Still a problem...  I need suggestions of how do I
troubleshoot.  Any tools or techniques I might use?
Thank you for all your previous help!

Some info about my case, in case if needed:
RedHat 9, PostgreSQL 7.4.2, unixODBC 2.2.8 (driver
manager), psqlODBC 07.03.0200 driver.  The driver's
directory: /usr/local/lib/

>Are you using the full path to in your
>odbcinst.ini ?

I modified the 'odbcinst.ini' as suggested:

--- odbcinst.ini ---
Description	= psqlODBC for PostgreSQL
Driver = /usr/local/lib/
#Setup = /usr/local/lib/
FileUsage	= 1
CommLog = 1
Debug = 1
---(END) odbcinst.ini ---

But still, if I enter literally (I set my **PostgreSQL
account** password to 'pword' which is different from
my reqular user account password).

isql -v examples_ODBC yury pword

'isql' hangs and I have to kill it with ^C.
Same thing happens if I uncomment
'Setup = /usr/local/lib/'
and the same log files are produced. Similarly, the
'DataManager' or 'DataManagerII (what's a difference?)
GUI applications hang once I enter the password and
also produces the same log files.  More advanced
software such as OpenOffice's data sources obviously do
not work (they work with the JDBC driver though and do
that even using md5-encrypted passwords).  Here are two
debugging log files:

[1074834880]CC_connect: entering...
[1074834880]CC_connect(): DSN = 'examples_ODBC', server
= 'localhost', port = '5432', database = 'examples',

                conn_settings='' conn_encoding='OTHER'
conn=134628032, query=' '
---(END) psqlodbc_yury6543.log--------------------

I either don't see or don't understand the trouble in
the log files (no explicit ERROR messages).  I also
tried leaving my system wide open securitywise as the
rest of my config files suggest.  unixODBC driver did
not work with 'md5' or 'crypt' passwords, but did work
with 'trust' or 'password' in 'pg_hba.conf'.

[ODBC Data Sources]
examples_ODBC = Database Examples

Database = examples
Description	= Various tutorial examples
ReadOnly = No
Servername = localhost
Port = 5432
Protocol = 7.4
Driver = PostgreSQL_psqlODBC
Username =
Password =
Trace = Yes
Tracefile = /tmp/ODBC.log
CommLog = 1
Debug = 1
---(END) .odbc.ini-----

My systemwide 'odbc.ini' is empty.

tcpip_socket = true
max_connections = 63
password_encryption = false
lc_messages = 'en_US.UTF-8'
lc_monetary = 'en_US.UTF-8'
lc_numeric = 'en_US.UTF-8'
lc_time = 'en_US.UTF-8'
# The rest are defaults.
---(END) postgresql.conf---

local all all              trust
host  all all trust
---(END) pg_hba.conf---

Again, I will be thankful for your good advice!
