Centos - SYBASE


Hi there.

I'm attempting to get freetds and sybase up and running on my centos server, mainly for nagios - MSSQL checks. I've installed freetds freetds-devel ok but am having issues getting SYBASE installed. I've had a go via cpan but get a failure on the sybase environment variable. I've set it to /etc where the conf file is located as well as trying /urr/lib64 for the tds libs, but no joy. Has anyone had much luck with this on centos?

export SYBASE=/etc
[root@nagios ~]# echo $SYBASE
/etc

cpan DBD::Sybase

I doubt very much that you installed Sybase to /etc ..

Quote:
Make sure that the SYBASE environment variable points to the Sybase
installation that you want to use for this build. The easiest way
to do this is to source the SYBASE.sh/SYBASE.csh or SYBASE.bat file
in the root directory of the Sybase installation you want to use.
.. is Sybase actually installed ?

Well... I'm attempting to install the Sybase perl module via cpan.... I've installed freetds and attempted various locations for the sybase environment variable. The library files for freetds are in /usr/lib64, but changing the environment variable to this doesn't clear it up.

Most searches online i've found tell you to set it to /usr/local/freetds.... I've tried making symlinks to here from the library file locations. Still no joy.
