Problem on Debian Sarge Perfect Setup

Discussion in 'HOWTO-Related Questions' started by daniel_rodriguez, Jan 12, 2006.

  1. I can't get rid of some errors installing Debian Sarge (following perfect setup guide), everything goes well until I get to the perl installation. Following error is what I'm getting:

    cpan> install DB_File
    version.c:30:16: db.h: No such file or directory
    make: *** [version.o] Error 1
    /usr/bin/make -- NOT OK
    Running make test
    Can't test without successful make
    Running make install
    make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
    Everything else was fine as I said before. Googling could see that this could be related to berkeley db, but cannot find debian package. Also read that cyrus & imap must be compiled with same bd version, that stopped my manual install.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    On it reads:
    apt-get install wget bzip2 rdate fetchmail [B][COLOR="Red"]libdb3++-dev[/COLOR][/B] unzip zip ncftp xlispstat libarchive-zip-perl zlib1g-dev libpopt-dev nmap openssl lynx fileutils
    I guess you've missed the libdb3++-dev package...
  3. Well it's possible, even more if you consider that all commands were retyped.
    Tomorrow at first time I'll check that.

    Thank's for answer so quickly

  5. I guess PuTTY could be the best way to follow the tutorial, I tried to use it but since ssh was not installed (discovered at last) couldn't make it work.

    Must say I'm a linux novice and this kind of tutorials are very usefull.

    Thanks and best regards from Misisiones - Argentina.
