Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've never done anything with mysql, but I'm guessing you probably need gtk-2.x. It doesn't seem to like glib headers. Try reading up on compile time dependencies (different from run-time dependencies often) and make sure you have not configured it --with-something-you-haven't-got
I have a feeling I had this same problem and traced it to having AlienBob's Multilib GCC installed, I "upgraded" these back to the originals and then the compilation completed, once the package was installed I re-installed the multilib compilers. The package works fine, if you need I can upload a copy somewhere
Yes, I always use the script from slackbuild.org. Actually, I had some similar problem compiling the libglademm, but then I downloaded the tgz package and installed it successfully.
I also have the multilib gccs from AliebBob installed. Will try later today without them to see how it goes.
Location: Northeastern Michigan, where Carhartt is a Designer Label
Distribution: Slackware 32- & 64-bit Stable
I'm not sure exactly when the light popped on in my head but I finally noticed that "This requires blah, blah, blah" in SlackBuilds.org packages are in the order that you need to build and install them (I'd been building things in alphabetic order -- just because -- and kept having problems that got fixed by simply doing them in the order presented). Yeah, there's probably some note somewhere that tells you that but I have a bad habit of just jumping in and going for it that's been difficult for me to break.
I'd been thinking of trying MySQL Workbench for some time and your post triggered me to finally jump in and build the package and, step-by-step, I did that with no problems. I did choose wxGTK rather than wxPython (you have to choose one or the other; there's a note about interference between the two). This in straight-stock Slackware 13.37 64-bit (and sometime today I'm going to build in Slackware 13.37 32-bit on the machine I mainly use as a MySQL -- and PostgreSQL, too -- data base server). When I say straight-stock I mean a full install and the only thing I add is jdk from the extra directory on the DVD and any patches as they become available; the rest is, oh, src2pkg, VirtualBox, a few SlackBuilds here and there, LibreOffice.org (now, instead of OpenOffice.org) and that's pretty much that.
Yes, I'm using multilib. Yesterday I installed back the gcc from DVD, but I got the same errors. Then I installed the multilib gcc again, and I was able to compile the libglademm, but I got some different error at building the mysql workbench packages. I don't remeber exactly, but it was something about libstdc++. Then I uninstalled all the compat32 packages, and I managed to brake the whole OS, so I had to reinstall it. Then on the newly installed Slackware64 (without the multilib and any other installed packages) I installed the required libraries that I built earlier but I got the same gdk error when I tried to compile the mysql workbench.
Oh dear, doesn't sound like you're having much fun with this. I remember having similar problems but managed to compile it somehow, anyway heres a link to the slackpkg I used. If you have all the requirements installed you should be able to just install this pkg and then it will work (hopefully) if not it's simple to uninstall. Good luck. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/31226650/mys...6_64-2_SBo.tgz
