Hi James, thanks for reply :)

I guess now is easy to found error...

I've installed 0.82 but I got the same error... looking with osql (a
great tool, thanks) I can found the error but I don't know how to
solve this...

I guess the osql make a system call to /bin/host but on freebsd the
returns is different from linux, take a look on error:

[root at bsd ~]# osql -S LekkusLOJA -U $DBUSER -P $DBPASS
looking for odbc.ini and odbcinst.ini in /usr/local/etc
	reading "/root/.odbc.ini"
[LekkusLOJA] not found in "/root/.odbc.ini"
	reading "/usr/local/etc/odbc.ini"
[LekkusLOJA] found in "/usr/local/etc/odbc.ini"
