Description adi 1999-08-14 22:06:29 UTC
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
or incorrect?

Comment 2 Preston Brown 2000-01-13 15:36:59 UTC
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
2.0 CDs.
