Re: MySql Workbench in AWS Linux WorkSpace

So I've figured out one way to run MySql Workbench on an AWS Workspace, but it's not a solution, just a clue to the root problem. And evidently this is not an AWS workspaces-specific issue, that is it's reproducible on a non-workspaces Amazon Linux 2 instance. If I replace the following Amazon Linux 2 /usr/lib64 shared objects with those of the same version number from CentOS (el7.x86_64.rpm packages instead of amzn2.x86_64 packages), then MySql Workbench runs successfully.

I say this is not a solution because I'm aware that I've not used proper maintenance procedures and likely destabilized my OS. But it seems to show that there is a library issue with either MySql Workbench and/or Amazon Linux 2. I'd think if the MySql Workbench el7 package had a library dependency issue then there would be complaints that it didn't work on RHEL/CentOS, and I don't see evidence of this online (which I realize isn't conclusive proof). Which leaves, either Amazon Linux 2 has a compatibility problem for some libraries with RHEL/CentOS (on which it's supposed to be based); or it is what it is and someone needs to build an Amazon Linux 2-specific MySql Workbench package; or ...? So does anyone who knows about Linux versions and libraries (I'm not a Linux admin nor developer) have an idea as to the proper resolution? Thanks for any attempts at answers.
