I'm trying to follow the instructions for building MySQL from source. They guide me to a link where I can download the latest GA. I end up at the downloads page, where I can download
mysql-5.6.19-osx10.7-x86_64.tar.gz for my mac, and then untar and unzip.
All good so far. But when I try to
cmake . per the instructions, I get an error saying that it can't find
CMakeLists.txt. Poking around looking for that, I've discovered that the download doesn't come with any actual source code except
.h files. In fact, the download looks like an already-built setup with binaries such as
mysqld already there.
I am probably missing something obvious, but I can't figure out where I'm supposed to get the full source code and the makefile, if not from the links provided under the title, "Installing MySQL Using a Standard Source Distribution". Anyone have an idea?
