Re: bad database error

Got it working.

I'm a little confused as to why apache was linked to an old version of bdb --
none that i've installed (only have 4.0.14) and I was using a 2.0.40 src
distrib of Apache.

I built apache using the (optional in the docs, but it was Required to make it
work) --with-db=db4 to force the correct version to be built -- though this
only worked after checking out from HEAD in cvs, and having everything in my
LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

I think the INSTALL file could be a little clearer that apache AND subversion
MUST be built from a new checkout of each, in order to work currently. I
assumed that the 0.14.2 and 2.0.40 might actually work together, but it seems
not.

Thanks,

Ken.
