Subject Re: DB_File needs compatible versions

I originally just posted this back to Scott, but after seeing all the flurry of activity regarding
this lately, here's my $0.02 on the issue...

-----Original Message-----
I've had this problem.  The problem is actually in the RPM for perl, which
in it's default make notices this problem and removes db.h from perl.  I've
discovered, however, that you can build perl yourself and simply put db.h
back into perl at the end of the ./configure script (right before making
dependancies by editing the file and adding -ldb to LIBS).

After building the (addmittadly possibly mismatched) libdb, perl lets you rebuild it over
and over if you so wish, and I've yet to run into problems...


Internet is a wonderful mechanism for making a fool of
yourself in front of a very large audience.

Moving the mouse won't get you into trouble...  Clicking it might.
