Linux Kernel 2.0.30
gnu compiler 2.7
Apache 1.2.4
I'm using dbmmanage for authentification. With apache 1.2.bx all works fine. Now compiling
apache 1.2.4 it doesn't. I get an error message: lib ldbm not found. First I tried to add
-lgdbm ,that's the lib I found on my system, to the Configure file in section Extra Lib. That
didn't work. The result was the same error. Then I add LIBS = -ldgbm to the Makefile. The
compilation worked fine. Then I compiled dbmmanage from the support directory. All seemed
to be o.k. Then I ran the dbmmage program. A file users was built. I thougt that there should
be two files, users.dir and users.pac. I informed myself and read, that gdbm builts only one
file, not two. That seems to be alright. Then I ran netscape gold. Authentification doesn't
work. Why this ? In error log there were two messages:
1. Users file can't be opened.
2. User not found.
So I took my old files made with apache 1.2.bx users.dir and users.pac with the same configuration
in hosts.conf, access.conf and srm.conf. Now  all works. Authentification is fine.
How can  I built a users.pac and users.dir with Apache 1.2.4 dbmmanage? Why is there only
one file users, and not two? Is it my perl 5.004 that causes this error? Do I have to compile
perl 5.004 with  lib gdbm? Is this the problem? It's compiled with Anydbm-Modul. I can't find
lgdbm only Anydbm. I tried many things finding the error. So I now ask you, perhaps someone
can help me. 
Many thanks
Getzkow Bettina
