Bug 219: CLOSED

zsh is looking for libgdbm.so.4

Date: 2019-03-27 - Creator: metalx1000 - Priority standard - 1 message

After installing zsh, with tazpkg, zsh fails to run.
zsh: error while loading shared libraries: libgdbm.so.4: cannot open shared 
object file: No such file or directory

If you set zsh to your default shell, the system becomes unusable.

To fix this issue I had to install package gdbm
sudo tazpkg get-install gdbm

and then link libgdbm.so.4 to libgdbm.so.6

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.6.0.0 /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.4

It seems that the zsh package should be updated to look for libgdbm.so.6 and 
the gdbm packages should be a dependence of the zsh package.

Affected package(s): zsh
