configure says that BerkleyDB (sic) is not installed

When I set {Cache}{MetaCacheManager} = Foswiki::Cache::BDB I notice bin/configure gives a notification "BerkleyDB: Not installed"

Should I be worried? I have noticed some odd refresh behaviour on some of my pages which could be explained by meta-data lookup issues but perhaps it is completely unrelated. Is it just a typo for what bin/configure is looking for - or could there be deeper issues?

Just to clarify I have installed BerkeleyDB but bin/configure is right I haven't installed BerkleyDB since I don't know of any CPAN package like that...

It sounds like a typo on the dependency (Berkley instead of Berkeley)

lib/Foswiki/Configure/Checkers/ and lib/Foswiki/Configure/Checkers/ both refer to Berkley.

Try correcting the typos in the source, and if that eliminates the error, please raise a task (Urgent status)

Hi Crawford,

I can concur that I found the typo in the same locations:
wiki:/srv/www/htdocs/wiki # find . -name *.pm -exec grep -l Berkley '{}' \;

I corrected line 15 in and lines 15 & 16 in I don't get the error anymore and I see no issues at this stage.

As requested I have raised an urgent task which is now documented as Item11041.
