I'm working on a Python project that uses DSN-less connections with SQLAlchemy / pyodbc / unixODBC / FreeTDS to fetch data from a SQL Server database. Now I would like to set
client charset directly in the connection string which is not possible in FreeTDS versions prior to 0.91.
Unfortunately 0.91 is not available in any PPA or as a deb file and as my compiling skills are quite lacking I haven't been able successfully compile it directly from source.
A user over at the Ubuntu Forums seems to have the same problem.
So, how would I go about compiling
FreeTDS 0.91 on
Ubuntu 11.04 x64? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
