Compiling MariaDB on Beaglebone Black

To compile MariaDB 10.0.16 on Debian GNU/Linux 7.8 (wheezy) at Beaglebone Black (based on “generic build instructions“):

  • Download the sources of MariaDB from here
  • You need install libncurses5-dev (“apt-get install libncurses5-dev”)
  • Also install cmake (“apt-get install cmake”)
  • Possibly you need a swap file, use this guide
  • Decompress the source of MariaDB and run “cmake -DWITHOUT_MROONGA_STORAGE_ENGINE=1” to avoid this problem
  • If all it is ok run “make”, when it finish run “make install”
  • Prepare coffee and make some other stuff like biking or eat cookies 😛
