HI Dave, thanks for the answer.
No, the file after extracting the driver exists with other files within the directory and has that name. Thus, under /usr/lib/hive/lib/native/Linux-amd64-64 i can see several files:
drwx---r-x 3 toor root 4096 Oct 1 09:31 .
drwx---r-x 4 toor root 4096 Sep 24 11:17 ..
-rwxr-xr-x 1 toor root 544 Feb 22 2013 SimbaHiveODBC.did
lrwxrwxrwx 1 toor root 18 Sep 24 11:17 libcrypto.so -> libcrypto.so.1.0.0
-rwxr-xr-x 1 toor root 1943353 Feb 22 2013 libcrypto.so.1.0.0
-rwxr-xr-x 1 toor root 43755670 Feb 22 2013 libhortonworkshiveodbc64.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 toor root 15 Sep 24 11:17 libssl.so -> libssl.so.1.0.0
-rwxr-xr-x 1 toor root 400543 Feb 22 2013 libssl.so.1.0.0
and i can see the two libraries not found within the same directory:
libssl.so.1.0.0 => not found
libcrypto.so.1.0.0 => not found
the problem now is how to make the driver used the libraries. If I put these libraries in /usr/lib64, then no ssh, sftp will work and then i will have no access to the machine (this happened to me yesterday), so how can i proceed?
