Compile the server with the InnoDB Memcached plugin and bundled libevent (version 2.0.21 on Ubuntu 15.10):


Run the MTR memcached test suite:

./mtr --mem --suite=memcached

This gives:

mysqltest: At line 48: query 'INSTALL PLUGIN daemon_memcached SONAME 'libmemcached.so'' failed: 1126: Can't open shared library '/home/edahl/bzr/build-trunk-debug/plugin/innodb_memcached/daemon_memcached/libmemcached.so' (errno: 2 /home/edahl/bzr/build-trunk-debug/plugin/innodb_memcached/daemon_memcached/libmemcached.so: undefined symbol: event_base_set)

How to repeat:
As above. 

Maybe related to the existence of two libevent libraries on Ubuntu: libevent.so and libevent_core.so. The missing symbol is in the second library.

Correction: the above says "compiled with bundled libevent" - it should of course be "system libevent".

Noted in 5.8.0 changelog.

Compiling the InnoDB memcached plugin did not work on some platforms
if MySQL was configured using -DWITH_LIBEVENT=system.
