Description Dennis Gilmore 2006-04-04 14:37:48 UTC
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:
The MySQL Query Browser is a graphical tool provided by MySQL AB for creating,
executing, and optimizing queries in a graphical environment. Where the MySQL
Administrator is designed to administer a MySQL server, the MySQL Query
Browser is designed to help you query and analyze data stored within your MySQL

Comment 1 Dennis Gilmore 2006-04-05 11:50:43 UTC
Fix  for fc4 it needs a slightly different configure switch 

Comment 2 Mike McGrath 2006-04-06 16:27:35 UTC
Looks good, couple of things.  
- Source0 does not exist:
- %find_lang requres gettext (This prevents a successful mock build)
- Duplicate BuildRequires: openssl-devel is provided by mysql-devel
- Duplicate BuildRequires: libglade2-devel is provided gtkhtml3-devel

Comment 3 Dennis Gilmore 2006-04-06 18:41:14 UTC
It seems mysql  has removed the ability to download directly from them. they   
are forcing you to choose a mirror.  so i chose pair networks  as they are  
listed as one of the two primary mirrors.  
fixed the Build Requires  though i built in mock ok on fc4 and fc5  on both 
X86_64 and i386  

Comment 4 Michel Alexandre Salim 2006-04-12 20:48:06 UTC
It works fine for me on i386, but under x86_64, attempting to actually use a
database causes a segfault:

/usr/bin/mysql-query-browser: line 20: 16829 Segmentation fault      $PRG-bin

Comment 5 Dennis Gilmore 2006-04-12 21:55:57 UTC
hmm  kinda strange.  i have run succesfully on ppc, x86 and x86_64  can you
please get me a strace  of when you load the program.  I may be slow to reply as
im in Australia  on vacation. 

Comment 6 Mike McGrath 2006-04-17 19:30:17 UTC
I was unable to re-create this error on my FC5 box.  Everything seemed fine. 
Michel Alandre Salim: did you happen to notice any errors/warnings when you
compiled the package?

Comment 7 Ville Skyttä 2006-04-26 08:38:48 UTC
FE-NEW -> FE-REVIEW?  Status is already "assigned".

Comment 8 Remi Collet 2006-04-26 08:45:19 UTC
*** Bug 189959 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 9 Mike McGrath 2006-05-02 15:39:29 UTC
Can anyone else re-create this error?  If not I'm going to wipe my 64 machine
with a clean install and try it again.  If it works I'm going to approve this.

Comment 10 Dennis Gilmore 2006-05-05 20:43:04 UTC
im unable to recreate it i just did a select query on a table returning over 
100,000 rows on my x86_64 box 

Comment 11 Mike McGrath 2006-05-06 22:22:47 UTC
Pretty close, under buildrequires you need to add desktop-file-utils.  Without
it this package will fail to build in mock.

Comment 12 Dennis Gilmore 2006-05-07 18:37:18 UTC
i could have sworn i had desktop-file-utils in there. but it is now  thanks:)

mysql-query-browser strace


I'm able to reproduce the segfault on x86_64. It only happens when I try to
connect to remote mysql server. It seems that it fials to find locale
file on my system. Connecting to localhost works ok.

Comment 14 Dennis Gilmore 2006-05-08 17:47:43 UTC
not that it is neccesarily the answer  but what version of mysql  is your 
remote server? AFAIK the mysql tools are intended to support version 4 and 5 
DB's only.  I have version 5 DB's here

Comment 15 Dawid Zamirski 2006-05-08 18:28:30 UTC
I've played a bit with the query browser and first I made the following symlink:

ln -s /usr/share/locale/en_GB/LC_MESSAGES/

just to make sure that it can find the file, but it didn't solve the
problem (still segfault at line 20). I removed the database name in "Default
Schema" field and I was able to connect sucessfully. However when I click on the
database name in the Schemata panel the segfault occurs. The mysql server
version is 4.0.23

Comment 16 Dawid Zamirski 2006-05-08 19:02:36 UTC
Additionally the Windows version of mysql-query-browser (ver: 1.1.20) seems to
work ok with the remote server. 
I have run mysql-query-browser on my FC5 system through gdb with the following

also I found a related bug in mysql bugzilla:

Comment 17 Dennis Gilmore 2006-05-15 19:03:18 UTC
I can reproduce this connecting to a fc3 box  running 
mysql-server-3.23.58-16.FC3.1  but I am unable to reproduce connecting to 
4.1.x or 5.x  servers.

I am going to install 4.0.x on a test box  and see what happens

Comment 18 Adrian Reber 2006-05-17 15:14:51 UTC
This blocks FC-REVIEW and not FE-REVIEW. This seems wrong. So the correct number
to block would be 163778 instead of 188267.

Comment 19 Mike McGrath 2006-05-17 15:35:53 UTC
Sorry bout that.

Comment 20 Mike McGrath 2006-07-01 22:00:01 UTC
Has anyone made any headway on this?

Comment 21 Dennis Gilmore 2006-07-01 23:52:16 UTC
I still havent been able to figure out why it crashes when connecting 64bit 
client to old 32 bit servers.  In my day to day use it works fine.

Comment 22 Mike McGrath 2006-09-15 03:11:45 UTC
Sorry for the delay, I didn't realize this was an upstream bug.  

- Looks good
- Builds in mock
- Matches packaging guidelines
- contains required files
- contains desktop

rpmlint no output for binaries see below

Comment 23 Remi Collet 2006-09-17 06:22:11 UTC
Too late i think....

MySQL does not continue providing update for this tools.

The new bundle "MySQL GUI Tools" provide MySQL Administrator, Query Browser and
Workbench (and FC5 RPM). 

Including the suite in the Extras still a great idea, at least for non i386 arch
and for rawhide.

Comment 24 Dennis Gilmore 2006-09-17 16:09:06 UTC
All built and pushed.

as for MySQL gui tools.  yes i am aware of them  and have started work on 
packaging them.  they have written it to use lua 5.0  we have available lua 
5.1   so i need to learn  whats needed to port it over.  The tarball  for 
mysql-gui-tools contails beta and alpha software. 

But I do intend  to get the whole gammut of mysql auite of tools in.
