Description adi 1999-08-14 22:06:29 UTC
RH 6.0 ships with Berkeley DB 2.1.1. SWS 2.0 needs Berkeley DB 1.85 for AuthDBUserFile and AuthDBGroupFile. I could not get SWS 2.0 to read my db files no matter which interface I used (/usr/include/db1/db.h, /usr/include/db_185.h, etc) The only solution was to compile and install the original Berkeley DB 1.85 distribution. However, that was easier said than done, since I believe there was an incompatibility in egcs with the 1.85 source. I'm not sure exactly what package caused the conflict, but I patched it. See the patch for details. Everything works now with my new SRPM, see the URL above. Once you install it, you need to rebuild the perl DB_File module (or whatever you're using to maintain AuthDB*Files) with the new /usr/lib/libdb-1.85.so and /usr/include/db-1.85/db.h.

Jeff, these db problems have been sorted out for 6.1 already, correct or incorrect?
