I'm having a lot of trouble at work with this issue - could really use some help!
We have a Linux box running CentOS 5.6 with MySQL running on it. We use a custom built tool to populate the MySQL database with information that comes in. I need to be able to install MySQL workbench to easily view/query this data. But I'm having trouble finding a version of MySQL workbench that will install cleanly on my system. The newest version seems to be built for CentOS 6 and is not backward compatible with the version of CentOS that we are running at work.
I'm using the archives here http://downloads.mysql.com/archives.php
and I've tried a half dozen different versions, but each time I attempt to install, I get a bunch of dependency errors, and I'm just not familiar enough with Linux to figure out the best way to move forward. Is there a version that should work cleanly? Or do I need to track down each dependency? I read the 'before you post guide' and maybe I'm just not getting the correct version for my distro? I'm just not sure.
A couple notes on our setup, the network is isolated from any outside connectivity - so the Linux box can't access the internet. Also, we are unable to upgrade to a newer version of CentOS because we are limited to an approved software list which at this time hasn't approved anything above CentOS 5.x
Thanks as always for helping a struggling guy out!
