Description of problem:
Each time I try to connect to a MariaDB server (5.5.* and even Mageia’s 10.3.16) MySQL Workbench is failing with the following error message: “Unsupported option provided to mysql_options()”.
An interesting thing is that I’ve tried MySQL’s package dedicated to Fedora 27 (mysql-workbench-community-6.3.10-1.fc27.x86_64.rpm) which can be downloaded from https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/file/?id=474215 (it requires lib64jpeg62 as a dependency, and I forced the installation because of naming differences of other dependencies) and I’ve bee able to connect to my servers. So there’s really something bad in the version provided by Mageia 7.
Assigning to Jani rather than pkg-bugs, since he is the main committer of this pkg still around.
Added patches from openSUSE to mysql-connector-c++ to make it to work with mariadb.
mysql-connector-c++-1.1.9-2.1.mga7 should be available soonish in core/updates_testing for mga7. Please test.
Thank you Jani for the lightning fix!
Yes indeed, thank you for the quick fix Jani! I was pretty sure that mysql-connector-c++ was the culprit… ;-)
I confirm that MySQL Workbench can connect to MariaDB servers (at least mine).
Fill free to close the bug after pushing mysql-connector-c++-1.1.9-2.1.mga7 to Core update.
