Fix Version/s: None
I'm a maintainer of MariaDB package for Fedora and RH products.
Fedora is cutting-edge OS, adopting new techs and latest software very quickly.
In the latest Fedora - that should be released in may approximatelly - a new version of Jemalloc is being packed.
That version (I believe it is Jemalloc 5), is not backwards compatible, which leads to error in the software later, leading to failing several hundreds of MariaDB testscases and freezing randomly.
So far, two solutions can be adopted.
Either remove TokuDB support - which is not welcomed neither by me nor users, or build TokuDB without Jemalloc - which is not a supported combination. (However proved itself quite stable to use widely)
My feature request is simple:
Please add support for the latest jemalloc
And the questions are following:
Are you aware of this issue?
Have you already been working on it? Any obstacled you encountered?
Would you even want to add this support?
