We installed the latest version of mdbTools on our
linux box and are trying to get it to work. We can't
find the file libmdbodbc.so. There appears to be
several files named libmdbodbc but none with the .so
extention. We installed with the
--with-unixodbc=/usr/local option. Any ideas?

    We finally got mdbTools installed we think correctly. We
    had to manually create .so files for the library files and
    drivers. The install did not create them.

    I am having trouble getting the ODBC driver to work. It
    appears that mdbTools doesn't work with an Access 2002
    database. When I attempt to open it with either the
    mdbTools utilities or the odbc driver it won't open
    correctly. With mdb-tables, for instance, it doesn't show
    the correct table. It shows 2 temporary tables but it
    doesn't show the actual table that is in the database. With
    the odbc driver trying to open it with isql it just crashes
    and doesn't open it at all.

    If I save the database in Access 97 format and then try to
    open it with mdbtools, mdb-tables does show the correct
    table and the odbc driver will open it using isql. Hoever,
    my java program is still unable to open the odbc connection
    and get data. I get a null pointer exception when it tries
    to open the database with the odbc driver.

    Has anyone gotten this to work?
