mysql-connector-odbc-5.1.5 32-bit for CentOS6

Post by infdata » 2011/09/25 20:26:15

Hi everybody,

I cannot find 32-bit mySQL ODBC connector.
Can somebody help? The only connector I can list with yum list is:
[code]yum list mysql*odbc*[/code]

result:
[code]mysql-connector-odbc.x86_64 5.1.5r1144-7.el6 @anaconda-CentOS-201106060106.x86_64/6.0[/code]

Any help appreciated.

Jani

I use 64-bit Centos 6.0 but I still need 32-bit ODBC driver. System info is:

Basic system information.

I run into this sort of thing all the time.
My recommendation is:

1) boot a CentOS6/SL6 32-bit live-cd (or use a running EL6, 32-bit box)
2) install yum-utils,
3) use "yumdownloader --resolve mysql-connector-odbc" to pull the files.
4) port the files to your 64-bit box
5) "yum localinstall mysql-connector-odbc" (etc) from #3
6) profit

Good luck and do not forget to point to the 32-bit libraries (/usr/lib/libmyodbc3.so)

Thanx for the idea. (with mySQL ODBC 5.1 it is actualy /usr/lib/libmyodbc5.so)

But isn't yum on 64-bit system suppose to show 32-bit packages too?

There has to be an easier way :) (lazy me :)

Not all of the packages in EL6 have a 32-bit repo available by default so I have to do it this way frequently.
I just did it on a DEV box this morning in fact.

Maybe there is another repo you can enable but I have not run across it and this works for me.
In the amount of time we both typed these replies you could have probably pulled the packages you needed. ;-)

Only if they exist. On 64-bit SL6 (similar for CentOS-6):[code]
[root@poq1 ~]# uname -i
x86_64
[root@poq1 ~]# yum whatprovides /usr/lib/libmyodbc5.so
Loaded plugins: priorities, refresh-packagekit
6587 packages excluded due to repository priority protections

[root@poq1 ~]# yum whatprovides /usr/lib64/libmyodbc5.so

On 32-bit:[code]
[root@sl6vm ~]# uname -i
i386
[root@sl6vm ~]# yum whatprovides /usr/lib/libmyodbc5.so
Loaded plugins: priorities, refresh-packagekit

Don't use 32-bit packages on your 64-bit system, or be prepared to do more work. EL6 now defaults to "pure" x86_64 rather than multi-arch.

P.S. Not sure what good the LiveCD will do you. Perhaps the i386 install media.

Thank you Phil.

[quote]Don't use 32-bit packages on your 64-bit system, or be prepared to do more work. EL6 now defaults to "pure" x86_64 rather than multi-arch.[/quote]

But what if the SW I use is 64-bit AND requires 32-bit ODBC driver?

This means I am in a dead corner - so I understand, you propose in order to put everything together I should use 32-bit CentOS?

Anyway I found the rpm at [url=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/os/i386/Packages/mysql-connector-odbc-5.1.5r1144-7.el6.i686.rpm]centos mirror[/url].

Not sure now what to do.

I really understood that 32-bit and 64-bit SW should not collide on 64-bit system (RHEL based) since it is a multilib system. Thus using double libraries: /usr/lib/ & /usr/lib64/ etc.

Just download the rpm to your system and then do "yum localinstall ${rpm}"
