Possible issue with 5.5.27-29.0 ??

I have recently installed 5.5.27-29.0 for my Ubunto development server which runs on VM.

When I start mysql using /etc/init.d/mysql start it takes few seconds and comes back with status failed however no indication in mysql-error.log and server runs absoultly fine.

i am able to login and even run replication from Mysql 5.1 server, could this be a possible bug?

which is the stable release which can be used in production ?

here are the commands output

/etc/init.d/mysql stop

  • Stopping MySQL (Percona Server) mysqld [ OK ]

/etc/init.d/mysql start

  • Starting MySQL (Percona Server) database server mysqld [fail]

tail -f mysql-error.log

Hi,

If you see “status failed” while starting mysql and mysql server runs fine then I guess, its possible bug. Can you please report this bug with all details?
