Installing MySQL GUI Tools Bundle (Bug 28143, 26120)

Posted at Friday, February 22, 2008
I had plenty of problems installing MySQL's GUI Tools Bundle 5.0-r12:

MySQL 5.0 GUI Tools Bundle Downloads

Initially I tried building and compiling from source, but there were so many dependencies, etc. that I opted to install via RPM:

# rpm -ivh mysql-gui-tools-5.0r12-1rhel4.i386.rpm \
mysql-administrator-5.0r12-1rhel4.i386.rpm \
mysql-query-browser-5.0r12-1rhel4.i386.rpm \
mysql-migration-toolkit-5.0r12-1rhel4.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libjvm.so is needed by mysql-migration-toolkit-5.0r12-1rhel4.i386
libjvm.so(SUNWprivate_1.1) is needed by mysql-migration-toolkit-5.0r12-1rhel4.i386
libmysqlclient_r.so.15 is needed by mysql-migration-toolkit-5.0r12-1rhel4.i386
libmysqlclient_r.so.15(libmysqlclient_15) is needed by mysql-migration-toolkit-5.0r12-1rhel4.i386

This, however, fails declaring a Java dependency. It appears as though I am running into the following bugs:

Bug 28143
Bug 26120

To my knowledge, neither of these bugs have been resolved for the version in question. Provided that I don't intend on using the MySQL Workbench, I can install the RPMs by forcing (e.g. --nodeps):

# rpm -ivh --nodeps mysql-gui-tools-5.0r12-1rhel4.i386.rpm \
mysql-administrator-5.0r12-1rhel4.i386.rpm \
mysql-query-browser-5.0r12-1rhel4.i386.rpm \
mysql-migration-toolkit-5.0r12-1rhel4.i386.rpm


The MySQL Query Browser is what I am interested in using, so I test via:

# export DISPLAY=192.168.1.104:0.0
# mysql-query-browser


This launches the mysql-query-browser and I test my connection as follows:
