That was the first page I went to. Will go back and give it another try. I guess we need to compile the C the adapter our selves. Thanks for responding.

The good news is it's being worked on and great progress has been made. There are a few people who have run into these problems with DB2 but no one ever communicated that information to the Rails guys, or Maik Schmidt (the DB2 Adapter author) until I started whining about it! :-) Cheers, John

Is there an update to the DB2 support options? There's a DB2 database that I'd like to talk to. -Larry On 1/1/06, John G. <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > > Based on > information to the Rails > _______________________________________________ > Rails mailing list > email@example.com > http://lists.rubyonrails.org/mailman/listinfo/rails > -- Best Regards, -Larry "Work, work, work...there is no satisfactory alternative." --- E.Taft Benson

There are some issues building under Win32 and regardless you need to have installed db2cli interface (see the dbi project on rubyforge). I also had issues until I switched to edge rails. The last remaining issue is the current adapter (as of a week or two ago), was a little crude in handling different types so it is important to do: row = Table.find 1 and not row = Table.find '1' Good luck pth p.s. check my blog for some information concerning building db2cli under win32 -- http://blog.hurleyhome.com/
