problems with postfix install


hello!

i had postfix installed on my slackware 10.0 system and running fine ... but then i wanted to run my mailbox-es trou mysql, so i delete the current intallation and install postfix one more time ..

and ... here comes the problem

i`ve used the main.cf and all other config files from the "working postfix" that was earlier installed on my system (so that can`t be the problem), and after # postfix start ... it looked fine, but i can`t get emails and the error in /var/log/maillog says:

fatal: incorrect version of Berkeley DB: compiled against 4.2.52, run-time linked against 3.3.11

i don`t relly know what Berkeley DB is, couse i relly haven`t used it before, so i came to this forum (you are the experts), so i would/could solve this problem finnaly

p.s. sorry on my bed english ... but i`m solving this problem for about 5hours, so i am relly sleepy right about now

postalias: relocation error: postalias: undefined symbol: db_version_4002
