I was trying to create the unix odbc driver from your connector/odbc source code. I downloaded the 5.19 package. When build, as mentioned at BUILD.unix file, the first step is to run the configure. However, the configure file itself is not there. Thus, cannot build.

How to repeat:
download the connector/odbc source code from your web site, do gunzip and tar. You will not see the configure file.

Suggested fix:
please add the configure file into the package.

Hi Jihong,

Thanks for reporting this issue in Connector/ODBC.
Actually, it is the documentation problem since the configure script has been replaced by cmake generators.

The appropriate documentation is being prepared. Soon the online manuals should be updated.

I am changing the category of this report to "MySQL Connector/ODBC (MyODBC) -> Documentation".

So, how do we build from source?  This may be an ignorant question, but the documentation does not mention cmake at this point.

As the autoconf process has been replaced with the cmake process for building the Connector/ODBC from source, the two sections in the Connector/ODBC manual,  http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/connector-odbc-installation-source-unix.html and http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/connector-odbc-installation-source-development.html, have been updated with the appropriate information.
