NetBSD 2.0.2 NetBSD 2.0.2 (GENERIC) #0: Wed Mar 23 08:53:42 UTC 2005 firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/builds/ab/netbsd-2-0-2-RELEASE/i386/200503220140Z-obj/home/builds/ab/netbsd-2-0-2-RELEASE/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC i386
I ran mysqld (4.1.12), and tried to open a database in Open Office (1.4.2nb2). I would have used text, but had to use mysql to specify double endline record separator. Also to make a datasource I had to write over the Open Office books one (now not accessible now). When I tried to open the database, "the connection to the data source could not be established" and it says libodbc.so (I reinstalled that lib.) Maybe I had the path wrong, it is unclear where it refers to. Also when I tried to open a path it says that lib is corrupted (I still typed it but apparently that matters for opening the database.).
run mysqld 4.1.12, then in Open Office 1.4.2nb2 if you can put in a path to one, try to open anything from it. It mentions libodbc.so in both cases.
