Need help to install ODBC driver in hp-unix 11.31 to create db link from oracle database installed on unix to mysql database.
Will be really thankful if you could please provide me the procedure to follow for it.

ODBC is a MS-Windows protocol and by default is not available in UNIX. Various vendors provide ODBC compatible drivers for UNIX. They are usually compatible with most ODBC features, but rarely 100%. To my knowledge, these are all software for purchase products. Last time I looked there were no free versions out there.
I would suggest you search the internet for "ODBC for HP-UX". You should get several vendor links that will lead you to a product to use.

Thanks for the response.
I found drivers and the procedure to follow for the installation. I start doing installation, and was able to pass the first huddle by executing the first commande ./configure --prefix="directory/path".
But after i tried for the second and third command i.e. make and make install it failed with the errors mentioned in the attached file for the refrence.
Please have a look towards the attached fine and advice.
Awaiting for the valuable advices from you all experts.

This is the wrong architecture. What do these show:

That's a Linux application that your trying to compile on HP-UX. To do that you have to find all the supporting shared libraries and port them first. It's a long and involved process with no guarantee of success and definitely no support from anybody. HP use to offer a Linux to HP-UX porting kit, but those are no longer offered. Internet Express also use to include Linux development tools for HP-UX but those are also gone. If this is for a production application you have or are trying to develop, I strongly suggest you look at the commercial products on the market. Their the only reasonably stable and supported options that I know of for ODBC on HP-UX.

I didn't want the file, I wanted you to execute file(1) on that shlib to find the architecture..
Please delete your attachment.

I will be really thankful if you could please help me to resolve this issue, its really very important and urgent too. As am a newbie to hp-ux so not much aware about the installation/configuration area.
Your help will be highly appreciated.

Since I can't see what you have, not much I can do to help.
I would assume these foreign devil tools would just work. The only problem might be if you use the bundled C compiler to link. That driver will NOT create shlibs.
Do you have any warnings?

You can please review the attached file contains the error or warning messages on running make and makeinstall commands after running successfully ./configure command.

This seems exactly the same as before. Try a clean and see if any compiler/linker messages.
