Hello all,

I am using qmail with Maildir directories
I need to install Courier IMAP to support web based email,
however when attempting to configure I am getting the classic:

"configure: error: Cannot find either the gdbm or the db library."

I am trying to install courier-imap-3.0.3.tar.gz on SuSE 9.0 Professional (2.4.20-64GB-SMP)

I did an "rpm -qa | grep gdbm" and the results were as follows:

I then issued a "rpm -ql gdbm-1.8.3-33" and the results were:

I also tried setting CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/lib" and LDFLAGS="-L/usr/lib"
but the same error arises.

I also checked with "ldconfig -p | grep gdbm" and got: (libc6) => /usr/lib/ (libc6) => /usr/lib/ (libc6) => /usr/lib/

The SuSE 9 RPM for courier I have is: courier-imap-2.1.1-29.i586.rpm

but this needs: is needed by courier-imap-2.1.1-29 is needed by courier-imap-2.1.1-29

when I attempt "rpm -ivh courier-imap-2.1.1-29.i586.rpm"

I then tried to freshen openssl with "rpm -F openssl-0.9.7b-68.i586.rpm" but received a long list of " is needed by ...." messages

How do I install courier IMAP under SuSE 9?

I guess the real issue is getting the config to see the existing gdbm libraries. But isn't this taken care of by ldconfig?

Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome

kind regards
