1. Topic:

The MySQL packages shipped in Red Hat Linux 7 and as updates had bugs which caused the DB engine to return bad results or crash.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.0 - alpha, i386

3. Problem description:

The MySQL packages shipped with Red Hat Linux 7 contained buggy assembler code. When compiled with optimization enabled, this code caused the database server to return bad results. Also, a case where you can crash the database by a specific, valid query has been fixed.

Note that MySQL has updated its client library since the initial version. To deal with compiled applications linked with this library, a new package, mysqlclient9, has been created.

4. Solution:

For all RPMs downloaded for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Uvh mysql*

Because of dependencies the packages must be installed as a group.

After downloading all RPMs needed for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Uvh mysql*

5. Bug IDs fixed ( for more info):

20124 - gcc can't compile mysql on sparc
18905 - MySQL output not the same as the tutorial
18620 - strange values in float type columns

6. RPMs required:
