    Default Getting started on Ubuntu / MySQL

    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.

    This is a signature.... everyone gets it.

    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,
