I use mysql on most of my machines. I haven't had problems since I
patched it to support thread mutexes and the patch was included in the
main mysql package set from the maintainer. I'm working on getting that
patch into upstream source as well. Give it a shot now...should work with

Hehehehe...yeah, IA64 and sparc64 have helped, as have we with patches and
such. I doubt absolutely everything will be 64-bit clean in a few years,
but I suspect most things will be once AMD's Hammer series makes writing
64-bit clean code a fashionable thing to do.
