When I startup mysql on my unbuntu server I will get a message.
121122 17:39:37 [Note] Plugin 'FEDERATED' is disabled. 121122 17:39:37 InnoDB: The InnoDB memory heap is disabled 121122 17:39:37 InnoDB: Mutexes and rw_locks use GCC atomic builtins 121122 17:39:37 InnoDB: Compressed tables use zlib 220.127.116.11 121122 17:39:37 InnoDB: Initializing buffer pool, size = 128.0M InnoDB: mmap(137363456 bytes) failed; errno 12 121122 17:39:37 InnoDB: Completed initialization of buffer pool 121122 17:39:37 InnoDB: Fatal error: cannot allocate memory for the buffer pool 121122 17:39:37 [ERROR] Plugin 'InnoDB' init function returned error. 121122 17:39:37 [ERROR] Plugin 'InnoDB' registration as a STORAGE ENGINE failed. 121122 17:39:37 [ERROR] Unknown/unsupported storage engine: InnoDB 121122 17:39:37 [ERROR] Aborting 121122 17:39:37 [Note] mysqld: Shutdown complete
a few times I have got a message saying that the plugin is disabled.
I use webmin to configure it. Could that be a problem?
