Navicat MySQL Broken on Intrepid Ibex

October 27, 2008 at 10:20 am 1 comment

I’m posting this mostly just to “get it out there”, as I can’t really post it as a bug with the Ubuntu team, and Navicat is closed-source with no public bug database…

After running Intrepid Ibex successfully for over a month now on two test machines, I upgraded my work laptop to it on Friday. I did this mostly because there was a new video driver available for my machine, and because I wanted to verify that a bug in gvfs is still a problem for me (which it is).

As a side-effect, I have discovered that Navicat MySQL (by far- the BEST MySQL client/script editor IMHO) doesn’t work anymore. I’ve tried both the licensed/commercial version, and the free “lite” version. Both abort within seconds of starting, with no error messages, and I can’t find anything logged. As far as I can tell- these are self-contained products. They actually run under WINE- but have their own custom wine implementation embedded, so don’t use Ubuntu’s.

    Well, I’m not sure what was changed, but as of today- with the full release of the Ibex- the problem with Navicat has been fixed.
