Hi Dan,

> 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

Yes, that is normal, you have downloaded the whole source code tree for the current master build version of LO. In core/libo, you will find a series of folders, each one corresponding to different parts of LO that are either systematically built, or else are optional build modules for some of the extensions or other goodies.

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.

Good effort so far, now all you have to do is wait :-))
The total time for building LO the first time, including the connector, with a config like the one you mention, is about 24 hours. Seeing as you are only building the mysql connector in addition to the standard extensions, it might be shorter. I regularly build with more extensions (extra templates, extra gallery, googledocs, etc) so it takes more time on my machines.
