Building MariaDB 5.3 on Windows

Friday, February 10th, 2012

I just wanted to share my steps for building MariaDB 5.3 on Windows. (Note, this is not much different than the instructions Wlad posted here).

But, things are not always so smooth, and of course I ran into a couple small issues, so I wanted to share my outputs plus those issues and their solutions (once again many thanks go to Wlad!) for those out there who might encounter the same.

Here are the steps to build:

  1. Download MariaDB 5.3 and extracted to C:\mariadb-5.3
  2. cd C:\mariadb-5.3
  3. mkdir bld
  4. cd bld
  5. cmake .. -G "Visual Studio 9 2008"
  6. cmake --build . --config relwithdebinfo --target package

* By making a sub-dir named ‘bld’ and cd’ing into it, you’ll keep all of your build files in their own dir. This way, it is easy to start over (just delete /bld/) and it also keeps your sourcedir clean and looking like it does originally.

** The last command is the build command issued from the command line. You could accomplish the same with the following commands from within Visual Studio:

VS2008: File -> Open -> Solution -> C:\mariadb-5.3\bld\MySql.sln
VS2008: Build -> Build Solution
VS2008: Right-click "PACKAGE" -> Build

..

Outputs:

C:\Users\Chris>cd C:\mariadb-5.3

C:\mariadb-5.3>mkdir bld

C:\mariadb-5.3>cd bld

I first compiled from within Visual Studio (alternate step #6), and here is the last line of that output:

(More on the 1 error below – but it’s safe to ignore.)

And here is the output from the command line compilation (since I did this second, there was not nearly the output, so I ‘ll post it all):

Error Appendix:

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.

CMake – General Comment:

If you have previously installed Visual Studio 2005 and now have installed Visual Studio 2008 (or 2008 and 2010, or some other mix), it is probably best to specify the Generator when invoking cmake. I was getting various strange errors when I did not specify the generator of the Visual Studio I use to compile. Specifically, my cmake was using the VS2005 generator, but I was building with VS2008. So, I had to perform a conversion when opening the solution in VS, not to mention some other starange issues were occurring (saying I passed MFC test, but I was using VS2008 Express, so I did not have the proper MFC for VS2008). Similarly, cmake using relwithdebinfo failed too.

Solution:

Instead of using:

cmake ..

Use:

cmake .. -G "Visual Studio 9 2008"

If you’re not sure what string to use for -G, simply run “cmake” from the command line, with no arguments, and it will display the various available options. For instance:

C:\>cmake
cmake version 2.8.7
...
Generators
The following generators are available on this platform:
  Visual Studio 10            = Generates Visual Studio 10 project files.
  Visual Studio 11            = Generates Visual Studio 11 project files.
  Visual Studio 8 2005        = Generates Visual Studio .NET 2005 project
  Visual Studio 9 2008        = Generates Visual Studio 9 2008 project files.

Build – afxwin.h missing error – mysql_upgrade_wizard error:

VS2008 Build ..
...
11>Build log was saved at "file://c:\mariadb-5.3\bld\win\upgrade_wizard\
11>mysql_upgrade_wizard.dir\Debug\BuildLog.htm"

..
c:\mariadb-5.3\win\upgrade_wizard\stdafx.h(23) : fatal error C1083:
Cannot open include file: 'afxwin.h': No such file or directory

Solution:

Since this is just the mysql_upgrade_wizard, this can be ignored unless you specifically need this.

Otherwise, locate ‘afxwin.h’ and store it to the correct location.

Note that you’re likely receiving this if you using the Visual Studio Express Edition, as ‘afxwin.h’ is not available in the Express Edition, as described on the following pages:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5543523/afxwin-h-file-is-missing-in-vc-express-edition

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

Friday, January 20th, 2012

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 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:

http://www.chriscalender.com/?p=798

..

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.

Hope this helps :)

 
 

MySQL Windows Users – Use Grep to Search MySQL Source Code

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

For Windows users, if you try searching the MySQL source code for various strings, you know you will often come up empty with the built-in Windows search.

It wasn’t too long ago and I was searching the source for “MALLOC_OVERHEAD”. My Windows search came up empty, and someone suggested I try grep for Windows.

Well, I downloaded it, extracted it to the location I wanted, and added the .exe to the $PATH.

Now I can grep away!

See the new results when searching for “MALLOC_OVERHEAD”:

C:\mysql-5.5\mysql-5.5>grep -r "MALLOC_OVERHEAD" .
./client/mysql.cc:   (longlong) 2*1024L*1024L*1024L, MALLOC_OVERHEAD, 1024, 0},

./storage/myisam/myisampack.c:static uint tree_buff_length= 65536 - MALLOC_OVERHEAD;

 

Unlike the Windows search, which simply returns the file name, this shows the file name *and* the full line of code, therefore sometimes answering my question without even needing to examine the source code.

This full search of the source code (which I had stored in C:\mysql-5.5\mysql-5.5) took only about 2 minutes. This is not bad (and certainly not worse than the Windows search), not to mention there’s no need to index your system, nor build/store the resulting several-GB-search-index-file, aka windows.edb).

Personally, I use the ‘GnuWin32′ grep for Windows, available from SourceForge:

http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/grep.htm

I’m sure there are others, but I’ve had great success using many of the GnuWin32 utilities available for Windows.

Happy grepping! :)
