Here''s what I did to fix it.

1. For reasons not known to me, the trick presented in another forum of doing a symbolic link to and in the install directory, ie, xtuple3.2.0Beta, doesn''t work with this release.  To correct this, as root:

# ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
# ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

2. There are two libraries missing in my install that are needed to get the driver working.  You can find what it missing in your installation with ldd:

# ldd /usr/local/xtuple-3.2.0Beta/sqldrivers/
and look for lines which say \"not found\".  These must be satisfied.  In my case, ldd reported: => /usr/lib/ (0xb7ead000) (after the item 1 fix above) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7d67000) (after the item1 fix above) => not found => not found

To fix the latter two, in Yast Software Management install compat-readline4 and termcap packages.

Up and Running!
