I was hoping to get a MySQL cluster up and running on 12.04, but for some reason, the package is marked deleted, and there is no alternative. I also trying searching for the ndb_mgm command, and there are no suggested packages.

Did it get yanked for a licensing reason? compatibility?

Is there any way to run a cluster on Precise short of building from sources? Does that even work?

It was deleted because it was not being actively maintained. See Launchpad Bug #921152.

Building from source should work because the package wasn't removed for FTBFS ("failure to build from source") -- it was removed for quality reasons.

There is an easier option: the pages saying "deleted" for the client and server also contain links to deb files for the packages, which are still available and can be installed via dpkg.

Before installing, use dpkg -I package.deb | grep Depends to find out the dependencies and then install them first using apt-get.

Thanks! I ended up grabbing the binaries from Oracle, and they seem to be doing the trick. –  Bryan Agee Jun 11 '12 at 21:35
