5.46. db4

An updated db4 package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The Berkeley Database (Berkeley DB) is a programmatic toolkit that provides embedded database support for both traditional and client/server applications. The Berkeley DB includes B+tree, Extended Linear Hashing, Fixed and Variable-length record access methods, transactions, locking, logging, shared memory caching, and database recovery. The Berkeley DB supports C, C++, Java, and Perl APIs. It is used by many applications, including Python and Perl, so this should be installed on all systems.

Bug Fix

BZ#784662
The db4 spec file incorrectly stated that the "License" is simply "BSD", whereas it is in fact licensed under both the BSD and Sleepycat licenses, the latter of which differs from the Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD) license by including a redistribution clause. This update corrects the spec file so it correctly states that the db4 software is provided under the "Sleepycat and BSD" license.
Users of db4 are advised to upgrade to this updated package which fixes this bug.

Bug Fix

BZ#1012586
Due to an incorrect order of the mutex initialization calls, the rpm utility became unresponsive under certain circumstances, until it was terminated. With this update, the order of the mutex initialization calls has been revised. As a result, the rpm utility no longer becomes unresponsive.
