mysql workbench won't run on Centos 7

Postby weaved » 2017/11/20 15:46:11

Hi All,

I've tried a couple of different rpm packages but still the application installs without error but won't run. It's been a few years since I spent any time with centos. The install completes and when I click on the short cut the application crashes and the centos bug reporter kicks in.

Can anyone give me some clue what's wrong ?

Server Working: mysql-community-server-5.7.20-1.el7.x86_64.rpm

Workbench: mysql-workbench-community-6.3.10-1.el7.x86_64.rpm

thanks in advance

Run it from a command prompt so you can see any error messages it issues.

Hi

Hope I've done this correct.....

Opened the terminal window and entered mysql-workbench.

/usr/libexec/mysql-workbench/mysql-workbench-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libtinyxml.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Not sure but it might be missing some library.


thanks,

Yes, it's missing that library. Run yum provides '*/libtinyxml.so.0' to see what package(s) supply that file. Install it and try again.

Can't believe this but an update notification came in and I accepted without checking Mysql Workbench was being updated to latest.

Now Workbench no longer runs. :|

I did as you suggested last time ran workbench from the terminal window and reams of info displayed.... I believe a system dump was most of this.

At the top part it displayed some kind of warning.

Not to worry......

Removed the latest version and manually reinstalled the previous and all is well.

How do I keep Centos from updating workbench at least for the foreseeable future ?


thanks,

I got tired of this and opted for phpMyAdmin on my db server. Now I web page in and it all 'just works'. In addition, because I used yum to install, updates are 'automatic'.
