Description scot 2000-06-13 13:36:18 UTC
I tried compiling the Cyrus IMAPD, and this software expects libdb-3, not 
libdb-3.0.  The db3 RPM should create a link between libdb-3.a -> libdb-
3.0.a and libdb-3.so -> libdb-3.0.so.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-06-21 20:56:43 UTC
The recommended naming scheme is libdb-3.0.*, not libdb-3.

Comment 2 scot 2000-06-23 18:00:40 UTC
$ ls -la /var/tmp/db3-root/usr/lib
lrwxrwxrwx   1 scot     scot           12 Jun 23 12:44 libdb-3.so -> libdb-
3.0.so
lrwxrwxrwx   1 scot     scot           12 Jun 23 12:44 libdb.so -> libdb-3.0.so

The above was from a recently compiled/installed DB3 RPM in to the build root.

I can understand why you don't want libdb.so linked to libdb-3.0.

But just uncommenting libdb-3.so in the db3.spec file would fix this problem.
