Missing libodbc.so symbolic link

Bug Description

Binary package hint: unixodbc

The mono library System.Data.Odbc searches for libodbc.so but the unixodbc package does not create this symbolic link. That means ODBCConnection.Open() fails with a LibraryNotFound exception.

I was able to fix this by running
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libodbc.so.1 /usr/lib/libodbc.so

The unixodbc package should create this link automatically so mono works properly.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

/usr/lib/libodbc.so is part of unixodbc-dev as it should be. This is probably a problem with mono then.

affects: unixodbc (Ubuntu) → mono (Ubuntu)
