Thread: MySQL Workbench update on 11.3

  1. #1

    Default MySQL Workbench update on 11.3

    I'm running OpenSuse 11.3 which comes with MySQL Workbench V 5.12.16-8.2. This version hangs on connections and has several other behavior problems that others have reported. For several reasons, I need 5.2+ .

    As a relatively new regular user of OpenSuse, I've learned that it's much better for me if I work within the package environment (read: I've made mistakes and am willing to learn) so I'm reluctant to try to just load the Suse rpm off the MySQL.org site.

    So:
    1. is there a more recent release of Workbench in a repository I've not found yet?
    2. if not, what's the safest way to install this as an rpm that will not impact the rest of the package management system?

    Thanx for all your help and interest.

    Thanx,
    Lew

    Any clue about where to get libmysqlcppconn4? I looked at official and unofficial areas and in checking on google, I see where others have had the same problem but find nothing that "fixes" the error or gets workbench working.

    Help?

    Looks as if it is only available as a .deb at the moment; so you will need to get the .deb package and use alien to convert it to an .rpm. Then get YaST to install the rpm before you reinstall Workbench.

    Well, I know that it's all about UNSTABLE and unsupported and all that
    but, when I tried to install it, YAST complained about missing:
    libmysqlcppconn4

    Not surprisingly, when I installed it anyway, it had prolbems with
    making connectings. linking to other versions of the connection
    libraries, I still get errors.

    Hi
    Looks like there are issues with the building...

    Suggest you contact the maintainer under the 'Actions' dropdown.

    YUK!! and likely to create more issues. IMHO there is an issue with the
    package and needs to have a bug reported against it.

    I found the package:
    mysql-workbench-gpl-5.2.29-1suse113.i586.rpm

    on the mysql.org download page and it seem to have loaded and runs ok. I don't have time today to figure out how to file a bug report at this moment but wanted to let you know what I found. If I find this breaks something else, I will, reply back on this thread.

    Thanx,
    Lew
