Summary0000068: RPM package does not contain dbm.cma
DescriptionFull_Name: David Clarke
Version: 2.99
OS: RedHat Linux
Submission from: cache2.uwn.unsw.edu.au (129.94.6.29)


I un-rpm-ed the file ocaml-2.99-1.rh61.i386.rpm and discovered that
it did not contain the file dbm.cma (and possibly other things).
Simply running
  rpm -q -l -p ocaml-2.99-1.rh61.i386.rpm
(I think) shows that the file is missing
The tarball worked fine.

TagsNo tags attached.

The RedHat 6.1 system where we built the RPM lacked the necessary
includes for the DBM library (more precisely, it didn't have them in
the standard places -- that's a RH 6.1 problem), so the configuration
skipped the building of the DBM library.

We may try to fix this for the next release, but I wish RedHat
installed the ndbm.h include file where it belongs, in /usr/include,
and not in funky places.

RedHat puts <ndbm.h> in really strange places, but configure should now be able
to find it. -Xavier, 2000/03/26
