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