Subject: DBD-Sybase (1.07) using freetds (0.63): Connection problem (HPUX 11.11)
Date: Dec 20 2005 8:32PM
I am trying to use freetds (0.63) as the driver for DBD::Sybase (1.07) to
communicate with MS SQL 2000 servers. After the build, it does not appear
that DBD::Sybase reconizes the freetds config file
(/usr/local/freetds/freetds.conf), in particular for defining which
host+port make up the server. I even tried it in the local `pwd`. Also,
the "connect" method complains about accepting host+port arguments, and
seems to want a "Server", only. The manpage says it accepts host+port.
I am operating in a HPUX 11.11 environment, and have the DBD::Sybase
statically linked using the freetds drivers. Without passing the 'make
test' phase, DBD::Sybase does not appear to fully install (complains about
not found in @INC). I am using Perl 5.8.7, and DBI-1.48.
Any help would be greatly appreciated (it has been more adventure than I
Thanks, in advance.
