The previous release contained shared memory symbols, which
hasn't been implemented in the main-stream Cygwin dll yet.
Thanks to Steve O'Brien for catching this. This release has
been tested thoroughly and will resolve the undefined
symbols issue he previously reported. If you were having
trouble compiling an application with db support, please try
again with this new release.
Gerrit Haase and I will be submitting various versions of
the Berkeley DB for inclusion into the cygwin distribution.
We begin with the Berkeley DB2, which is the first major
revision of the original Berkeley DB. The version of db-2
is 2.7.7, which is the last stable version released for the
db-2 line. There are many projects which can use the db-2,
one such project being xemacs. Our intent is to provide the
standard database api's in the same manner as redhat does.
The releases will co-exist with each other, though the last
installed release will be the default. More information on
this will be included in the db-3.1 announcement. For more
information on The Berkeley DB, visit
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin
now" link on the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This
downloads setup.exe to your system. Then, run setup and
answer all of the questions.
Note that we do not allow downloads from sources.redhat.com
(aka cygwin.com) due to bandwidth limitations. This means
that you will need to find a mirror which has this update.
In the US,

is usually pretty good.
In the UK,
is usually up-to-date within 48 hours.
If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this
package then you can either wait for the site to be updated
or find another mirror.
The setup.exe program will figure out what needs to be
updated on your system and will install newer packages
If you have questions or comments, please send them to the
Cygwin mailing list at: email@example.com . I would
appreciate if you would use this mailing list rather than
emailing me directly. This includes ideas and comments
about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.
If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin
mailing list is the appropriate place.
