DSPAM on Fedora Core 1

Has anyone been able to install DSPAM on FC1? It sounds like a great program, but I can't get it to work. I followed the README step-by-step and got to the test portion of the software, but it fails when getting stats for my mail user (zope).

[rsolomon@power mail]$ sudo dspam_stats zope
Could not init context: Success

I just used the default ./configure, make, make install. This make the database DB4. I also recompiled with debugging enabled (./configure --enable-debug) and did the make & make install, but nothing appeared in the logs. /var/dspam/data has directories for the mail users, but there are no contents.

I also tried doing a ./configure for MySQL, but I got the following messages:

./configure --with-storage-driver=mysql_drv --with-mysql-includes=/usr/include/mysql --with-mysql-libraries=/usr/lib/
checking where to find MySQL headers... /usr/include/mysql
checking mysql.h usability... yes
checking mysql.h presence... yes
checking for mysql.h... yes
checking where to find MySQL libraries... /usr/lib/
checking for library containing inet_ntoa... (cached) none required
checking for library containing socket... (cached) none required
checking for mysql_init in -lmysqlclient... no
configure: error: Required version of libmysqlclient not found

I'm open to using MySQL, DB4 or anything else to get this thing to work. It sounds better than spamassassin. Any suggestions?

dspam on fc1 and rh9 ok


Our 'development' and/or test-machine is a FC1 (now FC2) machine. It works perfect with dspam.
Our production mailserver runs ons Rh9. (wish it was Debian )

My configure line:

./configure --with-storage-driver=mysql_drv --enable-spam-subject --with-mysql-includes=/usr/include/mysql/ --with-mysql-libraries=/usr/lib/mysql/ --enable-virtual-users --enable-domain-scale

Concerning your libmysqlclient, that should have something to do with mysql client lib's, you might do:
apt-cache search "mysql"

That way you can see wich mysql stuff is installed or not... (apt can be found on

Please let us know if you make any progress or not ..

Ps: we're using dspam3 in testing since a few months (2) now, it's working magnificent... (and worth struggling through the problems you encounter at first..)
