Hi Heinrich,

- it neither works on Mint-Nadia or Windows-Vista (I know, I know --
  I should upgrade THAT system!). The connector DID however work under
  Vista and LO 3.6.5.
Unfortunately I really don't have the time to compile it myself...
What are the plans in any case?

There are no plans by any of the mainstream devs, or the LO project, to
support this connector. For Linux distribs, you will have to wait until
they produce an updated connector, but of course, if they are not
shipping LO4, the you are well and truly up the creek without a paddle.

Which bit architecture are you using on Linux Nadia ? I can send you a
32bit version that I built for Linux Maya and which works, but it might
not on Nadia if the Ubuntu/Mint people have changed the mysql library
versions in the meantime.


Hi Alex,
Thanks for your offer! I use a 32bit architecture on Mint-Nadia. Yes, I will
gladly try out the connector you built for Maya. Please send it to
I have of course used both JDBC- and ODBC-based connectors in the past. But
if I can, I avoid both of them, partly for the reason that installation
(of the ODBC-version in particular) is more work, but also because I have
found them to be "buggier". I also assume that they use more resources.
Altogether I feel that a well-performing, stable connector to the widely
used relational DB-systems is a MUST for any "serious" application where
data structure is non-trivial and where a sizeable amount of data has to
be dealt with. So - if AOOffice can produce something which works cross-OS
then we should try to get something working also in LO.
