K1 on RedHat 8.0, FreeTDS "current" snapshot of
16.03.2003, unixODBC 184.108.40.206, MSSQL Server 7.0 SP3.
If an exception is raised in
TSqlConnectionOdbc.connect, then Kylix just hangs (at
least for me). The technical problem seems to be with
exception handling probably not working properly.
In the .diff attached the problematic lines concerning
SQL_GETDATA_EXTENSIONS have been commented
out. I am not sure that if this option is not supported you
should just drop the connection ;-), and selects work
fine for me now. It seems to be wrong policy, at least at
the connect time.
The "freshest current" snapshot of FreeTDS (of
07.05.2003) was unable to connect to server at all, so I
used a rather old one.
