cannot find -ldb_cxx on RHEL

Hi All,

I have searched the forums about this (http://www.zeroc.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=1410&highlight=db_cxx) but still it's not fixed!

I am positive I have configured everything correctly yet ld complains that db_cxx doesn't exist even though it definitely does. See below:
c++ -shared -Wl,--enable-new-dtags -Wl,-rpath,/usr/local/Ice-3.0.1/lib
-ftemplate-depth-128 -Wall -D_REENTRANT -fPIC -g -L../../lib -o ../../lib/libFreeze.so.3.0.1 -Wl,-h,libFreeze.so.30   CatalogData.o Catalog.o

As you can see, I have followed advice from previous posts on the forum and changed the references to -ldb_cxx in config/Make.rules to -ldb_cxx.4.3 but it still doesn't work. This is frustrating because the file does exist and Ice is correctly configured to point to it!

    Sorry, I fogot to mention I have tried changing name of the library from -ldb_cxx to -ldb_ccx.4 and various other variations in order to point to the correct so file but it still doesn't work!

    Just as a wild guess, perhaps your gcc doesn't like the ordering of the parameters? Try to move the -L/usr/local/BerkelyDB.4.3/lib -ldb_cxx-4.3 to the beginning of the link line.

    It also looks like you have a typo in your BerkeleyDB directory ("-L/usr/local/BerkelyDB.4.3/lib"). "Berkely" should probably be "Berkeley" instead.
