Description Chris Ricker 2003-08-28 11:05:14 EDT
Out of the box, unixODBC doesn't work with PostgreSQL

/etc/odbcinst.ini has

Description     = ODBC for PostgreSQL
Driver      = /usr/lib/libodbcpsql.so
Setup       = /usr/lib/libodbcpsqlS.so
FileUsage       = 1

However, /usr/lib/libodbcpsql.so (symlink to .so.2) only exists if
unixODBC-devel is installed

Either unixODBC needs to require unixODBC-devel (which would be very lame) or
the symlink needs to be moved from the unixODBC-devel package to the unixODBC
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-08-28 15:18:01 EDT
Or, the INI file edited to mention the actual file name?
Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2003-08-28 15:28:28 EDT
That would work (and is what I've done), but most documentation (and the
ODBCConfig program, which would also have to be updated) do it without the .1 / .2
Comment 3 Chris Ricker 2003-10-15 18:48:26 EDT
This looks fixed by today's rawhide -- now /usr/lib/libodbcpsql.so is in
unixODBC instead of unixODBC-devel
