Having a problem installing DBD::ODBC on a i386 Fedora 8 box. --- perl Makfile.PL returns
The DBD::ODBC module needs to link with an ODBC 'Driver Manager'.
(The Driver Manager, in turn, needs one or more database specific ODBC
drivers. The DBD::ODBC module does _not_ include any ODBC drivers!)
You need to indicate where your ODBC Driver Manager is installed.
You can do this ether by setting the ODBCHOME environment variable
or by running 'perl Makefile.PL -o odbcdir'.
If you do not have an ODBC Driver Manager you should try to get hold of
the unixODBC packages for your system or build it from source (see
yet I installed unixODBC via yum but I cannot find any directory that will make Makefile.PL happy.
root@scan DBD-ODBC-1.15# yum info unixODBC
Name : unixODBC
Arch : i386
Size : 2.0 M
Repo : installed
