berkeley db installation error message on Suse 10
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,
