"4.5 Compiling the Oracle ODBC Driver Demos

If you plan to compile and run the Oracle ODBC Driver demos, then follow these steps:


If you do not have unixODBC DriverManager installed, then download it from the following Web site:

Set the ODBCDM_HOME environment variable to point to the directory where you installed DriverManager.

Run the following make file to compile the Oracle ODBC Driver demos:

make -f buildodbcdemo ODBCDM_HOME=DriverManager_location

When trying to execute this :

make -f buildodbcdemo ODBCDM_HOME=DriverManager_location


[root@localhost ~]# cd /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/xe/rdbms/demo
[root@localhost demo]# make -f buildodbcdemo ODBCDM_HOME=/opt/unixODBC-2.3.1
make: *** No rule to make target `odbcdemo.o', needed by `buildodbcdemo'. Stop.

Obviously the the file is missing what now ? Do I need to do this part of the cookbook anyway?
