Robb, Michael (or anyone else)

Can you provide a sample Sybase interfaces file (used under Redhat 5.0) ?
I'm not clear on what the format is. I'm currently getting the following
error (displayed using hard-coded debug in CTlib.c)

        ct_connect: network packet layer: internal net library error:
specified server name attribute could not be found

After this error, the CTlib code CORE dumps in ct_client_msg.

I've tried what Robb and Michael listed in terms of configuration....but the
'make test' still fails with a core dump.

Thanks for your help....Mike

I had a similar problem under RedHat 5.0 and after multiple installs it went
away. I attempted to reproduce my original problem and was unable to. I
my error was related to not setting each of the configuration items
Sometimes I had the interfaces set right, and not DSQUERY, etc.  Also doing
make install seemed to help on the next install pass.

Make sure you are using the latest CTLIB and SybPerl modules

The following must all be set correctly:
CTLIB module:
  interfaces file in the CTLIB module (root of wherever CTLIb was placed)
  SYBPLATFORM=Linux in the environment - not everyone has needed to do this,
but I had to

SypPerl module
  Verify the following in CONFIG:
    SYBASE={root directory of CTLIB module, where the interfaces file is}
    Make the line "LINKTYPE=static" is not commented in the CONFIG file

  make sure DSQUERY is set properly in the environment
  do a perl Makefile.PL - do this any time the CONFIG file is changed
  do a make clean - just in case
  Follow the normal install instructions
  If the test fails - this is weird but it worked for me, I have not
that it is necessary
    make install
    make clean
    restart the install for SybPerl

I hope this helps
