Week 2(2nd June – 9th June)

KEY ACCOMPLISHMENTS LAST WEEK

  1. Switched from Windows to Ubuntu and learnt a few linux commands that will help me while coding for mysql in the long run.
  2. Installed VS2005 Express and created the mysql.sln project file to view the complete mysql coding. However the build failed … The cl compiler was not available.

KEY TASKS THAT STALLED LAST WEEK

1 Building mysql from source.

a. On cygwin

b. On VS 2005 Express

c. On Ubuntu 6.06

All of the above installations had some setup issues, and debugging them was time consuming and a nightmare but things are getting sorted now.

KEY CONCERNS

Building mysql from source is problematic and time-consuming due to it’s dependencies on various tools. This fact has been stated in http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/MySQL_Internals_Guided_Tour as well as by many others on IRC as well as in other blogs. Thus enormous amount of time is spent on checking which tools are available and which are not and installing the same.

TASKS IN THE UPCOMING WEEK

1. Installation on Cygwin, Visual Studio 2005 and Ubuntu – provide a web page on the blog for debugging major errors encountered while installing mysql from source.

2. Will start adding some basic functionality such as generating graphs in xls format, or writing functions for updating many rows, depending on which is easier.

3. Start writing various ideas for extending mysqlslap on blog as well as on lists.mysql.com,irc and obtain inputs from the community
