Installing MySQL Administrator on Linux

Installing the MySQL GUI tools are pretty easy on Linux (Fedora - 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6) but there are a few prerequisites for setting them up. The following listed RPMs are required. I did a google search and then performed a quick download of them.
  • libsigc++20-2.0.6-1.i386.rpm
  • gtkmm24-2.8.5-1.i386.rpm
Load the RPMs. MySQL Administor is loaded in /usr/bin by default.
# rpm -i libsigc++20-2.0.6-1.i386.rpm
# rpm -i
# rpm -i gtkmm24-2.8.5-1.i386.rpm
# rpm mysql-gui-tools-5.0r12-1fc5.i386.rpm
# rpm mysql-administrator-5.0r12-1fc5.i386.rpm

Go to the Desktop Applications Menu and select the Programming Tab. You will see the MySQL Administor Icon. Select this icon and it will startup up MySQL Administrator in a windows environment. Then have fun! :)
