    Hi All,

    Has anyone installed 5.1 on Etch?

    I followed the mysql5 cluster howto and judging by the info released on the mysql site, the additional speed and replication features seem to make it worth the upgrade...but I'm a whimp and I don't know how to do it/or if its worth doing.

    Anyone want to weigh in?

    hmmm.....Experimental packages don't give me the warm fuzzies!

    I'm may clone a copy of my server and give it a shot...I'll report back on what I find this weekend (hopefully)

    Hi tfunky
    let me know how your 5.1 cluster is working i am running 5.1.24-rc made from sources.
    I am still testing, i have some problems with connections.
    Sometimes MySQL i saying that xxx user is denied by configuration and after retry it lets him connect. Permissions are OK, but i think it might be the problem with loadbalancers.

    I'm not brave enough to build from source by my self, so I sort of gave up :(

    I'm still running v5.

    And actually I've run into so many problems w/ my homebuilt mysql server loadbalancer that I've downed the 2nd node and I'm just running off the one, main server until I get it worked out.

    If you don't mind me asking, how did you get the load balancers configured to work correctly?

    I tried using pound w/ setting the 3306 port and using tcp checks...and it forwards traffic correctly on the VIP to the main box. If I shut the main box down however, it does not redirect to the 2nd master :(

    I'd love to hear how your progressing!!!~!
