Description Thomas Bruno 2003-09-26 10:50:57 UTC
When I try to create a table in mysqlcc it reports back that it is unable to
load syntax file.  I went thought the configs, and it defaults to
userdir/syntax.txt  but gentoo puts the file in /usr/share/mysql/syntax.txt

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  emerge mysqlcc
2. run mysqlcc
3. create database
4. try and create a table

Actual Results:  
The create table window comes up and says it can't find required file, and it
won't let you create the tables.

Expected Results:  
Opened up and let my start entring table data.

I changed the syntax.txt setting in the options menu from $userdir/syntax.txt to
/usr/share/mysqlcc/syntax.txt  and everything starts working.

damn old bug, no one likes mysqlcc -is this a problem with the 0.9.4 ebuild, too? There are a few bugs pending regarding mysqlcc, but if they can not be easily solved and there are not too much dependencies, it _may_ be removed, since

Excuse me mysql team, but I close this bug, since you're not reachable and the metadata file says it's kde-other stuff.

bug 60745 for reference
