Description Andreas Luik 1999-11-23 16:06:56 UTC
The include file <ndbm.h> (/usr/include/ndbm.h) is missing from
RedHat 6.1.  It was available on RedHat 5.1 in glibc-devel-2.0.7-29.
Its absence makes it more difficult to compile programs which
use NDBM, because the <ndbm.h> include file is kind of a
"standard" one.

Note: ndbm.h header files are available in several other places:

taylor:~(32)> locate ndbm.h
/usr/i386-glibc20-linux/include/ndbm.h
/usr/include/db1/ndbm.h
/usr/include/gdbm/ndbm.h

Probably the easies fix is to add a symbolic link from
/usr/include/ndbm.h to /usr/include/db1/ndbm.h.

Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 2000-01-05 00:22:59 UTC
use
   #include <db1/ndbm.h>

This is because glibc 2.1 switches to db2 as the default DB library and NDBM is
really a db1-type interface.
