MariaDB 10

Post by willemgrooters » Fri Sep 16, 2022 12:23 pm

The currrent version of MariaDB on VMS is 5.5 (the basic offfspring of MySQL 5.5) but this is quite out-of-date. Current open source programs often require MariaDB 10, more precise: 10.6. Is there a chance that VSI - or any C/C++ guru - will port this to VMS?
(I have no knowlegde of DB internals or C/C++, so I cannot do this)

According to Mark Berryman in some old comp.os.vms thread then newer MariaDB versions require a newer C++ standard than what the traditional VMS C++ compiler supports, so we have to wait for CLang on VMS x86-64.

Willem,

Generally, Arne is right. Until a newer C++ standard is available on OpenVMS, it is impossible to port MariaDB 10.x. As soon as Clang reaches maturity on OpenVMS, we will definitely look at porting MariaDB 10.

At this point in time I would gladly accept mariadb-5 for no other reason than to install the client software so that I can connect to a remote database (MariaDB or MySQL) from DCL. As I understand it, a C11 compatible C compiler is not required to build mariadb-5

I have reported a couple of bugs on the C compiler. I can't build MariaDB until they are resolved. I'll be trying again once the next update is released.
