I have just installed LO 3.5.3 and the native connector worked immediately
out of the box on Windows/Vista. Regarding ODBC: yes, my experience tells me
-- don't use it under Linux. There are bugs such as not SHOWING default values
for columns (even though they are actually stored correctly). Reluctantly I am now
using JDBC, but it at least seems to work correctly (even if it is a bit slow!).
One thing that has also bothered me with Linux/LO/Base: every couple of
minutes performance becomes dreadful. The systems monitor shows high CPU-usage
of my 4-CPU, 2.4 GH PC then. Only when I then save the Base-file (*.odb) does
everything return to normal. I have set the automatic save interval to 60 minutes,
but it seems to me that some action triggers the degradation. I haven't got
to the bottom of that as yet.

Oh, come on. It is obvious which version is which and I had the
Windows one. The instructions for creating the driver are very simple
and clear and I followed them. When it said driver not found it meant
diving into the depts of Windows which I am reluctant to do.
Fernand says that the native driver does work for Windows XP. So I must
have looked at some out of date documentation that said otherwise.
In that connection, Heinrich, I am sure I saw something to the effect that
if you are using Linux you should use JDBC and not ODBC. Can't find it
Thanks to everyone for the suggestions as to what I can do now to get
it working but I don't need to do anything do I, just learn how to get
the best out of OOo Base. Like importing data from a CSV file which is
much more complicated than it need be.
