	Are you using the full path to psqlodbc.so in your odbcinst.ini - 
e.g.,

Driver        =  /usr/local/lib/psqlodbc.so

or wherever it got installed?

	In a word, don't. I'm not up on the history of that driver, but
I have the impression that it's fairly obsolete. I've never gotten it to
work properly. Someone else on the list may be able to shed some light
on its history.

	By the way, I think you can drop the Setup variable from your
odbcinst.ini. I think that only had meaning for the unixODBC version of
the driver. Here's what the postgres entry in my odbcinst.ini looks
like.

[PostgreSQL]
Description		= PostgreSQL 7.4.2 driver (psqlodbc-7.3.2)
Driver			= /opt3/lib/psqlodbc.so
FileUsage		= 1
CPTimeout		= 
CPReuse			= 
CommLog			= 1
Debug			= 1


Cheers,
Bob
