MariaDB 5.5 RPM work with mydumper ?

Domas and folks mydumper tool is awesome and I have been using it alot for MariaDB 5.2.x series. But it doesn't work with MySQL 5.5 official rpms as they strip out my_net_read from the RPM builds for MySQL 5.5

See original mydumper bug at

and the RHEL bug

Now Remi repository managed to fix this by exporting my_net_read back into their Remi MySQL 5.5 builds see thread at

Question is, can MariaDB folks do the same for their MariaDB 5.5 RPM builds to ensure mydumper works with MariaDB 5.5 RPMs on RHEL/CentOS 5.x/6.x ?


Answer Answered by Vladislav Vaintroub in this comment.

Well, the reason why my_net_read is not exported is that it is nowhere documented, as such it does not have to be exported by the shared library. If there is a wish to use undocumented internal function, static client library works best for it (something mydumper folks should do in their CMakeLists.txt, in my opinion)
