Synopsis:          db3 update broke perl's DB_File module.
Advisory ID:       RHBA-2001:043-03
Issue date:        2001-04-03
Updated on:        2001-04-03
Product:           Red Hat Linux
Keywords:          db3 perl
Cross references:  RHEA-2001:015-09

1. Topic:

Updated perl RPM packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 7. These
packages fix problems with the DB_File module introduced by the
RHEA-2001:015-09 enhancement errata.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.0 - alpha, i386

3. Problem description:

The db3 errata RHEA-2001:015-09 causes perl's DB_File module to reject the
db3 libs after import, due to version mismatch. The bug fix is a simple
recompile of perl against the newer version of db3.

4. Solution:

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains
the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

You can verify each package with the following command:
    rpm --checksig  <filename>

tampered with, examine only the md5sum with the following command:
    rpm --checksig --nogpg <filename>
