I am working on WinXP and I have to access a MySQL database. I read that this is not automatically included in the pro binary version of ROOT.
What can I do? Is there a guide to include it? Is there a Windows version with MySQL support avaliable?
Thank you for your help!
You will need to install cygwin and build ROOT from scratch.
Do I also have to build the MySQL library for cygwin or is there is a compiled version avaliable?
It depends whether you are going to go with a build with gcc (where you probably need to build the MySQL library) or with a Microsoft VC++ build where you might be able to download a library already built (you may already have done so when you installed MySQL, check your installation and/or the MySQL web site).
Thanks for all your answers!
