Bug Description

Hi there, no debug symbols packages are available for mysql-server. Neither a mysql-server-dbg package is available or mysql-server-dbgsym from

According to xnox in #ubuntu-devel:

12:32 < xnox> there was a bug about it or something somewhere
12:32 < xnox> mattrae: basically the buildsystem unconditionally strips them /
builds without them.

I've attempted 2 methods that work with other packages but not mysql.

steps from here

apt-get install devscripts fakeroot
apt-get build-dep mysql-server
export DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="debug nostrip noopt"
fakeroot apt-get source -b mysql-server

and with pbuilder, building packages after installing pkg-create-dbgsym in the pbuilder chroot:

apt-get source mysql-server
pbuilder create --debootstrapopts --variant=buildd
pbuilder --update --extrapackages pkg-create-dbgsym
pbuilder build mysql-5.5_5.5.24-0ubuntu0.12.04.1.dsc
