Issues with ignore-db-dir

Hello, I see that the ignore-db-dir option has been available since Maria 5.3.9 ( ) , however I am finding that MariaDB 5.5.27 is not recognizing the option. When I put "ignore-db-dir=lost+found" in the mysqld section of the my.cnf file or when I attempt to start mysqld with "/etc/init.d/mysql start --ignore-db-dir=lost+found", both times mysql fails to start with the following message:

130111 17:08:57 [ERROR] /usr/sbin/mysqld: unknown variable 'ignore-db-dir=lost+found'
130111 17:08:57 [ERROR] Aborting

Is there a patch that I was supposed to apply but haven't ? Or maybe I am misunderstanding how or where to specify the ignore-db-dir option.

For reference, the full version as reported by mysqld is:

$ mysqld --version
mysqld  Ver 5.5.27-MariaDB for Linux on x86_64 (MariaDB Server)

Thanks, -Said


This is not very surprising, because 5.3.9 (see was released on 02 Oct 2012, while 5.5.27 ( was released on 07 Sep 2012. Upgrade to at least 5.5.28, to have this feature in 5.5
