Forgot to mention, first submission. In need of sponsor.
Comment 2 Dan Horák 2008-08-15 01:38:12 EDT
If there is something wrong with the existing freetds-devel (look at http://sunsite.mff.cuni.cz/MIRRORS/fedora.redhat.com/linux/development/i386/os/Packages/ for the whole package collection or run "yum install freetds-devel" on your workstation if you need it) package, then you should file a bug against freetds.
Comment 3 Andy Theuninck 2008-08-15 10:15:48 EDT
yum install freetds-devel doesn't work. It's not in the non-dev repos. In fact, the freetds package in the regular repos is a 3-year old version of the library.

How do I see the history or status of this package - find out why it isn't available? A bugzilla search of 'freetds' doesn't turn up anything useful.

The fedora package db (https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/packages/) is currently down w/ a 500 error, but when I looked yesterday freetds-devel wasn't in there.
Comment 4 Dan Horák 2008-08-15 12:27:46 EDT
freetds-devel exists in all recent versions = F-8, F-9 and Rawhide, what system are running? But I agree that there is an old version (0.64) in F-8 and F-9. Just file a bug asking the maintainer to update to the latest version.

The whole package history is available via CVS and browseable at http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewcvs/rpms/freetds/
The "binary" freetds-devel package is not a standalone package, it is created along with "binary" freetds from one source freetds package, so it cannot be found in pkgdb.
Comment 5 Andy Theuninck 2008-08-15 12:36:52 EDT
Hmmm. I'm running F9 and installing from yum gives me the old version (0.64). yum search freetds doesn't show -devel or -doc packages, but I guess that could be an artifact of them not being standalone packages.
Comment 6 Dan Horák 2008-08-15 13:10:42 EDT
Hmm, I can see the -devel and -doc packages when doing "yum search freetds" on my F-8. Just try it later, there are some troubles now with some of the Fedora servers.
Comment 7 Andy Theuninck 2008-08-15 22:02:54 EDT
Weird. It's there today (albeit still 0.64).
