4.87. libtdb

Updated libtdb packages that fix multiple bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The libtdb packages provide a library that implements the Trivial Database (TDB). TDB is based on the GNU dbm (GDBM) library of database functions but uses internal locking to allow multiple simultaneous writers.


The libtdb packages have been upgraded to upstream version 1.2.10, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#837865)

Bug Fix

Prior to this update, several names and file paths of binaries and manual pages in the tdb-tools package were in conflict with binaries and manual pages that are shipped in the samba package. With this update, these files have been renamed to avoid conflicts.
All users of libtdb are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
