An updated mysql-connector-odbc package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The mysql-connector-odbc package contains the Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) driver for MySQL.
Previously, the mysql-connector-odbc package required the unixODBC package. However, this is not needed because the explicit dependency on the unixODBC shared library is sufficient. This update removes the dependency on the unixODBC package. As a result, the main unixODBC64 package can now be installed instead of unixODBC, and older ODBC applications can still use MySQL.
All users of mysql-connector-odbc are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
