collective.recipe.mxzopeda is a buildout recipe that is largely based on collective.recipe.mxodbc, a recipe created by Jarn to installed eGenix mxODBC 3.0.X. That recipe will install mxODBC 3.0 and also build an mx.base package from source. For the Zope database adapter eGenix releases prebuilt packages with mxODBC 2.1 and the Zope Database Adapter included. That's what this recipe is for.
You can add this recipe to your buildout by adding a section like this:
recipe = collective.recipe.mxzopeda
license-key = puty-ourl-icen-seco-dehe-repl-ease
licsenses-archive = mxzopeda-licenses.zip
The licenses archive should be a zip file with one directory for every license you want to use with the license key as file name and the license file you got from eGenix for that code in the directory.
The recipe tries to detect the correct platform to download the prebuilt archive for, but has so far only been verified on Apple OS X universal systems and Ubuntu server 8.10 for i686. Please report any problems if you encounter problems with other architectures.
