I am trying to work with RH6.2 + Apache1.3.14 + PHP 4.0.4 on a machine where someone else (mis)installed IBM DB2 version 7.1 for linux. I compiled PHP as a DSO using the --with-ibm-db2 switch.

Apparently the did not correctly setup the environment to make DB2 setup available for the Apache process: when i try to connect to DB2 using odbc_connect() I get "binary trash" inside the warning i get from PHP. I think that "trash" appears where the error message from DB2 should appear instead.

If i restart the apache process after setting up the required DB2 environment variables for user root (i.e. now I can connect to DB2 as root) everithing works ok: i.e., if I connect to a non-existant DB I get 'readable' error message instead of trash.

if you've poorly installed your DB, theres very little PHP 
can do.
