CentOS 6.3 & Percona 5.5.27

I apologize if this topic has been brought up but I could not find anything under search.

I’m trying to compile Percona from source on my CentOS 6.3 32-bit VM. I run make and it goes up to 85% and stops with this error:

/root/Percona-Server-5.5.27-rel28.0/sql/mysqld.cc: In function âvoid handle_connections_sockets()â:
/root/Percona-Server-5.5.27-rel28.0/sql/mysqld.cc:5429: error: invalid conversion from âsize_socketâ to âsocklen_tâ
/root/Percona-Server-5.5.27-rel28.0/sql/mysqld.cc:5429: error: initializing argument 3 of âint accept(int, sockaddr*, socklen_t*)â
/root/Percona-Server-5.5.27-rel28.0/sql/mysqld.cc:5496: error: invalid conversion from âintâ to âsocklen_tâ
/root/Percona-Server-5.5.27-rel28.0/sql/mysqld.cc:5496: error: initializing argument 3 of âint getsockname(int, sockaddr*, socklen_t*)â
make[2]: *** [sql/CMakeFiles/sql.dir/mysqld.cc.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [sql/CMakeFiles/sql.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2

Anyone have a clue what could be wrong?

Hi. I just tested this on Centos 6.3 32bit minimal and it compiled just fine. Prior to compiling Percona Server 5.5.27, I installed the following dependencies:
yum install gcc gcc-c++ rpm-build cmake gperf ncurses-devel perl readline-dev time zlib-devel libaio-devel bison make

I tried compiling from source and it compiled just fine:
tar xzvf Percona-Server-5.5.27-rel28.0.tar.gz
cd Percona-Server-5.5.27-rel28.0
cmake .

I tried compiling from rpmbuild and it compiled just fine too:
rpm -Uvh Percona-Server-55-5.5.27-rel28.0.291.rhel6.src.rpm
cd rpmbuild/SPECS
rpmbuild -bb percona-server.spec

Did you add additional parameters? Please let me know. Thanks!

I appreciate the response. I was using the standard Centos build. Using the minimal it compiled completely but with a lot of “warning: dereferencing type-punned pointer will break strict-aliasing rules” warnings. Compiling on a Debian system, these warnings don’t show up.

Using your steps I was able to get the MySQL server up and running but the warnings during compiling makes me a bit uneasy. Did you see any of those warnings?

Thanks so much for your help.
