MySQL Workbench 5.2.35 on Ubuntu 11.10 64bit (Oneiric Ocelot)

Well, if no one is gonna do it, you have to do it yourself. I had the need for latest MySQL Workbench – 5.2.35, but I also upgraded to the latest Ubuntu, the Oneiric Ocelot (11.10). As with most of new things, I couldn’t get it to work out of the box, so little compiling session was in order. If you need the package, you can download the deb. It is for 64bit (amd64) architecture. This is the first time I have created a deb package, so I apologize in advance if I didn’t follow some basic rules.

  1. Great job. The only thing you could improve is to hold all executable files under /usr/bin instead of /opt/bin. Anyway it’s working perfectly. Thankx.

  2. Hm-m-m,
    Will it work on Intel i5 platform?
    I had it installed on 11.2 and it was working fine.
    Since I upgraded to 11.10 it is no longer working.
    I.e. when I tried to start it it hangs on the splash screen pegging one of the CPUs.
    I did try to install your package, though, but got a message: The packet is of bad quality.
