Hi,
 
unixODBC-2.2.14 in Red Hat and Fedora is shipping libodbcinst.so.2.
According to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=498311 the ABI has
changed. Where can I find these changes? The unixODBC release notes for
2.2.13 and 2.2.14 are not specific on this issue. Also, Mandriva is shipping
libunixODBC1-2.2.14 with libodbcinst.so.1. Same for Solaris CSWunixodbc
2.2.14. So it seems more a Red Hat than a unixODBC issue.  
We develop an ODBC driver and use odbcinst for installation and
configuration purposes, obviously. The functions we use are:
SQLInstallDriver,SQLConfigDataSource,SQLWriteDSNToIni,SQLRemoveDSNFromIni,SQ
LValidDSN,
SQLWritePrivateProfileString,SQLGetPrivateProfileString,SQLConfigDriver,SQLI
nstallerError,
SQLPostInstallerError,SQLInstallDriverEx,SQLGetConfigMode,SQLSetConfigMode. 
If drivers and their installer are not concerned by the changes from .1 to
.2 we could link dynamically to libodbcinst.so... Some Oracle ODBC driver
users with a similar problem have had succes creating a symbolic link
libodbcinst.so.1 to libodbcinst.so.2 but that is clearly not a solution for
us.
 
thanks, Ludo
