Dear lists,

Anybody successfully running cyrus-imapd in FC2/3+Xen/UML? When i tried
to run cyrus-imapd in a virtual FC3 (Xen or UML) i got lot's of

  DBERROR db4: Berkeley DB library configured to support only
               DB_PRIVATE environments
  DBERROR: dbenv->open '/var/lib/imap/db' failed: Invalid argument
  DBERROR: init() on berkeley

It turned out to be a FC specific db4 problem with non-NPTL-aware


Unfortunatly, RedHat closed this bug as WONTFIX, but it's still present
with FC3 on ARCH={xen,um}. /lib/tls and /usr/lib/tls moved away, the
LD_ASSUME_KERNEL workaround does not help, too.

So i followed the way of Radu Greab and rebuilt db4 using his patches
and specfile


It was tricky, but worked. As this is an ugly workaround (eg it bombs
with apt/yum updating) i look for a better solution.
