Bug Description

The MySQL server 5.1 in Ubuntu Lucid ships the InnoBase InnoDb plugin in /usr/lib/mysql/plugin/. Though this directory belongs to the MySQL server package it is not allowed by AppArmor. The shipped InnoDb plugin in this directory therefore can only be loaded by adding something like:

/usr/lib/mysql/plugin/ r,
/usr/lib/mysql/plugin/* mr

to

/etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.mysqld

Please note: This is about "InnoDb plugin", not the default InnoDb engine.

This was fixed in maverick's mysql-5.1 in bug 617463. It probably should be considered for an SRU for Lucid.
