustered, fault-tolerant tables                           | NULL         | NULL | NULL       | 
| MRG_MYISAM | YES     | Collection of identical MyISAM tables                      | NO           | NO   | NO         | 
| CSV        | YES     | CSV storage engine                                         | NO           | NO   | NO         | 
| MyISAM     | DEFAULT | Default engine as of MySQL 3.23 with great performance     | NO           | NO   | NO         | 
| InnoDB     | YES     | Supports transactions, row-level locking, and foreign keys | YES          | YES  | YES        | 
| MEMORY     | YES     | Hash based, stored in memory, useful for temporary tables  | NO           | NO   | NO         | 
6 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Expected results:

Not so much "expected" as "desired"... I would like the packagers to consider building mysql-server with --with-plugins=federated to provide support for the FEDERATED engine.

If this is not possible, how about an additional or alternative package that provides this functionality?

Additional info:

Currently the only way to have a MySQL server with the FEDERATED engine is to build it from source. I would like to be able to install it from a repository with the FEDERATED engine already compiled in.

The federated storage engine already is built as a plugin.  You just need to enable it.
