Using Redhat 7.3 and

> version
platform i686-pc-linux-gnu
arch     i686             
os       linux-gnu        
system   i686, linux-gnu  
major    1                
minor    6.1              
year     2002             
month    11               
day      01               
language R                

I am trying to install the RODBC package.  Upon using

> install.packages("RODBC")

I get the following:

checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables... 
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
checking for library containing SQLTables... no
configure: error: "no ODBC driver manager found"
ERROR: configuration failed for package 'RODBC'

Delete downloaded files (y/N)? y

Warning message: 
Installation of package RODBC had non-zero exit status in: install.packages("RODBC") 

Earlier I retrieved an rpm file called unixODBC-2.1.1-1.i386.rpm

and I used

rpm -i unixODBC-2.1.1-1.i386.rpm

and received no message of any kind, error or otherwise.

What should I do next, Linux neophyte that I am?

Thanks in advance.
