unable to configure openldap 2.1.16


Hello there,

I downloaded Openldap 2.1.16 from www.openldap.org, and I would like to install it on a RedHat 8.0 box. Before that, I also installed BDB v4. However, whenever I run ./configure, it always gives me the same error:

checking for db.h... yes
checking for Berkeley DB link (default)... no
checking for Berkeley DB link (-ldb41)... no
checking for Berkeley DB link (-ldb-41)... no
checking for Berkeley DB link (-ldb-4.1)... no
checking for Berkeley DB link (-ldb-4-1)... no
checking for Berkeley DB link (-ldb-4)... no
checking for Berkeley DB link (-ldb4)... no
checking for Berkeley DB link (-ldb)... yes
checking for Berkeley DB thread support... yes
checking Berkeley DB version for BDB backend... no
configure: error: BDB: BerkeleyDB version incompatible


Any idea how I can make it work? Thanks in advance.

Have you tried running 'ldconfig'?

You should also run 'make distclean' before you try to run the ./configure scrpit again.

Slackware 9: BerkeleyDB installs in /usr/local; these three steps have got me to the openldap-2.1.17 compile stage - you'll probably find an unconfigured db.h in /usr/include which screws up configure, the other two steps are belt'n'braces but don't make configure work by themselves (thanks to all ng info from various):

1/ Copy /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.1/include/db.h to /usr/include/db.h

2/ In /etc/ld.so.conf, add the line: /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.1/lib and run ldconfig.

3/ Start configure with (all one line):

env CPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.1/include; export CPFLAGS; LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.1/lib; export LDFLAGS; ./configure

good luck
GoneGaryT

later - yeah, that worked

Any reason why you arent using the RPMs? If you want to build it from source, grab the source rpm and edit the spec file.

Ah, my first Linux was Slackware and came on 26 floppy disks - way before RPMs were thought of... I just never got the RPM habit, I suppose, so I still d/l source from the origin and try to compile it. Are RPMs any good, then?

I started on slackware. I dont want to get into a distribution discussion as it usually gets bloody...but its hard not to here....

I like RPMs. They make life a little easier for me. When people say they want the flexibility of compiling their own binaries, i just say, modify the spec file and compile. Using RPMs will help keep all your applications in the same directories, like logs, configuration, binaries, libraries, etc....

This doesnt answer your question as to why it doesnt work but may solve your problem in another way.
