Hi

As far as I understand, there exists a postgres sdbc driver for connections between OpenOffice base and the postgresql server.
Is this driver available in portage or how to get this driver?

Or do you suggest alternative solutions?

there are patches [0]. though, that enables postgresql unconditionally.
I wait until it is properly integrated into libreoffice tree [2].

you may add "PostgreSQL" to the list of GentooBase section in patches/dev300/apply, see [1].
I wonder if they apply and build. :o

have fun!

geki,

Could you please flesh out a little more what needs to be done to make sdbc work? I have added your overlay, but I'm not sure exactly how to modify the ebuild or files without them being overwritten, or causing problems with checksums or whatever. I've noticed that the postgresql-sdbc functionality is usually separated into its own package in other distros. Is that something that could be done here too? A separate ebuild could build the plugin until it becomes officially integrated into upstream's source tree?

Thanks!

then, you just need to copy the postgresql patches [0] into my overlay under app-office/libreoffice/files and digest the libreoffice ebuild (ebuild /path/to/ebuild digest).

that is the fun of source vs. binary distros. :twisted:

p.s.: I still wonder if they apply. :o . . . reports?

hmm, I could add 'epatch_user' to src_prepare if you guys prefer.
so that you can put your patches under /etc/portage/cat/pkg/ or so ... even simpler ... going to add that.

edit #1

so, if you know how to add additional patches to firefox and the like you are set. otherwise ... google? :P
