[syslog-ng] syslog-ng fails logging to existing sqlite database

Hello everybody,

I would like to ask you a question about libdbi (version with libdbi-drivers 0.8.3).
I'm using syslog-ng on my Yocto Poky 1.7 Linux distro. I need to log my data into a sqlite3 database and everything works fine, but the database has not be written: no log data stored.
According to debug infos, it seems that syslog-ng recognizes that the database exists, connects to it, found (with the sql statement "SELECT * FROM tableName WHERE 0=1) that the table named "tableName" exists but it gets an error when verifying columns' names; so it tries to add a column with that name to the table, but the operation fails since this column already exists.
I've googled and search on the web, but I've found nothing interesting. Trying syslog-ng 3.6.4 doesn't change anything, while using libdbi 0.9.0 returns an error when compiling due to mismatch between function signature in the source and header file.

Have you any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
