Description of problem:
Including the embedded MySQL server library would save many recompilation headaches.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: libmysqld.a not found
Embedded server could be made available by adding the following line to mysql.spec:
> --with-embedded-server \
The MySQL component builds fine on my machine (RHL 8.0/i686) with embedded
server enabled. I thought about this request overnight and we don't have
enough customer interest to justify the support cost (ie.knowledge) of
including it in the distribution.
I noticed that you've updated 84137 stating that it builds fine without
optimization so at least there is a workaround for you.
