issues with building QMYSQL plugin
Since you have two sets of MySQL libraries there might be something else.
Can you post the result of
dpkg -l | grep -i mysql?

There's something fishy here, you have two sets of mysql client libraries and the dev package you have matches the libmysqlclient20 while the one I was suggesting is matching libmysqlclient18. I'd remove the XX20 related packages and re-install the libmysqlclient-dev for 18.
I can do that. Here's a snippet of my CLI:

As you can see, when I removed version 20, removed the development package as well. Should I reinstall both that, and version 18?
You still have the stable 18 installed so you should only need to install the dev package. Ensure that is also comes from the stable repo and you should be fine.
I did an apt-cache show libmysqlclient-dev and it gave me 3 choices (omitted for brevity). How do I know which one I want (all different versions) and how do I make this selection?
The one that is marked
@SGaist I believe we have lift-off! (that's American for a good thing) I now have that file, and make and make install both completed successfully. Along the way, I got rid of that weird problem with the compiler flag, too.
So, back to the original exercise of building the QMYSQL plugin...I've re-read the page and they don't really say where to find it, or how to get Creator to pick it up. (I've never used plugins before, it that isn't obvious by now.) How do I check to see that it's available to Creator?
This was a good learning experience...thanks for all the help, SGaist.
Since you've called
make installyour original plugin should have been replaced by the one you just built. It will be loaded as before automatically for you but this time it should be successful.
It looks like I still have a little clean-up to do. I wanted to ensure I could repeat the build, so I did a make clean, then another qmake (which finished successfully), and a make, which brought back the compiler flag issue:
mzimmers@debian:~/QtStuff/qtbase/src/plugins/sqldrivers/mysql$ make g++ -c -pipe -O2 -std=c++1z -fvisibility=hidden -fvisibility-inlines-hidden -fno-exceptions -Wall -W -Wvla -Wdate-time -D_REENTRANT -fPIC -DQT_NO_CAST_TO_ASCII -DQT_NO_CAST_FROM_ASCII -DQT_NO_EXCEPTIONS -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -DQT_NO_DEBUG -DQT_PLUGIN -DQT_SQL_LIB -DQT_CORE_LIB -I. -isystem /usr/include -I/opt/Qt/5.8/gcc_64/include/QtSql/5.8.0 -I/opt/Qt/5.8/gcc_64/include/QtSql/5.8.0/QtSql -I/opt/Qt/5.8/gcc_64/include/QtCore/5.8.0 -I/opt/Qt/5.8/gcc_64/include/QtCore/5.8.0/QtCore -I/opt/Qt/5.8/gcc_64/include -I/opt/Qt/5.8/gcc_64/include/QtSql -I/opt/Qt/5.8/gcc_64/include/QtCore -I.moc -isystem /usr/include/mysql -I../../../../mkspecs/linux-g++ -o .obj/qsql_mysql.o qsql_mysql.cpp g++: error: unrecognized command line option ‘-std=c++1z’ Makefile:801: recipe for target '.obj/qsql_mysql.o' failed make: *** [.obj/qsql_mysql.o] Error 1
I've reviewed this thread for the various suggestions, and I can't see anything that I'm still doing wrong at this point. Any suggestions?
Something strange, the wrong standard is selected. Just tested and it used
Does your project file look like this?
TARGET = qsqlmysql HEADERS += $$PWD/qsql_mysql_p.h SOURCES += $$PWD/qsql_mysql.cpp $$PWD/main.cpp #QMAKE_USE += mysql OTHER_FILES += mysql.json PLUGIN_CLASS_NAME = QMYSQLDriverPlugin include(../qsqldriverbase.pri)
And do your installed mysql packages look more or less like this?

Sorry, I was building 5.9 but the project file is the same except that I didn't comment QMAKE_USE in my case.
@SGaist OK, well...this is confounding.
I've also lost my CLI commands for mysql-client and mysql-server. I think when I was uninstalling, I may have lost a few things. Do you think I should install these?
mysql-server | 5.5.54-0+deb8u1 | http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates/main amd64 Packages mysql-server | 5.5.54-0+deb8u1 | http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates/main amd64 Packages
Yes, otherwise you won't have a MySQL database available on your machine. Note that you don't need it to build the plugin, really just to provide a database to work with.
SGaist: I'm going to re-do my MySQL installations from scratch, using the notes above. One thing I'm not clear on is, why am I using 5.5.54 instead of 5.7.17? Is it compatibility with the plugin source?
AFAIK, 5.5 is the current officially available on jessie. 5.7 is from sid AKA unstable.
Thank you for all of the help, SGaist. I've got a clean installation of the correct version of mysql on my system now, and I believe I'm building correctly (if I manually modify the compiler flags). When I make, I get a file libqsqlmysql.so in qtbase/plugins/sqldrivers. When I do a make install, I get a copy of this file in /opt/Qt/5.8/gcc_64/plugins/sqldrivers. I believe this is the correct behavior. There's also a copy in tTools/QtCreator/libQt/plugins/sqldrivers. I think this got downloaded with Creator.
Oddly, though, the file sizes aren't the same. Does "make install" actually build again, using different compiler options?
I'm going to consider this thread resolved. To summarize:
- Make sure you're using the correct version of qmake. Use the full pathname.
- When you install the mysql package, make sure you're getting the correct version.
- If you'll need a local server, install mysql-server. This will automatically give you mysql-client and some other stuff you will likely need at some point.
- In addition to installing mysql-server, you need to install libmysqlclient-dev for some header files.
- If you don't already have them, you need to install zlib1g-dev and libssl-dev as well.
- If you're not doing this as a super-user, you may not have permissions to build in place, and you'll need to make a private copy first. The "make install" command should create a copy in the correct location.
Just a small thing for number 3, you don't need the
mysql-serverpackage if you'll be connecting to a remote server. only
@SGaist right you are: I reworded it. Thanks.
