FS#27 - man breaks on gdbm sobump

man: error while loading shared libraries: libgdbm.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

either you must link against libgdbm_compat.so.4 or against libgdbm.5

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  

fixed in man-db-, installing that package from testing as temporary is the better
solution than adding a symlink you make forget to delete..

temporary workaround: ln -fs libgdbm_compat.so.4 /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.4

weird: Archlinux has:

/usr/bin/man is owned by man-db
gdbm 1.14.1-1

Archlinux 32 has:

gdbm 1.14.1-1.0

This seems to be pretty much the same version.

it's amazing what packages we managed to break :-/ I scheduled man-db for a rebuild

man-db is rebuilding on my slave. *fingers crossed*
