Description of problem:
I installed Xemacs with yum, it won't run because you left out libdb.so.3.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install from yum (it's missing on the CDROMs)
Actual Results: xemacs
xemacs: error while loading shared libraries: libdb.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
XEmacs was moved to Fedora Extras for FC4.
Which version of xemacs do you have installed?
xemacs-21.4.17-3 from extras runs fine for me.
You must be running a rather old xemacs build anyway, since db
support was disabled from our xemacs package a long while ago.
Not your fault. The problem is that FC4 put /usr/local/bin into the default path
and the /usr/local/bin had a bunch of old versions of Xemacs in it. When I
changed the path it finds the current version of Xemacs which works.
Thanks for the quick followup; setting resolved as NOTABUG because there's
nothing wrong in the XEmacs package in this respect.
