Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 492393
Please apply patch from upstream to fix DBD::Sybase build failure
Last modified: 2009-03-27 10:51:36 EDT
One of the most common uses of the freetds library is to build and use the DBD::Sybase perl module. However freetds-0.82 has a bug which stops DBD::Sybase from building, because it is missing some constants in a header file. (The symptom is messages like "dbdimp.c:777: error: ‘BLK_VERSION_150’ undeclared".)
As you can see in <http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/ALPHA/freetds/stable/>, there is a patch from upstream you can apply to 0.82 to fix this. It adds the missing constants to the header file. Please could you rebuild the freetds packages applying the patch in <http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/ALPHA/freetds/stable/cspublic.BLK_VERSION_150.patch>?
(I did ask upstream whether they could make a 0.82.1 release incorporating this patch, but they prefer to ask users to apply the patch themselves.)
freetds-0.82-4.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
freetds-0.82-4.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
