Hi,

When I execute RapidMiner from terminal, it starts OK, but I get the following messages:

Sep 21, 2011 10:05:35 PM com.rapidminer.tools.jdbc.JDBCProperties <init>
WARNING: Missing database driver class name for 'ODBC Bridge (e.g. Access)'

It seems that I have a problem with connections.xml file!
The file ~/.RapidMiner5/connections.xml exists, but it is empty. Is that right?

==> YES, that's right when you don't create a connection to any database in (Tools ==> Manage Database Connections)!

I tried to run rapid miner.jar as superuser, normal user and tried to do a chmod 777 -R on the folder.

Another thing that I realize is that I don`t have a /etc folder in my rapidminer-5.1.011.zip file.
Is that normal?

==> YES.

Thanks a lot!

    Hi,

    I agree it's a bit confusing to see this warning message if no db connections are present, this will be fixed in a future release.

    Regards,
    Marco

    Hi,

    there is (or better was) no problem. The confusing message should be gone in the latest RapidMiner release.

    Regards,
    Marco
