Pervasive Unix/Linux Connections

Although remote users only need to install database drivers, Pervasive does not give this option, so a full install is needed. The instructions below assume that the installation is being done from CD-ROM.

  1. Change user to root.
  2. Mount the installation CD-ROM, and from its directory, type the command: rpm –ivh filename.rpm
    Where filename.rpm is the name of the file that contains the installation files.
    Pervasive will install automatically.
    For Pervasive to work correctly a new data source needs to be created.
  3. To create a new data source use the command: dsnadd –dsn=dsn_name –host=host_name –sdsn=DEMODATA Where dsn_name is the name of the client; host_name is the name or IP address of the host server. DEMODATA is the name of a demonstration database set up when Pervasive is installed.
  4. Set the environment variable SQLSERVER to the DSN name. This can be done with a command, which will only last for the current session, or by mapping the environment variable SQLSERVER to the DSN name.
    The command for the current session is: export SQLSERVER=DSN_name To find out where to map the SQLSERVER environment variable to the DSN name, ask your system administrator.
