Teradata ODBC Driver
A test driver was supplied by Teradata for RedHat. The package was
installed under Debian using alien (via wajig):
$ wajig rpminstall tdodbc-03.06.00.00-1.x86_64.rpm
Sample configuration files appear in /usr/odbc/unixodbc.ini and /usr/odbc/odbc.ini.
A Debian package can be created with:
$ alien -d --scripts tdodbc-03.06.00.00-1.x86_64.rpm
Testing will involve creating one's own /.odbc.ini, and placing the contents of the sample odbcinst.ini into /etc/odbcinst.ini (is it required in that location?). But tdata.so complains that it can't find libodbcinst.so, which is there in /usr/lib64/, but perhaps this is a problem with LD_LIBRARY_PATH things in R?
