I wonder whether some encountered this peculiar problem as well or whether I'm simply doing something in the wrong way:
Currently, I am considering to add some custom code to InfiniDB. In order to first check whether the system runs, I compiled version 4.5 from source and set it up as detailed in the installation guide and in the Readme.md on the github page.
The problem is that the InfiniDB engine is not recognized even though I specified it explicitly in the table definition:
CREATE TABLE my_table (col1 int ) ENGINE=InfiniDB;
When I check with "SHOW CREATE TABLE my_table;" the engine is displayed as "MyISAM". The following posts describe the same issue, however, they did not solve my problem:
I double checked whether InfiniDB can run on my system by using the precompiled binaries from the .deb packages. It works with the InfiniDB engine.
The order of compilation is that I first compile InfiniDB Mysql and then InfiniDB. All the dependencies listed on the GitHub page were installed. Is there anything else in terms of libraries/dependencies such that the InfiniDB storage engine can be used?
I am currently using Ubuntu 13.10. Any pointers are greatly appreciated.
