Goal for tomorrow...

Tomorrow's goal is simple: Don't do anything that might cause my instructor to take the controls.

I will fly the glider and show my instructor that I really do know what I'm doing.

Pictures from the visit...

Well Kasia posted about pics of her California visit and conveniently posted the only picture that I'm in before all the others. I'll do her one better and post all the pics I took during our visit to Monterey including the one she's in. (Finding it is left as an exercise for the reader.)

My pictures are available here for your viewing pleasure. Pay special attention to the picture of the Lover's Point Inn. What a fugly building.

Apparently my 3 year old Kodak DC-290 took better pics than her newer DC-4800. Neither of us is sure why. Apparently that's what happens when it is set for long distance shots on a gloomy day.

Anyway, her pics are supposed to appear here soon.

Building MySQL with LinuxThreads on FreeBSD

This has come up a lot recently. I have several messages in my INBOX where people as asking for my secret recipe for properly building MySQL with LinuxThreads on FreeBSD.

I don't have much time right now to explain how I derived this, but here's the relevant piece of the build script I use at work when producing FreeBSD binaries from the MySQL source tree...

This assumes that you've installed the LinuxThreads package from the ports tree. Sorry for the poor formatting, but this should really be one big line:

CFLAGS='-O -pipe -march=pentiumpro -D__USE_UNIX98                \
-I/usr/local/include/pthread/linuxthreads' CXX=cc                \
CC=cc CXXFLAGS='-O -pipe -march=pentiumpro                       \
-D__USE_UNIX98 -D_REENTRANT -D_THREAD_SAFE                       \
-DHAVE_BROKEN_REALPATH -I/usr/local/include/pthread/linuxthreads \
-felide-constructors -fno-rtti -fno-exceptions' ./configure      \
--with-mit-threads=no '--with-comment=Yahoo SMP'                 \
--enable-assembler --with-innodb                                 \
'--with-named-thread-libs=-DHAVE_GLIBC2_STYLE_GETHOSTBYNAME_R    \
-D_THREAD_SAFE -DHAVE_BROKEN_REALPATH                            \
-I/usr/local/include/pthread/linuxthreads -L/usr/local/lib       \
-llthread -llgcc_r' --prefix=$PREFIX --enable-thread-safe-client \
--with-server-suffix='-Yahoo-SMP' --with-libwrap --with-raid     \

The HAVE_BROKEN_REALPATH probably isn't necessary anymore, since the configure script should catch that. But it can't hurt to leave in. That's probably true of several options above.

It's ugly, but It Works For Me(tm) on various versions of FreeBSD 4.x.

I do not have access to a FreeBSD 5.0 box yet, so don't ask me about that. I don't know. Really.

Good luck.
