I recently upgraded my mysql version on my gentoo HTPC (uses mythtv) and
I can no longer access the mysql database from my laptop using a client
application I wrote with mysql++. Previously it had been working for
about a year and now it doesn't. Interestingly mysql can connect to the
HTPC database from my laptop. I am getting the following error with my
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'mysqlpp::ConnectionFailed'
what(): Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial
communication packet', system error: 111
The version of mysqld:
mysqld Ver 5.0.70-log for pc-linux-gnu on x86_64 (Gentoo Linux
I tried upgrading to the latest mysql++ (available in portage) and it is
still the same problem. The version is now 2.3.2.
Does anyone have any ideas where I should start looking?
