Re: Where to find the source code (to rebuild) mysql connector C++

As a matter of interest:
When you get the warning, during linking, that libmysqlcppconn.so.x might conflict with libmysqlcppconn.so.y (e.g. where x=5 and y=6) then the binary will compile and link, but it will most likely fail to run; I got 'invalid pointer' errors at run time.

The only solution is to build your own C client AND libmysqlcppconn.so.6 so all the components use the same C++ libraries.

To get the C client:
To obtain the source code, you must have Bazaar installed.
Use the command 'bzr branch lp:libmysql' . This command 'dowloads' about 600MB so be patient - I almost killed it, thinking it was looping.

To get the mysqlcppconn source: This is quite quick.
bzr branch lp:~mysql/mysql-connector-cpp/trunk

You ow have all the source you need,
so just follow the instruction sheets.
