Status: Not a Bug Impact on me:
Category:MySQL Workbench Preview Severity:S1 (Critical)
Version:1.0.0-alpha OS:Linux (Linux fedora core 4 x86_64)
Assigned to: Alfredo Kojima CPU Architecture:Any

[17 Jan 2006 12:16] Olivier Clavel
Linux fedora core 4 x86_64 running on and amd64

Since I could not run the precompiled binaries, I tried to compile workbench myself.

tar zxf mysql-workbench-1.0.0-alpha-linux.tar.gz
cd mysql-workbench-1.0.0/mysql-workbench/

The build exits with the error:

 *** No rule to make target `../../../mysql-gui-common/source/linux/libwbcommongui.a', needed by `mysql-workbench-bin'.  Stop.

It also fires some warnings about symbols being redefined.

I'm attaching the complete output of the make command

How to repeat:
./configure & make

 at this moment we do not process bugs of mysql workbench, because it's still
in the intensive development, and we provided snapshot in order to give people
first implression of WB. 

I am changing status to 'Analyzing' and return to this bugreport when WB will be
issued officially.

I also have obtained this error on CentOS 4.2, after many many hours of getting to compile. This is necessary because the binary just don't work.

If we can't get help on a developing product that you have built yourself, perhaps we could get the actual source that was used to build the release binary so we could reproduce.

mysql-gui-common needs to be built with --enable-canvas --enable-grt   for usage with the workbench. We're working on a building instructions page at:  http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/Building_MySQL_GUI_Tools_on_Linux
