Does MySQL run better on one distribution versus another? I've had less trouble since I switched from slackware to RHEL.
MySQL should run well on any current Linux distribution, but you should know that MySQL comes with specially built RPM files for Redhat Enterprise Linux 3/4 and SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9.
One of the key factors when choosing a distribution is the presence of a good threading library because MySQL makes extensive use of threads. Many users also report that a 2.6 kernel is a major benefit when running MySQL.
