Re: [gnome-db] compiling gnome - db-1.85 stuff

This is what I would call "DLL Hell" on the Windows platform.  I don't know
what you would call it on Linux or Unix though. :-(

One thing, slackware db you are talking about isn't the same thing as
gnome-db nor libgda.  I could be wrong though.  Gnome-db and libgda are not
a DBMS, but a generic and powerful way to access data including data from
databases, XML, etc...  However, I must admit that libgda does come with a
"default provider" which is a provider to the SQL Lite database that is
included with libgda -- but that is just for testing configurations.

Are you talking about dbm?
