Problem on Debian Sarge Perfect Setup
I can't get rid of some errors installing Debian Sarge (following perfect setup guide), everything goes well until I get to the perl installation. Following error is what I'm getting:


cpan> install DB_File
version.c:30:16: db.h: No such file or directory
make: *** [version.o] Error 1
/usr/bin/make -- NOT OK
Running make test
Can't test without successful make
Running make install
make had returned bad status, install seems impossible


Everything else was fine as I said before. Googling could see that this could be related to berkeley db, but cannot find debian package. Also read that cyrus & imap must be compiled with same bd version, that stopped my manual install.

Thanks in advance for your help

On it reads:

apt-get install wget bzip2 rdate fetchmail libdb3++-dev unzip zip ncftp xlispstat libarchive-zip-perl zlib1g-dev libpopt-dev nmap openssl lynx fileutils
I guess you've missed the libdb3++-dev package...

Well it's possible, even more if you consider that all commands were retyped.
Tomorrow at first time I'll check that.

Thank's for answer so quickly

The best thing would be to use PuTTY ( ) on your Windows workstation and then simply copy and paste the commands from the tutorial.

I guess PuTTY could be the best way to follow the tutorial, I tried to use it but since ssh was not installed (discovered at last) couldn't make it work.

Must say I'm a linux novice and this kind of tutorials are very usefull.

Thanks and best regards from Misisiones - Argentina.
