Following the Linux Journal's article, I've downloaded the last
freetds version. Gunzip-ed and untar-ed it. Then:
#make; make install
Here, the article says "by default FreeTDS installs to
/usr/local/freetds" but it does not. Since I have not changed the PATH
with the -prefix=(PATH) I don't know why it does not appear on that
So, where's the freetds? I've tried with
But I'm sure I am wrong. By the way, many tds lib files (libct.la,
libsybdb.so, libtds.a, etc) appear under /usr/local/lib after
As a result of this, when I try to install DBD:sybase it fails:
# cd /opt/DBD-Sybase-1.07
# perl Makefile.pl
Please set SYBASE in CONFIG, or set the $SYBASE environment
variable at Makefile.PL line 98, line 44.
To sum up: I am not able to set a proper environment variable path for
SYBASE. Please help me! Thanks.
