DBD::Sybase on Debian sarge

[ #29303 ]

So I needed to get DBD::Sybase installed today. Here's my notes:

$ wget
$ wget
$ wget

# apt-get install alien

$ alien --to-deb sybase-openclient-11.1.1-3.i386.rpm
$ alien --to-deb sybase-common-11.9.2-3.i386.rpm
# dpkg -i sybase-openclient_11.1.1-4_i386.deb
# dpkg -i sybase-common_11.9.2-4_i386.deb

make a standard location
# ln -s /opt/sybase-11.9.2 /opt/sybase

fix the locales
emacs /opt/sybase/locales/locales.dat

find the string [linux] and add this directly below:

        locale = en_US, us_english, iso_1

add to ~/.bashrc:
export SYBASE=/opt/sybase/
export PATH=$PATH:$SYBASE/bin

$ source ~/.bashrc

install the perl module:
$ tar xvfz DBD-Sybase-1.07.tar.gz
$ cd DBD-Sybase-1.07
$ perl Makefile.PL
$ make
$ sudo make install
