MySQL Internals Manual


4.1 CMake Prerequisites

To build MySQL from source with CMake, these prerequisites must be satisfied:

  • CMake version 2.6.3 or later

  • Unix: Compiler and make utility, curses dev package on Linux

  • Windows: Visual Studio (Express version is okay)

  • Mac OS X: Xcode tools

  • All platforms: bison, unless you build from a source package where bison output is already provided. On OpenSolaris/Solaris Express, you must install m4 in addition to bison. On Windows, install bison into a directory whose path name does not contain spaces, not into the default location. (Reason: this bug in bison 2.4.1.)
