Installation of mysql with storage plugins on Gentoo

Emerging layman (if you did not have already done this)

  1. Emerge layman (if you don't already have it).
  2. Add Mario's repository to the /etc/layman/layman.cfg file by adding this line:

under the line that starts "overlays :". Then run (as root):

$ sudo layman -f
$ sudo layman -a go-mysql

or you can type

layman -f -a go-mysql -o ''

so you don't have to modify the config file

  1. activate the wanted storage engines bey activating the needed useflag

Don't activate innodb and xtradb at the same time

$ echo "dev-db/mysql big-tables extraengine profiling cluster pbxt pbms revision soliddb innodb xtradb filesystem sphinx spider" > /etc/portage/package.use/mysql
  1. emerge the programm you want to use
    $ emerge -av dev-db/mysql
