4.2 Systèmes d'exploitation supportés par MySQL

We use GNU Autoconf so it is possible to port MySQL to all modern systems with working Posix threads and a C++ compiler. (To compile only the client code, a C++ compiler is required but not threads.) We use and develop the software ourselves primarily on Sun Solaris (versions 2.5 & 2.6) and to a lesser extent on RedHat Linux 5.0.

MySQL has been reported to compile sucessfully on the following operating system/thread package combinations. Note that for many operating systems, the native thread support works only in the latest versions.

  • AIX 4.x with native threads
  • BSDI 2.x with the included MIT-pthreads package
  • BSDI 3.0, 3.1 and 4.x with native threads
  • DEC UNIX 4.x with native threads
  • FreeBSD 2.x with the included MIT-pthreads package
  • FreeBSD 3.x with native threads
  • HP-UX 10.20 with the included MIT-pthreads package
  • HP-UX 11.x with the native threads.
  • Linux 2.0+ with LinuxThreads 0.7.1 or glibc 2.0.7
  • NetBSD 1.3/1.4 Intel and NetBSD 1.3 Alpha (Requires GNU make)
  • OpenBSD 2.x with the included MIT-pthreads package
  • OS/2 Warp 3, FixPack 29 and OS/2 Warp 4, FixPack 4
  • SGI Irix 6.x with native threads
  • Solaris 2.5, 2.6 and 2.7 with native threads on SPARC and x86
  • SunOS 4.x with the included MIT-pthreads package
  • SCO OpenServer with a recent port of the FSU Pthreads package
  • SCO UnixWare 7.0.1
  • Tru64 Unix
  • Win95, Win98 and NT (the newest version is currently available only for users with a MySQL license or MySQL email support). For those who wish to test before they buy, we have released MySQL 3.21.29 (an older version) as shareware.
