Mysql Cluster with Mysql 5.1 on Ubuntu Server 9.10

We're currently implementing memcached on mysql cluster using mysql 5.1. So, to make it quick, i followed a guide from howtoforge written by Peter Okupski in this site. It works for me.

There are several things need to be concerned before implementing this guide on ubuntu server 9.10.
  1. Don't install mysql-server5.1 from the repository using apt-get.
    For me, it's easier to install mysql cluster by using source code in ubuntu. Source code can be downloaded form mysql site. On 'select platform' option, choose 'source code' and download the tar file mysql-cluster-gpl-[version].tar.gz
    (Note: register, it is free!)

  2. Install build-essential package to allow compiling source file
    $ sudo apt-get install build-essential

  3. Install developer's library for ncurses
    $ sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev

    This will avoid an error:
    configure error: No curses/termcap library found
Now, it's ready :-)
