Hmm I assume dv4-utils is actually db4-utils, which I have installed.
Should I download the CVS source tree and install the dbrecover init
script? It wasn't on the Fedora Core 1 ISO install CD.

Subject: Authentication failures
For some random odd reason, which I have yet to find, PWDB stopped
working. I rebooted the server, still had the problem, all services
using PAM (and hence the PWDB files) failed authentication. I deleted
the last site added, with about 10 users (all with dots in their
usernames like first.lastname) and it started working immediately.
I then restored this site using CMU and authentication continued to
Very bizarre. I wrote a btree perl script to dump the .db files in
/var/db and all the files dumped out ok, no errors so it doesn't appear
to have been corruption.
I noticed some threads about dbrecover and dv4-utils - are they
available from the website?
I don't have dbrevover and running db_recover just gives an error about
unable to start in the environment.
