View Full Version : Getting started on Ubuntu / MySQL

07-02-2008, 11:09 AM
Dear all,

I am trying to make an evaluation of the Pentaho BI suite for my own education and after browsing the website and the wiki, I must admit I am quite confused about what I should do. I am primary interested in the reporting features connecting to a MySQL database or an Oracle database.
I am running Ubuntu 8.04, have a JVM but do not have any web server installed except for apache.

Could you kindly direct me to an appropriate ressource to make my evaluation smoother?

Thanks a lot,

Download pentaho_demo_mysql5 to start with unpack it and load the sql schema into your mysql database.

hey there,

I have tried the demo and it worked fine on Windows, will now try to hack a bit more into the whole suite.

Thanks a lot,
