[erlang-questions] ODBC and x64
Sun Apr 22 04:21:25 CEST 2007
After using Erlang like crazy in my free time the last couple of weeks I
tried to hook up a database and find that the odbcserver is not present!
Looking at the config.log it appears that configuration is failing as
libodbc32 cannot be found.
I am using Suse 10.2 Linux on an x64 system and have both 32 and 64 bit
ODBC libraries installed (in /usr/lib/libodbc.so and
/usr/lib64/libodbc.so). A simple softlink from /usr/lib64/libodbc32.so to
/usr/lib/libodbc.so does not help.
How do I get Erlang working? Or am I completely hosed? If so, is there
an alternative way to connect to a SQL database (MySQL or Postgres -
preferably the latter). I'm desperate enough to compile as 32 bit if that
would help (I have 4GB RAM so I guess it would be OK?) - how would I do
PS Bundling the config.log for odbc.
PPS Typically when installing a program configure prints a summary saying
what sub-components will not be used. It would have been nice to know
earlier about this problem. Perhaps the Erlang configure could do this
