I think you need to try with MySQL 5.5, MariaDB 5.5 (which I'm using) or Percona 5.5.
Is MySQL5.6 the default now?
I build my own packages, so I don't really care about the defaults because I've defined my own.
See https://www.tnpi.net/support/forums/index.php?topic=1053.0, which has info about that MySQL error you're getting.
