I'm no expert on databases, but some posts I've saved over the years 
suggest you need to use "SetDriverPath" early in your script to tell the 
engine where to find the drivers.

Also, your first post mentioned you'd installed the .bundle external, 
but that is OS X only and JaguarPC is a Linux setup. Above, it looks 
like you've changed to the Linux libraries instead, which would be correct.
