Updated unixODBC packages that add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The unixODBC packages contain a library for programs that use the ODBC standard to connect to database servers.
This update divides the unixODBC package into a main package and a unixODBC-libs sub-package. The main package now contains only command-line utility programs (isql and others), while unixODBC-libs contains all the library files that are needed by other applications. The unixODBC-devel and unixODBC-kde sub-packages remain as they were. This split allows unixODBC-libs to be installed concurrently with unixODBC64-libs from the newer unixODBC64 package set, thus allowing applications that use either version of the ODBC API to be supported at the same time. With this update, unixODBC-libs can be installed concurrently with unixODBC64-libs from the newer unixODBC64 package set and applications that use either version of the ODBC API can be used concurrently.
All users of unixODBC are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add this enhancement.
