Description Jindrich Novy 2008-09-24 14:31:12 EDT
Spec URL: http://people.redhat.com/jnovy/files/compat-db/compat-db43.spec
SRPM URL: http://people.redhat.com/jnovy/files/compat-db/compat-db43-4.3.29-0.1.fc10.src.rpm
The Berkeley Database (Berkeley DB) is a programmatic toolkit that provides
embedded database support for both traditional and client/server applications.
This package contains Berkeley DB version library 4.3.29 for
applications which need it for backward compatibility.

This bug is related to #459710. The split of compat-db is planned to reduce size of total packages pulled in as dependencies to fit liveCD. Currently compat-db contains three versions of BDB which is wasteful.

Any chance we could remove some of them entirely? Are we sure we need them all?
Comment 2 Jindrich Novy 2008-09-24 14:58:08 EDT
[jnovy@dhcp-lab-186 ~]$ repoquery --whatrequires libdb-4.3.so

cyrus-sasl-lib still needs it. I'm not sure whether cyrus-sasl still needs this particular BDB version. As soon as it is upgraded to anything more recent we can safely drop 4.3.29.
Comment 3 Jindrich Novy 2008-09-26 08:00:47 EDT
cyrus-sasl is now upgraded to use newer db4 so let's nuke BDB 4.3 :)
