To install or upgrade Connector/ODBC from an RPM distribution
on Linux, simply download the RPM distribution of the latest
version of Connector/ODBC and follow the instructions below.
Use su root to become
root, then install the RPM file.
If you are installing for the first time:
rpm -ivh mysql-connector-odbc-5.3.8.i386.rpm
If the driver exists, upgrade it like this:
rpm -Uvh mysql-connector-odbc-5.3.8.i386.rpm
If there is any dependency error for MySQL client library,
libmysqlclient, simply ignore it by
--nodeps option, and then make
sure the MySQL client shared library is in the path or set
This installs the driver libraries and related documents to
/usr/share/doc/MyODBC, respectively. See
Section 5.5, “Configuring a Connector/ODBC DSN on Unix” for
the post-installation configuration steps.
To uninstall the driver,
root and execute an
rpm -e mysql-connector-odbc
