Is there a good build of Percona-Server-5.1.45-10 on MAC OS X 10.5.8?

When I try to build from source, I got the compile error

Vadim says that we don’t support Mac. However if you are interested in it, we are open to sponsorship for that, and you can contact Bill to discuss.

That’s bad! You don’t have to pay a cent to use MariaDB on your Mac. What you can do, in fact, is to ban the xtradb.

If you want to install MariaDB from the source at your Mac just follow these few steps:

  1. Download the innodb plugin from Innobase website (too much reliable than xtradb)

  2. untar the file at /storage

  3. Erase, remove, destroy D the xtradb directory

  4. rename the innobase directory to xtradb

  5. ./configure as you wish, make, make install and there you go

For default the mariadb compilation scripts exclude the embedded innodb from the mysqld.

I adivse you to follow the directions at: stallation.html#innodb-plugin-installation-source

If you need any extra help feel free to get in touch.
