problems with installing dsniff :( on Mandrake 9.0

hi hi

when we are talking about linux problems, I know that it's a very good idea to put your system info first. So that's it:

-> Mandrake 9.0
-> Kernel - 2.4.

I'm not sure its enough but let's lay the problem.

When I first Tryed to install dsniff and did a ./configure a problem occured. Well I was expecting that it's possible to have a problem. It was:

---------------------------------------------
checking for Berkeley DB with 1.85 compatibility... configure: error: Berkeley DB with 1.85 compatibility not found
---------------------------------------------

after that the first think that came to my head was that I should install Barkley DB :)))) well I searched the net and I found it - db-4.1.25. The next thing I did was to install it of course :). I compiled and istaled it (db-4.1.25).

The worst thing I could imagine was that the same problem occured again when I tried to ./configure DSNIFF

Now I would wand some advice on how to install dsniff.

thank you all U linux brothers!

I think you need to build db with 1.85 compatibily mode enabled.

cd build_unix
../dist/configure --enable-compat185
