I am trying to run this SQL statement on openSUSE 11.2 using mysql Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.1.36, for suse-linux-gnu (x86_64) using readline 6.0 and constantly receive this error message.

mysql> select 1 from `emp`,`dep` where `a` <=> (select 1 union select 2) into @`var0`;
ERROR 2013 (HY000): Lost connection to MySQL server during query

I installed the Enterprise version of MySQL by Oracle on a different machine, same version of SUSE, and this works. I don't want to have to purchase there version and from what I can tell it is only one revision off mysql Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.1.46, for unknown-linux-gnu (x86_64) using readline 5.1

Any thoughts or recommendations?
