Dear Sebastian,

I'm sorry. You are right. But there are a lot of operating systems,
versions and the developer is using a single computer with a single
version of his PostgreSQL and Linux.

I'm using for example RedHat 4.2 on a i386 , PostgreSQL 6.3.2.

There are a lot of other user on Solaris, on Free-BSD, on HP-UX, Irix.
It's a good thing that PostgreSQL is ported on many operating systems
and this could cause trouble sometimes. But we have luck, the problems
could be solved with a few minor corections.

I am sorry that I have unsubscribed from psql-questions . I was waiting
for questions on PgAccess directly (teo(at)flex(dot)ro) or through the
psql-interfaces mail list. Now I have subscribed again on pgsql-question
list and I will listen on that too.

I am realy sorry. I had the same trouble as you many times but I learned
to contact the developer and I have always get quickly answers.

You have to tell me what version of rpm is (i.e. what version of
PostgreSQL is)

Also, what version, 6.3.2 ? Please send me directly all these
information and I will try to help you as soon as I can. Maybe I could
send you some libraries precompiled for your system.

so far ... so good

must be in /lib directory.

Adding a -lcrypt near -lpq in Makefile (didn't recall because I was
compiling PostgreSQL on RedHat 5.0 just once ... some time ago). Anyone
using RedHat 5.0 could help ?

Tomorow I will try to make some precompiled libraries (libpq and
libpgtcl) for both RedHat 4.2 and RedHat 5.0 and for the latest 6.3.2
library. They would be available for download directly from my site ( )

Thank you for your feedback, we would try to improve services for
PgAccess. In order to do that, I would need your help.

The most important thing : Don't loose your patience ... and don't go
back to Windows :-)
