Shalom Pete,

How about some context? What are you trying to do? What type of system? What OS and patch situation?

I left my crystal ball at work on Wednesday.

Re: Berkeley Db 4.5.20 on HPUX 11.11

I am trying to install Berkeley DB so I can use for Cyrus IMAP server.

Box is Rp3440-4 running HPU-UX 11.11.
The DB installer is downloaded from Oracle as a source tarball.

expanded in /tmp/db-4.5.20

I tried the Berkeley DB for the iexplore CD_ROM but this is just run time libraries so trying to install the lot.

see the following for Berkeley install instructions
http://pybsddb.sourceforge.net/ref/build_unix/intro.html
