MySQL workbench doesn't work on Fedora 25 [closed]

asked 2017-01-03 12:51:24 -0500

So I've downloaded MySQL Workbench's rpm from their site, which specifies it's a F24 release. When I try to install it I get the following errors:

sudo rpm -ivh mysql-workbench-community-6.3.8-1.fc24.x86_64.rpm  
warning: mysql-workbench-community-6.3.8-1.fc24.x86_64.rpm: Header V3 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 5072e1f5: NOKEY
error: Failed dependencies:
        python-paramiko >= 1.15.1 is needed by mysql-workbench-community-6.3.8-1.fc24.x86_64

I have python3-paramiko (from the official Fedora repo, which is version 2.1.1) installed, and yet their package still complains about it.

One thing I've tried was downloading and installing MySQL's official F25 repo, but now it tries to override my current MariaDB installation, which is undesirable (and yes, Workbench works with MariaDB, so no problem there).

Can anyone help?

OK, nevermind, solved it:

  1. You need to follow their instructions to enable extra MySQL Community repos;
  2. Then install mysql-workbench-community-6.3.8-1.fc24.x86_64.rpm;
  3. It's python2-paramiko (which installs by default as a requirement).

1) Enable the MySQL repo. 2) dnf install mysql-workbench-community 3) Disable the repos to keep mariadb: /etc/yum.repos.d/mysql-community-source.repo and /etc/yum.repos.d/mysql-community.repo
