IceJ-1.5.0: test of IcePack/simple fails

(RedHat 9.0, Java 1.4.2_03, db-4.2.52)

I'm getting a failed test from 'python allTests.py':

*** running tests in ./test/IcePack/simple
starting icepack registry... failed!
test in ./test/IcePack/simple failed with exit status 256

I've got ICE_HOME exported as /opt/Ice-1.5.0, which is where C++ Ice is

I also changed the port from '12345' to '54321' on the off chance I have
something else running on '12345', but that didn't help.

    Did you try the IcePack demo to see if IcePack works fine with the demos? We don't have this problem on a similar platform.

    If trying the demo doesn't give you more clues, I'm attaching an IcePackAdmin.py file to this post, could you replace the one from your Ice distribution in the Ice-1.5.0/config directory with this one and run the test again? This should print the reason why the registry is failing to start.

    Thanks - that helped me solve the problem. I had upgraded from db4.1.25 to db4.2.52 while
    building IceJ, but Ice (previously built) was still looking for the db4.1.25 libraries. Rebuilding
    Ice with the new db4 version has fixed the problem.

    Sorry to have troubled you!
