Description ksitze 1999-08-26 07:42:55 UTC
The /usr/lib/ library has an incorrect soname
which causes the library to be incorrectly
linked into an application.  This interferes with
porting applications using db-1.85 databases (which are
incompatable with the db-2 code in

Suggested fix is to pass -h to the linker
in building the library.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-27 14:24:59 UTC
The library for db1 is, while the library for db2 is Confusing ain't it :-(
