Angry I can't install this library


I am trying to install apache on my pc and it keeps listing libdb-3.1.so . I looked all over the place for and finally asked a guy at work and he told me to try db3-devel-3.2.9-4.i386.rpm because it contains libdb.3.1.so . So I try to install that using this command "rpm -ivh db3-devel-3.2.9-4.i386.rpm" and it says that that package is already installed. So then I do "rpm -qa | grep db3*" and it doesn't list anything. So I tried "rpm -ql db3-devel-3.2.9-4.i386.rpm" and that states that "package db3-devel-3.2.9-4.i386.rpm is not installed" I am at my wits end and don't know what else to try.

Try
rpm -e db3-devel
rpm -ihv db3-devel-3.2.9-4.i386.rpm
or try to force it
rpm -ihv --force db3-devel-3.2.9-4.i386.rpm

I just made a quick search on the rpmfind and the library you need isn't in db3-devel package it is in db3 http://rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/redhat...17-7.i386.html
