Added to precise repository: handbrake, mysql-query-browser

I’ve just upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS “Precise Pangolin” on a number of devices. It’s been smooth so far, and I’ll write up the issues I’ve found soon. In the mean time, I’ve added a few packages to the precise repository.

  1. handbrake-gtk and handbrake-cli, taken directly from the official PPA. The oneiric package runs in precise so I haven’t rebuilt it.
  2. mysql-query-browser, mysql-admin, and their dependencies, taken directly from oneiric. These have been replaced by MySQL Workbench and dropped from precise. However, Workbench doesn’t support MySQL 4, so if you are still forced to work with that ancient release, you still need mysql-query-browser.
  3. loco, from the lucid repo. I like to colourise logs whilst debugging.
  4. system-profile, a bash script with cron job that I wrote to take a summary of all installed hardware and running settings which aren’t easily found in the filesystem. Sure, you can run “cat /proc/cpuinfo” while the server is running, but what about when it’s dead? system-profile gives you the same information, provided you made a backup of the filesystem. You do have backups, right?
  5. aircrack-ng, taken directly from oneiric.

    I can’t stand MySQL Workbench, hopefully they’ll keep mysql-query-browser available for a looooong time.

      Thank you very much for making MySQL query browser (and Handbrake!) easily available.
      I cannot use the MySQL Workbench (database too old…) so this is perfect.

      Thank you so much for making mysql-gui-tools easily available in 12.04 – I hate MySQL workbench and was somewhat peeved to find that it had disappeared from the 12.04 repos!

        Add my repository, using the instructions on the “APT Repository” page. Then install mysql-query-browser using any package manager (Ubuntu Software Centre, Synaptic, apt-get, aptitude).

        I have added your repository for Lucid using the auto method (im running Precise) done an “apt-get Update” but still when i do an “apt-get install mysql-admin” it says – Unable to locate package. Any ideas please?

          Yes. Configure the precise repo. Why did you use the lucid one?

          Yes apolgoies for the mix up – i have now installed mysql-admin into Precise.

          However it erros.

          After logging in – when i go to click on the Root user in User Administration it errors with:

          Could not retrieve user information for ‘root’
          MySQL Error Nr. 1064
          You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ‘TYPE=MYISAM COMMENT=’Stores additional user information’ CHARACTER SET UTF8 COLL’ at line 1

            That problem is likely specific to your server. This package has no trouble connecting to my MySQL 4, 5.1, and 5.5 servers.

            Sorry, that was incorrect. Testing again, I can see that MySQL Administrator can connect to my MySQL 4.0.16 and 5.1.59 servers. However, when testing against a 5.5.25a server, it gives the same warning you see.

            Unfortunately, these tools are deprecated and unmaintained. I doubt they’ll work for 5.5 onward. You’ll have to use MySQL Workbench for them.

            Can i manually install a MySQL 5.1 server into Precise do you know?

            Reply

            1. Tyler Wagner’s avatar

              Probably, by backporting mysql 5.1. That is a very bad idea. I strongly suggest you use phpmyadmin or MySQL Workbench.

              I hate using workbench. By providing mysql-admin & mysql-query-browser for ubuntu precise, you really made my life a lot easier. Thank you very much.
