Status: Not a Bug Impact on me:
Category:MySQL Administrator Severity:S2 (Serious)
Version:1.0.2b-alpha-linux OS:Linux (Redhat 9)
Assigned to: Alfredo Kojima CPU Architecture:Any

[31 Mar 2004 7:44] Paul Freet
Installed 1.0.2b-alpha-linux release into /opt. Did not compile from source. Execute /opt/mysql-administrator/bin/mysql-administrator and mysql-administrator starts up OK. When I attempt to connect to the MySQL database on localhost, I get a segmentation fault. Using Redhat 9, and MySQL 4.0.18. MySQL has been running successfully for months, CLI interface and other interfaces are flawless. Error is repeatable. Accessing database as root user and no password.

How to repeat:
Connect to MySQL Server Instance on localhost as root user and no password.

Upgraded severity to serious as I cannot use MySQL Administrator without being able to connect to my database.
