In latest osgeo4w qgis master builds, the db manager's spatialite node is gone, with only postgresql node showing up. The necessary osgeo4w packages to support spatialite are installed, and db manager could handle spatialite under qgis master not so long ago.

There was a recent osgeo4w spatialite package update, could it be the cause? Under qgis master ubuntu build, the spatialite node is present.

(Note: on the same machine, spatialite shows up in db manager when running osgeo4w's qgis 2.0)

Nathan also confirmed spatialite node missing on his running windows version of qgis master build.

You need to install pyspatialite package

Alex, please re-open, the osgeo4w pyspatialite package is installed (as stated in description).

Alexander confirmed via IRC that on his machine, both the 32-bit and 64-bit osgeo4w qgis master packages do not exhibit this problem. That got me to look into this some more. Deleting the osgeo4w directory (and the installation directory) and re-installing led to the same issue.

Then I realized I was running a very old (>1-y-o) osgeo4w-setup.exe file (pre-dating the 32-bit / 64-bit architecture). I've downloaded a new osgeo4w-setup executable, let's see if it'll make a difference.

Ok, so problem was indeed my very old osgeo4w setup executable. The spatialite node now works when installing qgis master through a freshly downloaded osgeo4w setup executable.
