I have been trying to get the same configuration (only PostgreSQL 7.1)
going for a while now, I have tried both unixODBC and iodbc, both have
failed, unixODBC has its own PostgreSQL ODBC driver
With iodbc i have been (trying) to use the driver from PostgreSQL
(, with the unixODBC driver I can't get the tables in
the DataManager, however I can make queries alright, and with the
iodbc driver I get the following error when using the testodbc sample
program that comes with the sources:

[iODBC][Driver Manager]Dialog failed, SQLSTATE=IM008

I'm using a Debian (testing) distribution.

Have you (or anyone else reading this) had any luck whatsoever getting
this thing in place?

Does anyone else knows what might be the problem?
