So may distros, so little time.
How widely can a single .so be spread across different kernels,
libcs and so on?
Even VMWare ships source for their drivers so they can be compiled
for each flavour of kernel.
OK, from that linked page, the requirements are:
• Adaptive Server Enterprise – version 15.7 or later.
• Open Client and Open Server – version 15.7 or later.
• Perl – version 5.14.0 or 5.14.1.
• DBD::SybaseASE driver – no specific version requirements.
• CT-Library – (CT-Lib API) version 15.7.
• Perl DBI – version 1.616.
And this leads to:

And a few Unixes according to http://certification.sybase.com/ucr/productResult.do.
So sparse linux support.
