Description:
Compiled binaries for 5.1.12 don't have built-in partitioning active.

Using one of the following packages,
mysql-5.1.12-beta-linux-i686-glibc23.tar.gz
mysql-5.1.12-beta-linux-i686-icc-glibc23.tar.gz

check for partitions:

show variables like '%partit%';
+-------------------+-------+
| Variable_name     | Value |
+-------------------+-------+
| have_partitioning | NO    |
+-------------------+-------+

How to repeat:
download and install one of the following packages.
mysql-5.1.12-beta-linux-i686-glibc23.tar.gz
mysql-5.1.12-beta-linux-i686-icc-glibc23.tar.gz

Check if partitions are active
show variables like '%partit%';

Suggested fix:
rebuild the binaries

Also observed on windows 'msi'

This is fixed (= "--with-partition" got added) with 5.1.13-beta for

- All Unix "tar.gz" builds and derived packages (depot, pkg, dmg);

- the "generic" Linux RPMs
  (we do not do "specific" RPMs of MySQL 5.1 yet),

- Windows build (both 32 and 64 bit).

For Netware, there is a change upcoming in the way we build these packages, so nothing is settled there yet.

Noted in 5.1.13 changelog.

Binary distributions of MySQL 5.1.12 were built without support for
partitioning. This has been corrected except for NetWare.
