MySQL 5.5 Windows Build Appendix : Full Outputs and Common Errors from Building MySQL 5.5 on Windows

The other day, I posted a “how-to” article for building MySQL 5.5 on Windows from the source code tree.

In an attempt to keep the post as brief as possible, I omitted many outputs, as well as a number of common bugs/problems one could encounter, and so I just wanted to follow-up with some of that in this “appendix” of sorts.

This way, folks who run into any issues might find solutions to those problems here.

I’ll start with the outputs first, followed by the common problems.

Outputs (When works as expected):

Error Section:

..

Error Connecting to Launchpad via Bazaar (bzr):

C:>bzr branch lp:mysql-server/5.5 mysql-5.5

Connected (version 2.0, client Twisted)
Authentication (publickey) failed.
bzr: ERROR: Connection error: Unable to authenticate to SSH host as
  chriscalender@bazaar.launchpad.net
supported auth types: ['publickey']

Solution:

If you encounter the above, then likely you’ve selected the wrong key or it’s not correct. See this page for even further details.

..

CMake Errors:

Signtool.exe Error:

CMake Error at cmake/install_macros.cmake:155 (MESSAGE):
  signtool is not found.  Signing executables not possible
-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

Solution:

In my case, I searched my computer and had a signtool.exe, just not in a location that was in the $PATH, so I added that tool to the $PATH.

..

Stdint.h not found Error:

-- Looking for stdint.h
-- Looking for stdint.h - not found

Solution:

You can download stdint.h from here, and then save it to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\include\.

Before re-running CMake again, you should delete CMakeCache.txt.

..

CMAKE_HAVE_PTHREAD_H not found Error:

-- Looking for include files CMAKE_HAVE_PTHREAD_H
-- Looking for include files CMAKE_HAVE_PTHREAD_H - not found.

Solution:

This is a known bug, but harmless on Windows, so you can ignore it.

..

CMake TIME_T_UNSIGNED Failed Error:

-- Performing Test TIME_T_UNSIGNED
-- Performing Test TIME_T_UNSIGNED - Failed

Solution:

This is also a known bug, but it can also be safely ignored.

..

CMakeLists.txt Location Error:

CMake Error: The source directory "C:/build/mysql-5.5" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.

Solution:

You’re in the wrong directory, ‘cd’ to the location where CMakeLists.txt resides.

..

CMake – Cannot find source file “cmake_dummy.cc”:

cmake ..
...
Cannot find source file "cmake_dummy.cc"

Solution:

Upgrading CMake from 2.6 (2.6.4) to 2.8 (2.8.7) worked and eliminated this error. You can download it from here.

..

Build / Compile Errors:

..

Visual Studio 2005 Errors:

If you try to compile MySQL 5.5 with VS 2005, you’ll likely see tons of syntax errors (I won’t post them all here). While you can use VS 2005 for building MySQL 5.1 and MariaDB 5.1, you’ll need to use VS 2008 to build MySQL 5.5.

..

m4: Invalid argument Error:

4>------ Build started: Project: GenServerSource, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------
4>Generating sql_yacc.cc, sql_yacc.h
4>C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\bin\bison.exe: m4: Invalid argument
4>Project : error PRJ0019: A tool returned an error code from "Generating sql_yacc.cc, sql_yacc.h"

Solution:

Installing this to a location with no spaces should help. However, I did that and still had problems. The only way I found to move past this (at least for now) is to copy the file to $BUILD-DIR/sql/ (specifically, in this case, C:\mysql-5.5\mysql-5.5\sql\). After that, and after deleting CMakeCache.txt (in $BUILD/), I could finally move past this error.

I have subsequently resolved this m4 issue fully, so there is no need to copy this file. You can read the full details on that here:

Building PACKAGE NSIS Error:

1>Performing Post-Build Event...
1>CPack Error: Cannot find NSIS registry value. This is usually caused by NSIS not being installed.
1>Please install NSIS from http://nsis.sourceforge.net
1>CPack Error: Cannot initialize the generator NSIS
1>Project : error PRJ0019: A tool returned an error code from "Performing Post-Build Event..."

Solution:

Installing NSIS (per the instructions) resolved this error.
