Bug Description

Compiling on Solaris 10 x86 using gcc fails at sql/ due to lack of strsep on Solaris.

Results from google indicate that strsep does not exist on Solaris.

I am chasing a couple of options, if I get something to work I'll post a follow-up with the solution. The most promising seems to be to provide a replacement strsep.

For clarification:

This appears a problem with Solaris 10. It seems OpenSolaris probably has it now (see

The attached patch allows Solaris 10 to compile 5.1.43 w/the percona patches.

Instead of putting the function in the file as this patch does, I'd suggest creating a compatibility file and putting functions like these in there. I did not have the time to do that, but this at least allows it to compile. Will be testing later tonight.

Note: The fix from is also required to compile.

Development has moved from percona-patches over to Percona Server. We support Solaris with Percona Server and produce binaries for it. I also see some compatibility code in our latest source trees. I am therefor going to close this bug as Invalid as I don't think it applies to current Percona Server. If you can reproduce however, please reopen against percona-server project (click "also affects project" above) and we can work on fixing it.
