Description Enrico Scholz 2002-02-12 15:13:30 EST
Description of Problem:

Using the C++ interface of db4 is impossible since the needed headers are missing:

| $ echo '#include <db_cxx.h>' >test.cc
| $ g++ -I /usr/include/db4 test.cc 
| In file included from test.cc:1:
| /usr/include/db4/db_cxx.h:64:24: cxx_common.h: No such file or directory
| /usr/include/db4/db_cxx.h:65:24: cxx_except.h: No such file or directory
| In file included from test.cc:1:
| /usr/include/db4/db_cxx.h:159: syntax error before `{' token
| ...

While building the package, these two files (cxx_common.h and cxx_except.h) are
installed, but will be omitted because they are not listed in the %files-section.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2002-02-24 12:20:04 EST
Some recent version of db4 has this fixed, but I dunno what
package is current anymore.
Comment 2 Jay Turner 2002-03-19 16:45:18 EST
Is this still an issue with Beta 2?
Comment 3 Enrico Scholz 2002-03-19 17:29:51 EST
Because db4 was abandoned in beta2 and the new/old db[123] packages do not use
these files: no.

But when reviving db4, the problem will reappear...
Comment 4 Enrico Scholz 2002-05-31 14:34:51 EDT
As prophesied, problem revives in rawhide...
Comment 5 Jeff Johnson 2004-11-13 18:01:03 EST
/usr/include/db4/db_cxx.h is in db4-devel-4.3.21-1 and db4-4.2.52-6

/usr/include/db4/{db_cxx.h,cxx_common.h,cxx_except.h} are in db4-4.1.25-8.

That should be more than enough to call this problem WORKSFORME,
2 years later.
