Hey guys,

I have tried every stack overflow site there is for solutions - I’m on OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 and running python 2.7.  Unixodbc simply refuses to get linked and there are 0 submissions about how to do this successfully from mac (other then brew install etc…. Which obv didn’t work)?  Please help!

legal-mac01:site-packages atrombley$ brew install unixodbc  --universal

==> Downloading http://www.unixodbc.org/unixODBC-2.3.2.tar.gz

Already downloaded: /Library/Caches/Homebrew/unixodbc-2.3.2.tar.gz

==> ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/Cellar/unixodbc/2.3.2_1 --enable-gui=no

==> make install

Error: The `brew link` step did not complete successfully

The formula built, but is not symlinked into /usr/local

Could not symlink etc/odbc.ini

/usr/local/etc is not writable.

You can try again using:

  brew link unixodbc
