    That means you are missing libdb (http://sourceforge.net/projects/libdb/).

    You can compile it from source or use checkinstall to make a slackware package (not sure how to use it cause I don't need to).

    Code:
    root@zeus:/var/log/packages# grep libdb-4 *
    aaa_elflibs-10.2.0-i486-3:lib/libdb-4.2.so
    root@zeus:/var/log/packages#
    have you got the aaa_elflibs package installed?

    Thumbs up Got it Working

    I got the same error messagem after upgranding apache 1.3.33 to apache 1.3.37:

    "error while loading shared libraries: libdb-4.4.so"

    So I got it fixed by instaling the package:

    db44-4.4.20-i486-1

    Then I got another problem:

    "error while loading shared libraries: libmm.so"

    I solved the problem by instaling the following package:

    mm-1.4.2-i486-1

    and upgrading the package

    aaa_elflibs-10.2.0-i486-3 to aaa_elflibs-11.0.0-i486-8

    Then, the last problem:

    "error while loading shared libraries: libldap.so"

    Solved by installing this package:

    openldap-client-2.3.27-i486-1


    I Hope this may help!

    As Slackware doesnt have anyway to resolve dependencies it just install the package. You can either find a TGZ at linuxpackages.net or as I do steal the lib from a debian package
