Description:
I'm compiling mysql-5.1.7.tar.gz by Ubuntu12.04.  

The step is:
 shell> groupadd mysql
     shell> useradd -g mysql mysql
     shell> gunzip < mysql-VERSION.tar.gz | tar -xvf -
     shell> cd mysql-VERSION
     shell> ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql
     shell> make
     shell> make install
     shell> cp support-files/my-medim.cnf /etc/my.cnf
     shell> cd /usr/local/mysql
     shell> bin/mysql_install_db --user=mysql
     shell> chown -R root  .
     shell> chown -R mysql var
     shell> chgrp -R mysql .
     shell> bin/mysqld_safe --user=mysql &

Then I input the command:
./mysql

I wait for a very long time and can not see anything.
Then I check the process:

 ps -A | grep mysqld
22514 ?        00:00:00 mysqld_safe
22541 ?        00:00:00 mysqld

mysqld has started properly.

Has anyone encountered similar problem? what is wrong? 

How to repeat:
when I input ./mysql  , why I can not see anything and just wait. what is wrong?

question2 is :
I need mysql-5.1.7.tar.gz or  mysql-5.1.9.tar.gz, but I can not find them anywhere, who can give me a link to find them, thank you very much!!!

Thank you for the bug report. 5.1.7 it's ancient version so please try the latest version for 5.1:

Thanks

No, I must need the mysql-5.1.7.tar.gz, or mysql-5.1.8.tar.gz, or mysql-5.1.9.tar.gz

I am developing an storage engine, and I need it.

Developing a storage engine against an early pre-release version of a release line (5.1) that already reached the end of its supported life span quite a while ago?

Whatever you're up to, the mailing lists etc. look like a better place to discuss your problems than the bug system ...
