MySQL 5.0.75 available

MySQL AB has just made MySQL 5.0.75 available. Even it is just a maintenance release – since the 5.1 branch is now golden – it is now packaged and uploaded to Dotdeb for Etch amd64/i386.

Anyway, if you did not make the jump and still use MySQL 5.0, please upgrade your server, to fix some annoying bugs, fill up some security holes and enhance the overall security of your favorite SGDB. And don’t forget to take a look at the release notes of MySQL 5.0.75.

Hello Guillaume,

I’ve got a problem with aptitude and the dotdeb packages. Every time I try to do a dist-upgrade, aptitude is crying and says:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
mysql-server-5.0: Depends: mysql-client-5.0 (>= 5.0.75-0.dotdeb.0) but it is not installable

The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

Keep the following packages at their current version:
mysql-client-5.0 [5.0.75-0.dotdeb.0 (, now)]
mysql-client-5.1 [Not Installed]
mysql-server [5.0.75-0.dotdeb.0 (, now)]
mysql-server-5.1 [Not Installed]

I’m trying to resolve this, but after accepting a solution, nothing seems to change and aptitude is nagging me again: The following packages are BROKEN…

What can I do?

@MrFoo : please try to use dselect to fine-tune your choice of packages :
Freeze your MySQL packages while you update all the other packages, then choose to update mysql-server-5.0 and mysql-client-5.0 together, excluding metapackages and mysql-*-5.1 packages.

I checked that they’re both available and everything is fine :

I has no problem doing this on my boxes.

Unfortunately I never did this before – could you please provide me the required steps?

I think other people with the same problem would be thankful for a little step by step too.
