With the upgrade to Paramiko 2.0 for Slackware 14.2 four months ago the functionality for SSH connections in MySQL Workbench was broken. Apparently in Parmiko 2.0.0 the module PyCrypto was replaced with Cryptography, but I have omitted this and since I'm mostly using socket or SSL connections, so I have not noticed the problem until yesterday. After some struggle to build the new dependencies (see below) the site already offers all the necessary packages.
Effectively the dependency tree for Paramiko become as follows:
- Paramiko 2.1.0 (upgraded package)
So 7 new packages for just having SSH connections working in MySQL Workbench, but it worth the late night stay, so that the software is fully functional on the latest Slackware. I really hope this issue with the Paramiko package have not caused troubles, because I really try to verify all the packages I built by actually using them, but I cannot catch everything myself.
I wish you trouble-less using of all my packages and if there is a problem, please do not hesitate to contact me to try resolving it or escalating it upstream. Cheers!
