First, don't use template1, create a new database for what you want to do. Try
Second, make sure you "createuser" for the username under which you will be
connecting to the database, use your name for now.
in odbcinst.ini (likely in /etc or /usr/local/etc depending on how you
installed it.), describe the PostgreSQL driver, as:
Description = PostgreSQL ODBC Driver by unixODBC
Driver = /usr/local/lib/libodbcpsql.so
Setup = /usr/local/lib/libodbcpsqlS.so
(substitute your path for what I used.)
Now, in your .odbc.ini file in your home directory,
Description = PostgreSQL
Driver = PostgreSQL
Trace = No
Database = ldap
Servername = localhost
UserName = annissa
Port = 5432
Protocol = 6.4
ReadOnly = No
RowVersioning = No
ShowSystemTables = No
ShowOidColumn = No
FakeOidIndex = No
You should then be able to connect, with the assumptions:
Your user name is "annissa."
The PG server is localhost.

So I re-confiured both using the with-odbc option. then, I installed the ODBC package, firs the source, then as some things went wrong, i thought I had done something wrong with installation, so I re-installed everything, with RPMs.
