I am installing mysql-workbench and follow these instructions.


I have the following repo.

When I tried the command

sudo yum -y install mysql-workbench-community

I got the these erros.

Error: Package: mysql-workbench-community-6.3.8-1.el7.x86_64 (mysql-tools-community)
           Requires: proj
Error: Package: mysql-workbench-community-6.3.8-1.el7.x86_64 (mysql-tools-community)
           Requires: tinyxml
Error: Package: mysql-workbench-community-6.3.8-1.el7.x86_64 (mysql-tools-community)
           Requires: python-paramiko >= 1.15.1

My question is how to find the repo of these dependencies package - proj, tinyxml, python-paramiko?

  • @hot2use I disagree - databases and their attendant tools are on topic here. To the OP, I would say that Workbench is notorious for its dependencies - just try to install from source! :-) Try yum grouplist and there should be something like "Development Workstation and Creative.." (from memory) - do a sudo yum groupinstall "Deve...." and then try again. If this still leaves dependencies, search for stuff like python-paramiko &c. and either use an rpm or install from source. For fedora, it's nearly always something like sudo yum install library_name-devel.

You need install additional packages:

sudo yum install epel-release
sudo yum install proj
sudo yum install tinyxml
sudo yum install libzip

if You have trouble with repo

wget https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm
sudo yum install epel-release-7.noarch.rpm


sudo yum -y install mysql-workbench-community

enter image description here

enter image description here


Requires: python-paramiko >= 1.15.1

Download python-paramiko-1.15.1-1.sdl7.noarch.rpm then install:

rpm -ivh python-paramiko-1.15.1-1.sdl7.noarch.rpm

If when installing python-paramiko you get:

error: Failed dependencies:
python-ecdsa is needed by python-paramiko-1.15.1-1.sdl7.noarch

yum install -y python-ecdsa

Then you can install mysql-workbench:

yum -y install mysql-workbench-community

You need to install dependencies below

sudo dnf install -y https://download-ib01.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/37/Everything/x86_64/os/Packages/p/proj-data-9.0.1-1.fc37.noarch.rpm
sudo dnf install -y https://download-ib01.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/37/Everything/x86_64/os/Packages/p/proj-9.0.1-1.fc37.x86_64.rpm
sudo dnf install mysql-workbench-community-8.0.32-1.fc37.x86_64.rpm
