Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 814079
Move from db4 to db5
Last modified: 2012-04-19 05:10:22 EDT
Because of bug #768846, I'd like to see all Perl packages being linked against the same Berkeley database library version.
Currently latest perl-BDB-1.88-5.fc17 links to db4. Please replace `db4-devel' build-require with `libdb-devel'. According my tests, you will need to upgrade perl-BDB to 1.9 (http://cpansearch.perl.org/src/MLEHMANN/BDB-1.9/Changes).
Thx for the record, please go ahead with the changes update and push to bodhdi.
I will only be able to do this at the end of the day.
I made the changes only in F18 because there is no answer yet whether db5 can handle db4 files properly. The same applies to perl and other packages.
I augmented new perl-BDB version from 1.9 to 1.90 to be higher than older 1.88 because I think remembering epoch number when putting dependencies in other packages is error-prone.
