[SOLVED] OpenSUSE12.3 Qt 5.1.1: QMYSQL-Driver is found valid, but not loaded

  • Hello all,

    I've searched the forums over and over but can't find any hint for my problem.

    On an openSUSE 12.3 64bit system I installed Qt5.1.1 using the online installer. Everything seemed to work fine.

    When trying to add a default database connection using QSqlDatabase::addDatabase("QMYSQL") the output is as follows:
    "QSqlDatabase: QMYSQL driver not loaded
    QSqlDatabase: available drivers: QSQLITE QMYSQL QMYSQL3 QPSQL QPSQL7"

    Hmmm... the driver seems to be where it belongs but can't be loaded?

    When I just change the driver type from QMYSQL to QSQLITE this message misses...

    Any hint?

    Do you have the mysql client libraries installed on your system ?

  • I'd think so.
    The mysqld runs on a remote computer but on my developing machine I have MySQL Workbench running in full featured mode beeing able to access the database on that remote server.

    Or is there anything else I should care about?

    Run ldd on the plugin to see it if misses something

  • Doing that it claimed that was missing.
    Somehow RPM missed to install the required soft link on
    Doing this manually solved this issue.

    Thank you very much!!!

    You're welcome !

    You might be missing some dev package on your system that does add this soft link
