Re: gdbm 1.8.0-5 breaks cvs

you are correct & your suggestion fixed the error.

This looks like a cygcheck from the configuration that works (i.e., it
shows gdbm-1.8.0-4 and libgdbm-1.8.0-5. I have an inkling of what's going
on: you've probably reverted to gdbm-1.8.0-4 at some point, and then
"upgraded" back to gdbm-1.8.0-5 (which doesn't contain cyggdbm.dll,
because the files that were in gdbm-1.8.0-4 are now split between 3
packages). So, you ended up missing cyggdbm.dll.

Try uninstalling gdbm-1.8.0-4, and then reinstalling all three of
{gdbm-1.8.0-5, libgdbm-1.8.0-5, libgdbm-devel-1.8.0-5}.  This should make
the necessary dlls available.

If the above suggestion doesn't work, it might be a permission issue.  Do
you try to run cvs from a service when you get this message?
