You could check those variables 

*	ODBCINI - The path to an odbc.ini (.odbc.ini) file.
*	ODBCSYSINI - The directory in which the odbcinst.ini and
"system" odbc.ini file are stored.

This is a example how you could set.


$ export ODBCSYSINI=/usr/local/etc

$ export ODBCINI=/usr/local/etc/odbc.ini


With oracle you should check what library  are they installing? and you
could be sure use the 32 bits library and the library path ( where you
find the 32 bits library for oracle) have to be set in LD_LIBRARY_PATH


See you.

Subject: [unixODBC-support] Installation of the Oracle ODBC driver


I installed an Oracle client on a Fedora core linux and continued to
install the herewith provided ODBC driver. Unfortunately I could not
find the right parameter. It seems a simple question, but I could not
found out the path of my driver manager. Knows anybody how this can be
found out? By this I realized that I do not know what file is directly
related when speaking about the driver manager. Is is the library or is
it the configuration? 

Executing odbcinst --version reveales unixODBC 2.2.5

executing odbcinst -j reveales unixODBC 2.2.5

DRIVERS ... /etc/odbcinst.ini

SYSTEM DATA SOURCES.../etc/odbc.ini

USER DATA SOURCES ... /root/.odbc.ini


For installation of the oracle driver the driver manager path is needed.
A trial with /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin was not succesful. The error
message with those paths (and with /etc) was 

*** INI file not found. Driver Manager not installed

Does anybody has some hints?


Thank you in advance
