It should work, just get libdb4.2 and db4.2-util. Anyway the script is for squeeze->wheezy and it will work there. Unfortunately it's too late to fix the squeeze. > Some other issues, in chronological order: > > 1.

Anyway normally it would be executed from postinst, so it's not a high priority stuff... but I'll fix that if I find the time (and of course patches are welcome).
