MYSQL ODBC install on RedHat Linux
07-19-2011 07:10 AM
Seems to be a dependency problem of some kind, but if anyobe has experience please reply:
rpm -iv mysql-connector-odbc-3.51.28-1.rhel5.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libodbcinst.so.1 is needed by mysql-connector-odbc-3.51.28-1.rhel5.i386

As for the issue, you need to install the libodbcinst libraries. This is included with the unixODBC driver manager package.

@Aaaron- hang on a bit. Our admin is now going to re-install everything, and see if it works. Yes it could be a path issue since I can see the libodbcinst.so.1 after the admin got it installed somehow. but we have tried symbolic links and other stuff but no luck.
we even tried this (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=498311)
ln -s libodbcinst.so.2 libodbcinst.so.1
but no joy so far.
let me see how it goes after the install
