Description Jonathan Corbet 2010-05-17 15:36:54 EDT
Description of problem:

In x86_64 rawhide, gnucash is unable to locate the libdbi backends and thus silently refuses to offer the new database storage options.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ensure that the appropriate libdbi-dbd-* drivers are installed
2. Run gnucash
3. Note that you can neither open or save to anything except "xml."
Actual results:

My PostgreSQL server sits there alone, unwanted, and idle.

Expected results:

I should be able to store to postgres.

Additional info:

The problem is the usual /usr/lib64 obnoxiousness - it never ends.  The database drivers are in /usr/lib64, but gnucash wants them in /usr/lib.  Setting GNC_DBD_DIR seems like it should fix it, but it doesn't.  OTOH, doing 
"ln -s /usr/lib64/dbd /usr/lib" makes everything work.
