DBD::ODBC looks in /etc not /usr/local/etc for odbc files


#1

All,

I had installed the freetds and unixODBC packages onto my Linux system
using RPMs.

These RPMs installed these two packages into / basically (config files
in /etc, libraries in /lib and so forth).

However, when I discovered that they weren’t working, I gave up on the
RPMs and built the packages myself into /usr/local (config files in
/usr/local/etc, libraries in /usr/local/lib and so forth).

I then installed ruby-odbc and ruby-dbi (with the ODBC driver).

What I’m finding is that when I attempt to use the DBD::ODBC package to
connect to my database, the config. files are still being referenced
from /etc instead of /usr/local/etc.

How do I “make” the Ruby modules look in /usr/local for the config files
instead of /etc?

I don’t really understand how Ruby is generating it’s path’s internally.

Thanks,
Wes

You set the configuration files path when configuring unixODBC. Test
your ODBC connection with isql. Ruby ODBC only uses whatever was
configured in unixODBC.
