MySQL 5.5 is in GA since 3 years, so it should be stable in Gentoo by now.
Please don't mark this version as a stable. Please look at http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=69623 , I'm also hitted by this bug. I had to downgrade mysql to older version. Probably 5.5.33 could be better candidate for stable.
Where did you see that i was hit by a bug ?
I'm using MySQL 5.5.32 without any issue.
I'm simply requesting a 5.5 stable mysql.
And what you're describing isn't a bug but a documented limitation.
I've used word "also" in context of mysql bug, I didn't mean we both are affected by mentioned bug.
Added a changelog entry for 5.5.33, 5.6.13, 5.7.2:
"InnoDB would fail to open a tablespace that has multiple data files."
So this, ekhm, "limitations" wasn't known when version 5.5.32 was relased. Imho it is documented bug. (When some software looses its 80% of capabilities and it's documented you still would call it as "limitations"?). I don't want to start flame, I just want to call attention there is serious issue in this version of mysql. And I'm voting to not mark this version as a stable.
Sorry, i read your answer too quickly :)
Well, a stable 5.3.33 would be good for me too, as long as it's a 5.5.
