I just built tora from svn (rev. 3227) on Slackware64-13.0 and it seems to work fine with an oracle 11g database.
While tora was building, I noticed the message:
-- PostgreSQL environment found: /usr/include /usr/lib64/libpq.so
so I assumed that Postgresql support would be built in. However when I try to add a new connection, the only "Connection provider" options available are: MySQL, Oracle (Instant Client) and Oracle (TNS).
Is something else needed to connect to a postgresql instance?
pgsql support is dependednt on:
a) native pgsql libraries (you have it, as cmake found it)
b) Qt4 pgsql module. Do you heva this one installed?
search somewhere like in /usr/lib64/qt4/plugins/sqldrivers/libqsqlpsql.so
I don't know how it's handled in slack - I did not find anything on slackware.org, just here: http://www.liwjatan.at/slackware/business.php5
Thanks for the good advice - libqsqlpsql.so was indeed missing and the link you suggested gave advice about how to create it. After I built & installed it, I was able to connect to the postgresql instance with tora.
cool, can you summarize your steps to install tora on slack, please? I will add it into knowlege base, if you send it to me.
