Description Joydev Lahiri 2004-12-24 11:37:40 UTC
Description of problem:

This applies to RHEL3 AS/ES/WS Update 4

Database coonectivity causes problems because of 

missing /usr/lib/libidb.so.3

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
compat-db-4.0.14-5.1 rpm

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.just do rpm -Va|tee rpmva and examine the rpmva
Actual results:

missing /usr/lib/libidb.so.3

Expected results:
libidb.so.3 should not go missing

Additional info:
Downgrading compat-db-4.0.14-5.1 rpm to compat-db-4.0.14-5 does not
work-- rather that makes the system unstable.

This problem is not applicable to RHEL3 AS/ES/WS Update 3

Comment 2 Joydev Lahiri 2004-12-25 15:02:44 UTC
A typo has occurred: it's not libidb but
missing /usr/lib/libdb.so.3
Just do
rpm -V compat-db

The rpm version is
as supplied with RHEL3 AS/ES/WS Update 4 (kernel 2.4.21-27.EL)

Comment 3 Joydev Lahiri 2004-12-27 06:05:10 UTC
Am having problems installing third party applications due to the 
missing shared library libdb.so.3. A quick resolution would be 
appreciated. You may send me a patch.

Comment 4 Joydev Lahiri 2004-12-28 04:16:14 UTC
I guess /usr/lib/libdb.so.3 is a symlink which for some reason compat-
db rpm is unable to create. Would appreciate if you can tell me to 
what it is symlinked to. Then the following might work:

#root> ln -s /usr/lib/libdb.so.3 /you/tell/me
#root> /sbin/ldconfig

Comment 5 Arjan van de Ven 2004-12-30 11:13:47 UTC
it should be symlinked to /lib/libdb2.so.3
