Description Jean-Luc Fontaine 2001-02-14 13:50:38 UTC
NOTE: this is for fisher powertools.

Does not allow reverse name lookups, a very important new feature of 2.01.
For example:

$ webalizer -D dns.db -N 10
does nothing more.

and after symbolically linking webalizer to:
$ webazolver 
DNS support not present, aborting...

It should be trivial to fix in the spec file.
Other than that Redhat 7.1b seems to work just fine. Thanks!

Regards, Jean-Luc

Fixing the product/component.

Comment 2 Tim Powers 2001-02-14 17:27:08 UTC
It took some digging, but it was sucking in the wrong header for db, it needed
<db1/db.h> instead of <db.h> (which is db3). This is why when configuring wiht
the --with-dns option and then building would fail in the past (it's expecting
db1 to be the default). In any case, it's fixed, and has dns enabled. I have put
the fixed package in http://people.redhat.com/timp/RPMS/webalizer-2.01_06-5.i386.rpm
and the SRPM in http://people.redhat.com/timp/SRPMS/webalizer-2.01_06-5.src.rpm .

These packages should also show up in rawhide the next time it's updated.

I tested it and it works.
Thanks for such a prompt fix! That is what I call efficiency.
Best regards, Jean-Luc.
