Building XtraDB on Windows

Monday, February 6th, 2012

As you may or may not know, Windows is not yet a supported platform for XtraDB.

I thought I’d try to build it, and see what happens:

  1. Download XtraDB 5.5 Source
  2. cd C:\xtradb-5.5
  3. mkdir bld
  4. cd bld
  5. cmake ..
  6. VS08: File -> Open -> Solution -> C:\xtradb-5.5\bld\MySQL.sln

Build Ended With:

========== Build: 70 succeeded, 17 failed, 2 up-to-date, 10 skipped ==========

The first failure had to do with innobase:

18>Generating Code...
18>Build log was saved at "file://c:\..\innobase.dir\Debug\BuildLog.htm"
18>innobase - 9 error(s), 3 warning(s)

I checked the innobase build log and found this:

sql_prepare.cc
..\sql_prepare.cc(2199) : error C3861: 'gettimeofday': identifier not found
..\sql_prepare.cc(2232) : error C3861: 'gettimeofday': identifier not found
..\sql_prepare.cc(2639) : error C3861: 'gettimeofday': identifier not found
..\sql_prepare.cc(2672) : error C3861: 'gettimeofday': identifier not found
..\sql_prepare.cc(2808) : error C3861: 'gettimeofday': identifier not found
..\sql_prepare.cc(2848) : error C3861: 'gettimeofday': identifier not found
..\sql_prepare.cc(2940) : error C3861: 'gettimeofday': identifier not found
..\sql_prepare.cc(2973) : error C3861: 'gettimeofday': identifier not found
...
sql_parse.cc
..\sql_parse.cc(5750) : error C3861: 'gettimeofday': identifier not found
..\sql_parse.cc(5827) : error C3861: 'gettimeofday': identifier not found

The ‘gettimeofday’ function is a Unix-only (i.e., there is no direct analog of the gettimeofday() in Windows) .. more details here.

So, this part of the code has simply not been ported to Windows yet.

I got to looking, and it is a reported bug already:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/percona-server/+bug/737895
https://bugs.launchpad.net/percona-patches/+bug/421925
https://bugs.launchpad.net/percona-patches/+bug/390156

But, do not worry. If you want to take advantage of the InnoDB enhancements found in XtraDB on Windows, you can simply use MariaDB.

There are pre-built MariaDB binaries for Windows, and MariaDB contains XtraDB+ (which is XtraDB plus some additional enhancements on top of it).
