Description:
MySQL 5.5.12 doesn't compile with the GCC 4.1.2, the 'make' command fails with an error as follows:
[ 84%] Building CXX object sql/CMakeFiles/sql.dir/mysqld.cc.o
/root/workspace/mysql-5.5.11/sql/mysqld.cc: In function ‘void handle_connections_sockets()’:
/root/workspace/mysql-5.5.11/sql/mysqld.cc:5213: error: invalid conversion from ‘size_socket*’ to ‘socklen_t*’
/root/workspace/mysql-5.5.11/sql/mysqld.cc:5213: error:   initializing argument 3 of ‘int accept(int, sockaddr*, socklen_t*)’
/root/workspace/mysql-5.5.11/sql/mysqld.cc:5280: error: invalid conversion from ‘int*’ to ‘socklen_t*’
/root/workspace/mysql-5.5.11/sql/mysqld.cc:5280: error:   initializing argument 3 of ‘int getsockname(int, sockaddr*, socklen_t*)’
make[2]: *** [sql/CMakeFiles/sql.dir/mysqld.cc.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [sql/CMakeFiles/sql.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2 

How to repeat:
These are the environment details:
User, used for the compile, make, install and test-suite run: root
S/w versions:
Centos 5.5 (32bit Final)
CMake 2.8.4
GCC (C++) 4.1.2
GNU Make 3.81

Here are the details for re-creation of the error:
1. Download the code to the folder structure mentioned.
2. Run 'cmake .' in the /usr/local/mysql-5.5.12 directory
3. run 'make .', this would fail with the error in the Description 

Suggested fix:
Make the pre-requisite GCC version as 4.4 (and above) or the most suitable as per the updates of MySQL.

Make the change on this page, http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/source-installation.html or add another page for ver 5.5

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/source-installation.html probably needs updating. It still mentions gcc 3.2, that is obviously wrong.

P.S. gcc 4.2.1 on Mac works for all MySQL versions.

This is about compilation error on 32 bit. GCC 4.1.2 works fine for me on RHEL5 64 bit. Probably the socket_size check is wrong or something like that.

I updated the manual with these "known to work" GCC versions:

5.0, 5.1: GCC 3.6.4
5.5+: GCC 4.2.1

Please send me the URL for the reference manual page that changed, as I don't see the changes on the original page:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/source-installation.html
[9 Jun 2011 22:26] Paul Dubois
It's the same URL, but you won't see the change until the documentation rebuilds and has been published.

While manual fix-related part of this report is clear now, we may still have problem in server code here (as pointed out by Vladislav). 

Please, log the output of "cmake ." and send the log (and CMakeCache.txt file) to this bug report to clarify what's wrong with SOCKET_SIZE_TYPE check.
[14 Jun 2011 14:14] Paul Dubois
Unassigning from myself; it's no longer a docs bug.
[14 Jun 2011 14:38] Davi Arnaut
The log files are in the subdirectory CMakeFiles:

CMakeFiles/CMakeError.log and CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log

(These are the cmake equivalent of autoconf's config.log)
[20 Jun 2011 15:46] Naveen Shetty
Anything required from my end ?
[20 Jun 2011 16:02] Valeriy Kravchuk
We need content of CMakeFiles/CMakeError.log and CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log after the failed compilation.
