I have a number of ports installed on my 7.2Release box. When I issue
pkg_info I see that I have both db41-4.1.25_4 and db46-126.96.36.199 installed.
Is there an easy way to see which program is linked to which db? Is this
some sort of redundant listing and I really only have db4.6 installed or
can you have both side by side? My real concern is about which db backend
my cyrus-imap-23 is linked against.
All the db* ports install files with the version number embedded in them, so
you can have multiple versions installed without conflicts. "ldd
/path/to/exe" will tell you which library a given binary is linked with, and
you can run "pkg_info -R 'db4*'" to determine which ports depend on which
versions of db.
Thanks Dan and Bill.
Dan, ldd and pkg_info -R did the trick.
I really appreciate it.
