berkeley db installation error message on Suse 10


Hi all,

I'm a noob trying to install Berkeley DB 4.4.16 on SuSE 10.0 OSS. Following the instructions I type: dist/configure, but I get the error message:

configure: error: Berkeley DB should not be built in the top-level or dist directories.

I only want to install this so I can install the KDE binary newsreader.


Any help would be much appreciated,

Gilbert

so you've untarred the tarball and did a cd into the extracted directory. make a dummy directory in the extracted directory and cd there.

ex.
tar -xzvf db-4.4.16.tar.gz
cd db-4.4.16
mkdir dummy
cd dummy
../configure
make
su
<enter root password>
make install

Apologies for the late thanks MegaSpaz...

...I've just come back from an RPM dependencies trip.
