I am compiling mysql-5.1.9-beta.tar.gz source code under Ubuntu12.04, my steps are following:

1 tar -xzf mysql-5.1.9-beta.tar.gz

2 cd /home/gaoyu/mysql-5.1.9-beta
3 ./configure --prefix=/home/gaoyu/mysql-5.1.9 --with-debug
4 sudo make
5 sudo make install
6 sudo cp /home/gaoyu/mysql-5.1.9-beta/support-files/my-medium.cnf /etc/my.cnf
7 cd /home/gaoyu/mysql-5.1.9
8 bin/mysql_install_db --user=mysql
9 sudo cp /home/gaoyu/mysql-5.1.9-beta/support-files/mysql.server /etc/init.d/mysql
10 sudo bin/mysqld_safe --user=mysql &

The bug is :
gaoyu@FlashGroup:~/mysql-5.1.9$ sudo bin/mysqld_safe --user=mysql &
[1] 26196
gaoyu@FlashGroup:~/mysql-5.1.9$ nohup: ignoring input and redirecting stderr to stdout
Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /home/gaoyu/mysql-5.1.9/var
^C        (.....here I wait for a very longtime, so I must press Ctrl + C to stop it and continue)
gaoyu@FlashGroup:~/mysql-5.1.9$ bin/mysql
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

after I input sudo bin/mysqld_safe --user=mysql & , I must wait for a very long time, why??
Segmentation fault(core dumped) ,what is wrong?
Has anyone encountered similar
problem? what is wrong?

How to repeat:
How to resolve the problem? please do not tell and urge me "You should choose the lastest version of 5.1, such as mysql-5.1.68 and so on". I need to compile mysql-5.1.9-beta.tar.gz. Thank you!

Starive, I don't want to sound mean, but you're wasting time reporting bugs on this 5.1.9 and such old versions.  We do not fix any old versions anyway.  All fixes that might happen will be done in next release.

I know you're trying to write storage engine, but that can be done on a version such as 5.5.30 and 5.6.10 also.

But I have some special requirment in the software developing . What you mean is I may never succeed in compiling mysql-5.1.9.tar.gz. Is that right!

What I mean is bugs.mysql.com is not the right place to pursue problems about it. 

Perhaps folks in http://forums.mysql.com/list.php?117 will be able to assist you better (but I expect they tell you same thing...)
