Description of problem:
I downloaded the static compilation from globecom.se/tora/ (links to
Works fine with connection providers for Oracle and MySQL already installed. RH
8 notified me that an update exists for Tora, so I updated (using up2date).
After doing this, I get a dialog each time I start TOra: "No available
connection provider, plugins probably missing". I cannot connect to any databases.
I do have Oracle installed on the machine. And kdelibs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove existing tora installation
2. Install http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/tora/tora-1.2.4-1oracle9.i686.rpm
3. Launch up2date
Actual Results: Tora configuration seems broken
up2date can only be trusted if you are using packages built from Red Hat source
RPMs. That way, the files are put in the proper place and can be updated
properly. This bug may need to go to up2date, since up2date should check to see
if the Packager of the currently installed package is indeed a Red Hat package.
If it isn't, the user can opt to force an upgrade or to ignore the upgrade
No an up2date issue. I get the exact same problem if I install the official
RPM from scratch.
Please note that 1.2.4 < 188.8.131.52, this is the reason why up2date offered to
upgrade the package. If you want up2date to ignore the newer (but not
Oracle-enabled) tora, you may add tora to up2date's skiplist.
I am not exactly sure I understand the bug report. Was tora-184.108.40.206 working
before, you installed 1.2.4, then you re-installed 220.127.116.11 and it doesn't work
18.104.22.168 never worked for me and always gives the same error message
(see summary). The outcome is the same, regardless if I upgrade from 1.2.4
or install on a 'clean' machine.
1.2.4 from globecom works nicely.
Okay, I'll try to schedule some time to work on the tora package this week.tora
works like a charm on my machine (but it's a custom build for 7.3).
Here's the fix:
Install qt-ODBC and/or qt-PostgreSQL qt-MySQL; make sure you remove .tora* in
your home directory (they seem to be versioned, or at least that's what I think).
Then you'll start seeing the mysql and postgresql connection providers.
I would be really grateful if you downloaded the newer tora 1.3.8 rpms from:
and run those instead, since I'm trying to test the packaging on this one. I've
updated the package's description too.
It installed nicely, but failed to execute:
[oracle@dellbert oracle]$ tora
tora: relocation error: tora: undefined symbol: static_QUType_varptr
Yupp, my bad. Can you please try it now? Please make sure you rpm -e tora before
attempting to install the 3.8.0 packages. Thanks a lot.
I installed ftp://people.redhat.com/misa/fixes/tora/tora-1.3.8-3.8.0.i386.rpm
but I still get the same (original) error: "No available connection provider,
plugins probably missing"
Have you run:
rm -rf ~/.tora*
and installed qt-ODBC, qt-PostgreSQL and qt-MySQL?
I forgot to remove .tora* (duh!). Works fine now.
Yeah, not sure why those files are versioned and have to be changed - makes
upgrades a PITA.
If that's okay with you, I'm going to close this bug as RAWHIDE - there is a fix
available out there.
