MySQL Workbench for RedHat


Hi,

could anybody point out a suitable MySQL Workbench package for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.3 (Tikanga) installed on a 64bit Intel-based system?

Thanks.

Hmm...how about MySQL Workbench?

http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/workbench/5.1.html

Download the source, follow the instructions to compile and run. Or are you looking for a pre-compiled package? You can get that from RedHat's website, since you're paying for access to the RedHat Network...

Yes, I obviously took a look into dev.mysql.com site.
At this point I got 3 options:
- install mysql-workbench-oss-5.2.16-1fc12.x86_64.rpm and hope it is compatible enough with my RHE 5.3
- compile and install mysql-workbench-oss-5.2.16.tar.gz
- search for a valid rpm into Red Hat Network

The 3rd is for sure the "cleanest" one, and I spent some hours yesterday trying to follow instructions on the license papers, but without success. The thing is that I skipped the RH Network connection step during the "welcome" configuration, thinking of doing later, but now I don't seem to be able to do it.
And yes, I'm paying a license and I think I'll pretend some help from the RH support
Thank you anyway.

If you've got license papers, it should be very simple to call RH support. They'll get you up and registered in no time.

Huh...we've got it on a few of our systems here, and I could've sworn we installed from RPM. But I've slept since then, so...

I see... you could have used the RPM for Fedora.. I'm gonna try that first and will let you know.
Cheers
