    Database recommendations

    Looking for a simple, gui, database that would work with SuSE 8.0 Pro. Have a personal database that has around 2000 entries in it. Used to use Access (can I say that word here?), but currently using the built-in database that comes with OpenOffice on Win2000. Had problems with it in Linux so took it off Linux. Any suggestions? (Remember you are not dealing with a rocket scientist here!

    MySQL or PostrgreSQL. Both have gui frontends. Look at freshmeat.net for the frontends. For your purposes, I highly doubt that one is going to be superior to the other, just what GUIs there are for it.

    you can use mySQL with openoffice.org, which will give you most of the access style of stuff you're used to (QBE, for example)

    http://www.unixodbc.org/doc/OOoMySQL.pdf
    for the howto (it's a PDF).

    mySQL is easier, right out of the box IMHO, but it is missing some things. If you need to do nested subqueries, go with postgreSQL.
