Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am running Mandrake 9.1 with Xampp 1.6.6 installed. I installed UnixODBC and the Mysql connector, i can connect to the MySQL test db using isql -v . In PHP (5.2.5) scripts with myqsl_connect() run fine.
I installed the PHP ODBC extension from php5-odbc-5.0.2-1mdk.i586.rpm, which puts the odbc.so in /usr/lib/php5/extensions/: i put a symbolic link to it in /opt/lampp/lib/php/extensions/non-debug-non-zts-20060613/, where php.ini apparently expects it and put a line extension=odbc.so in php.ini. Still php will not run the odbc_connect()line an any script.("undefined function...")
This is in the php startup error log:
PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/opt/lampp/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20060613/odbc.so' - /opt/lampp/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20060613/odbc.so: undefined symbol: empty_string in Unknown on line 0
Probably right; I looked on the internet for the correct version, but no success. Any suggestions ?
Does the latest Mandriva distro include all this ? Maybe it is time for a new Linux box.
Maybe off-topic, but this runs like a charm on a Windows XP box...
