    Ok. The -q -d options should have given you a list of supported databases. As it choked you now know your unixODBC-2.2.12,mdbtools-0.6pre1 install is broken. Probably because it is pre-release. Obviously you need to get this reinstalled and working. Probably best to go with a known stable release FWIW.

    There is a tutorial here which details why you are getting the error message you are (it is probably not the "right" error message due to a 32 char limit).

    Good luck
