[Mono-list] MySql 1.1.7 problem also under 1.1.8

Aha - right, yes, having done the trick with OLD_PASSWORD, I can get the
ByteFX driver to work fine. So I switched the app to use that, rather than
the one from MySql, and the app now works fine with Mono 1.1.8 under XP. So
thank you, Martin, Bill and Dilton. I'm a bit twitchy about deploying
something that's called 'unsupported' rather than the 'official' one ... but
hey, with a bit of luck the 'official' one will work under Mono again soon
(in fact, now that 1.1.8 has got a DevStudio solution for building Mono on
Windows, I might even try to figure out what the problem is myself).

Thanks all.

Kevin Flanagan.

There are a couple of workarounds to the authentication problem when
using ByteFX, see:


I had the same problem with the default mysql driver running against
Mysql 4.1.10, it seems to want either 4.0 or 5.x.
