Description Reuben Farrelly 2005-09-22 03:17:00 EDT
perl-BerkeleyDB is fairly unusable right now due to the fact that a newer
version of db4 has been built in rawhide.  The current RPM of perl-BerkeleyDB
was built against this older version 4.3.27, and needs a rebuild for the newer

For example, with amavisd we see this:

[root@tornado linux-2.6]# /etc/init.d/amavisd restart
Stopping amavisd: [FAILED]
Starting amavisd: Problem in Amavis::DB or Amavis::DB::SNMP code: 
BerkeleyDB needs compatible versions of libdb & db.h
        you have db.h version 4.3.27 and libdb version 4.3.28
Compilation failed in require at (eval 37) line 12.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at (eval 37) line 12.
[root@tornado linux-2.6]#

[A rebuild of perl-BerkeleyDB fixed the problem for me locally, but this needs
to be done in the -extras repo]
Comment 1 Steven Pritchard 2005-09-24 15:22:18 EDT
Can someone explain to me why a minor version change is breaking compatibility?

In any case, I've requested a rebuild.
