Sybase/FreeTDS and RoR


#1

Hi there !

I’m drilling for some framework/apserver solution and come to RoR. After
using InstantRails, I would try to run it on my test platform (Solarix
10 x86 on 1 machine, Sybase ASE on another, FreeTDS for the join).

I could not manage to have the sybase driver for ruby compile with
FreeTDS. So I try to run a ODBC bridge. All seems good (freeTDS runnin,
unixODBC working with freeTDS) but ruby-odbc. I can’t find how to tell
the extconf.rb script where to look for the sql.h and other -lodbc files
(all are in /local/lib/include ou /local/lib/lib).

Any advice ?
