[Wiki] For those with crash prolems when logging in with Debian 6...


Recommended Posts

in Debian 6 default sources.list, using apt-get to grab MySQLwill give you version 5.1.63. There is a known bug in this version and can cause crashes to the server after logging in. It will crash right after selecting the realm from the realm selection screen. The solution is to upgrade MySQL.

Thanks to Zuse for the link

For those of you lazy like myself... here's the info on that page.

1. Add these two lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list file (you can also choose a mirror near you) :

deb http://packages.dotdeb.org squeeze all

deb-src http://packages.dotdeb.org squeeze all

2. (Optional) if you want to install PHP 5.4 on Debian 6.0 “Squeeze”, add these two lines too :

deb http://packages.dotdeb.org squeeze-php54 all

deb-src http://packages.dotdeb.org squeeze-php54 all

3. Then fetch the appropriate GnuPG key

wget http://www.dotdeb.org/dotdeb.gpg

cat dotdeb.gpg | sudo apt-key add -

4. Run apt-get update

5. You should now be able to use the Dotdeb packages with apt-get (or dselect, or aptitude as well…)

Also, I noticed you may have to manually install the other stuffs. This is the command I used (assuming you did not do the php5 part):

apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev mysql-client mysql-server

When I ran this, I got an error, so had to run:

apt-get -f install

this all worked.
