Thanks, i've already seen this (exactly http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/upgrading-from-4-1.html), but i was willing to hear experiences from someone that actually did the upgrade.
I would be interested as well. But I'm affraid the buildservice packages for SLES9 don't have many users, given that two months ago they didn't exist. You'll probably be the first one! ;-)
Probably i'll copy the datafiles (as soon as i get the needed space) to a vmware installation and try to update mysql or probably reinstall it (rpm -e mysql/rpm -i mysql-5.blah).
For production i would like to wait for 5.1 as i'm interested on using table partitions (there's an ugly +60GB table around). Have any idea when it's going to be released (and added to Build Service)?
I'll report back the result of my tests.
