Subject: DB_File installation fails during 'make': missing db.h
Today, while examining other rt.cpan.org tickets, I had occasion to try to install DB_File as a prerequisite to a number of other libraries, including Spoon and Kwiki. I attempted this using both 'cpan' and 'cpanm'. I experienced the same failures during 'make' with either tool. Here's an excerpt from the cpanm build.log: ##### Searching DB_File on cpanmetadb ... --> Working on DB_File Fetching http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/P/PM/PMQS/DB_File-1.835.tar.gz -> OK Unpacking DB_File-1.835.tar.gz Entering DB_File-1.835 Checking configure dependencies from META.json Checking if you have ExtUtils::MakeMaker 0 ...

DB_File requires a version of berkeley DB installed together with the development (header) files. On Debian based systems this packages is called something like libdb5.3-dev or libdb4.8-dev.

Thanks for that suggestion. sudo apt-get install libdb6.0-dev libdb6.0 After that, I successfully used 'cpanm' to install DB_File. Ticket may be closed.
