I have installed R 2.13 in opensuse 11.04. I wanted to access a MySQL db using R. I Installed RODBC without any error. I can even load the RODBC (usinglibrary('RODBC')). When I tried to connect to db using

library(RODBC)
channel = odbcDriverConnect(connection = "Driver={MySQL ODBC 5.1 Driver};Server=myserver;Database=db;User=me;Password=***;", readOnlyOptimize = TRUE)

It says,

Warning messages:

1: In odbcDriverConnect(connection = "Driver={MySQL ODBC 5.1 Driver};Server=server;Database=bd;User=me;Password=abcd;",  :
  [RODBC] ERROR: state IM002, code 0, message [unixODBC][Driver Manager]Data source name not found, and no default driver specified
2: In odbcDriverConnect(connection = "Driver={MySQL ODBC 5.1 Driver};Server=server;Database=db;User=me;Password=abcd;",  :
  ODBC connection failed

How do I solve this ?
