Hi Dan,

      I have a MacBook (Intel)circa 2006 that originally had OS X 10.4
installed. It has 2 GB RAM and is 32 bit. I have installed Ubuntu 12.04.
Could this be used to compile a connector? If so, what has to be done to
do so? I really have no knowledge of any of the computer languages, so I
don't know if my offer to help will be useful.
Yes, that could be used, but you need to compile the whole of LO in
order to get the connector. If you are using the Ubuntu 12.04 (which is
the same baseline as what I have on 32 bit OS), then there is a page on
the developer wiki which tells you what you need to have in order to be
able to build the basic LO on Ubuntu systems.

In addition, you will need libmysqlclient, and libmysqlcppconn. I think
these are installed if you install the mysql connector plugin that
Ubuntu provides with its own distrib version of LO, if not, you will
have to install them via apt-get, synaptic, or the graphical interface
that Ubuntu provides for installing new software (I forget what it is
called at the moment).

With that hardware, it will take some time, plan on 24-48 hours for a
first build and to have the connector built at the same time, you need
to add the following switches after you type ./ to start the
configuration of the build :

--with-ext-mysql-connector --with-system-mysql

If you get an error at this point, give me a shout.

Steps taken so far:
1) Used synaptic to download libmysqlclient and libmysqlcppconn. I also downloaded the dev version of these.
2) |sudo apt-get build-dep libreoffice # Debian & derivatives|
|3) sudo apt-get install git
4) |||||git clone git:// libo
5) ||./||--with-ext-mysql-connector --with-system-mysql ||
Some comments: #4 was a very large download. What is in it? (the master build is this large???) On #5, I found the purpose for each of the switches, and I understand their purposes. I have mysql installed on my laptop that I will use to build the connector. So, the mysql config files should have the location to the executable file. For what it is worth, I have 3.5 GB of SWAP on my hard drive. As of the time I am sending this email, I am entering #5 into a terminal. I will keep you abreast of my progress.
