I've just setup unixODBC with libmyodbc.

isql -v mydb Works perfect. I can run SELECT commands, updates etc. no worries. When I try to connect through my connector in bondijs I get this errorr:

([unixODBC][Driver Manager]Can't open lib '/usr/lib64/odbc/libmyodbc.so' : file not found)

I don't think it's something language specific, because I've seen a bunch of articles online about it, which explain that i need mysql.so (have it), ensure that lib64 is in use (it is) and show me how to test it using isql (it works). My connection string looks like this: DSN=mydb;

And I run it using this command env ODBCINI=/etc/odbc.ini ODBCSYSINI=/etc/ bondi pdf.esp (pdf.esp just contains the code var Db = new DbConnection("odbc:DSN=mydb");;

I'm on a 64bit Debian squeeze install.

Any Ideas? here's the files.
