Looks like it, Alex! As I said before, I don't really want to use the
Java version, it

I had an afterthought question for you : do you have libmysqlclient or libmysqlcppconn installed on your Nadia box ? These might well be necessary for the connector to work. As far as I can tell, when one builds the connector it references the libraries on the system, but does not copy them into the connector itself. If you have them already, and it still isn't working, then it will be dependent on building for each OS version and bit arch.

So, it seems to me that the way to go MUST be a native connector. Do you
know whether
MariaDB is doing anything in this direction?

The way to go, from what I have gathered, is :

- the Linux distribs will provide the connector for their respective distrib versions of LO - since most don't ship the latest version of LO, then you won't get one that will work until they move on to the next version of LO ;

- on Mac and Windows, it is entirely up to the individual to try and build the conenctor, independently of the official version of LO that is released ;

- the LO dev team are waiting for the MariaDB team to get involved in providing a connector in line with Monty Widenius' statement to help out - from what I have seen recently, there is now actually a libmariadbclient library - this is a requirement to building a functional connector.

No-one that I know of is working on providing a mariadb connector for the LO project at the moment, but I am not following the MariaDB project.

Personally, I am starting to learn postgresql administration and maintenance, because it looks like the future of mysql connectivity in LO is going nowhere fast. I feel like where I was when I first started working with mysql 10 years ago, i.e. lost in a jungle of very technical information ;-)
