Updated unixODBC packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The unixODBC packages contain a framework that supports accessing databases through the ODBC protocol.
- Prior to this update, the desktop file for unixODBC, ODBCConfig.desktop, contained deprecated options and incorrect values. Consequently, the unixODBC application was not appropriately categorized. In this update, the options and values have been fixed and the application categorization works as intended.
- Previously, file name values were hard-coded in the ODBC Driver Manager. As a consequence, the Driver Manager did not correctly interact with other applications after an update. The current update changes the hard-coded values to dynamically determined ones, and updating no longer causes Driver Manager incompatibilities with other applications.
Users of unixODBC are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
