Thanks Kdo, but that rpm is for libdb.so.3 (Berkeley DataBase) and I need the libdb2.so (or maybe libdb2.so.1) file (library for access to a DB2 server).

Also, I need it for a SuSE 9.1 Pro :(

thanks.

:o Sooooooooooooorrry!!

I've just find out that the "file" actually was a link to libdb.so.3 *sighs ashamed*

You see, I already have a SuSE 8 box running perfectly and accessing the DB2. I have SuSE 9.1 in this other box alro running perfectly, but it doesn't have a libdb2.so file (as in the suse 8), so I checked the suse 8 and libdb2.so is a ln -s to libdb.so.3.

Now I created the link to libdb.so.3 but still doesn't work. WHat should I do now? ldconfig?

That covers a lot of ground.  What's failing?

'llo!

OK, What I was trying to do is connect Domino to a DB2 with unixODBC, using iSeries Client Access ODBC drivers. Domino tries to access db2 _directly_ looking for libdb2.so in the installation directory, it must be the db2 driver (usually named libdb2.so too, but also a link to the libdb.so.3 as I could notice). Now, after I noticed it was a link, I tried to check the connection with IBM's dctest program unsuccesfully. The environmental variables weren't exported (ODBCINI, PATH), I also did ldconfig with all the library directories in my system haha :P

I already had the libodbc.so configured for a SQL Server connection. After this, the DSN for the DB2 connection was sucesfully runned with the ODBC connection of dctest (not the db2 connection).

And... that's my Haloween story. haha :P

Sorry for the trouble.

I'll request for the question to be closed by the Administrators if you have no objection. :S

Advice please. :)

Sorry for stepping away -- it's been a heck of a day...


Glad that you got up and running.  It's amazing how many DB2 problems wind up being some place other than where the problem suggests.
