SWS 2.0 on RH 6.0 incompatible berkeley DB
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
RH 6.0 ships with Berkeley DB 2.1.1.
SWS 2.0 needs Berkeley DB 1.85 for AuthDBUserFile and
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
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
Jeff, these db problems have been sorted out for 6.1 already, correct
please upgrade to Secure Web Server 3.1 -- you can get it for free. Please
contact sales regarding this -- you will have to return your Secure Web Server
