  • Could anyone post an updated tutorial as i’m also trying to connect to an MSSQL server. This problems with this tutorial are:

    • No such directory ‘pub/Linux/ALPHA/freetds/stable’ - but i managed to find it elsewhere
    • invalid variable name: `–prefix’ - when i try to build the library and I can’t progress from this
