I'm trying to setup pervasive client to access a windows server.

  1. Extracted Pervasive.SQL-Client-Core-11.30-061.000.x86_64.tar.gz to /usr/local/
  2. I installed unixodbc (x64)
  3. I ran ./ from /usr/local/psql/etc
  4. I linked /usr/local/psql/etc/odbc*.ini to /etc


[Pervasive] Driver=/usr/local/psql/lib/ Driver64=/usr/local/psql/lib64/


[ODBC Data Sources] DALCON = Pervasive ODBC

[DALCON] Description=Maestro's DALCON database DBQ=DALCON Driver=Pervasive Servername=DALCON3 Username=username Password=password


isql -v dalcon

[01000][unixODBC][Driver Manager]Can't open lib '/usr/local/psql/lib64/' : file not found [ISQL]ERROR: Could not SQLConnect

root@dalcon-www:/usr/local/psql/etc# ls -l /usr/local/psql/lib64/ lrwxrwxrwx 1 psql pvsw 15 sep 13 08:47 /usr/local/psql/lib64/ -> root@dalcon-www:/usr/local/psql/etc# ls -l /usr/local/psql/lib64/ lrwxrwxrwx 1 psql pvsw 26 sep 13 08:10 /usr/local/psql/lib64/ -> root@dalcon-www:/usr/local/psql/etc# ls -l /usr/local/psql/lib64/ -rwxrwxrwx 1 psql pvsw 662429 jan 18 2013 /usr/local/psql/lib64/

Any idea why? I'm running on the root user.

P.S. The formating is bad, dunno why :S

one must copy psql's .basrsc to root's .bashrc
