Installing Connector/ODBC from the Development Source Tree


You should read this section only if you are interested in helping us test our new code. If you just want to get MySQL Connector/ODBC up and running on your system, you should use a standard release distribution.

To obtain the most recent development source tree, you first need to download and install Bazaar. You can obtain Bazaar from the Bazaar VCS Web site. Bazaar is supported by any platform that supports Python, and is therefore compatible with any Linux, Unix, Windows or Mac OS X host. Instructions for downloading and installing Bazaar on the different platforms are available on the Bazaar Web site.

To build from the source trees, you need the following tools:

  • autoconf 2.52 (or newer)

  • automake 1.4 (or newer)

  • libtool 1.4 (or newer)

  • m4

The most recent development source tree is available from our public Subversion trees at http://dev.mysql.com/tech-resources/sources.html.

To check out out the Connector/ODBC sources, change to the directory where you want the copy of the Connector/ODBC tree to be stored, then use the following command:

shell> bzr branch lp:myodbc

You should now have a copy of the entire Connector/ODBC source tree in the directory connector-odbc3. To build from this source tree on Unix or Linux follow these steps:

shell> cd myodbc
shell> aclocal
shell> autoheader
shell> libtoolize -c -f
shell> autoconf
shell> automake;
shell> ./configure  # Add your favorite options here
shell> make

For more information on how to build, refer to the INSTALL file located in the same directory. For more information on options to configure, see Section, “Typical configure Options”

When the build is done, run make install to install the Connector/ODBC 3.51 driver on your system.

If you have gotten to the make stage and the distribution does not compile, please report it to .

On Windows, make use of Windows Makefiles WIN-Makefile and WIN-Makefile_debug in building the driver. For more information, see Section, “Installing Connector/ODBC from a Source Distribution on Windows”.

After the initial checkout operation to get the source tree, you should run bzr pull periodically to update your source according to the latest version.
