Updated gdbm packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
Gdbm is a GNU database indexing library, which includes routines which use extensible hashing. Gdbm works in a similar way to standard UNIX dbm routines.
Prior to this update, gdbm-devel had no explicit requirements to gdbm, which could introduce interoperability problems. With this update, the gdbm-devel adds explicit requirements to the gdbm package.
All users of gdbm are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
