Berkeley DB BDB Install on Windows

I’ve been scripting in Ruby (and Rails) for about two years now, but
have never gotten into the internals of the module/gem side. I’ve
created a Ruby script using SQLite3 which works well for small data
sets but has a performance issue when dealing with a large amount of
data. I’m hoping to try the Berkeley DB.

To start, the environment is the following.

Windows XP
Berkeley DB 4.8.24
ruby 1.8.6-27 (http://rubyinstaller.org)
devkit-3.4.5r3-20090411 (http://rubyinstaller.org/addons.html)
bdb-0.6.5

When I execute the extconf.rb script I receive the below output. I’m
assuming it is not able to locate the Berkeley libraries. I have added
the the Berkeley_Install/bin and Berkeley_Install/lib to the PATH with
no luck.

Just wondering if anyone has seen this or might have some ideas for
me?

That will not work.

DevKit has been prepared to work with newer RubyInstaller releases,
not the old One-Click ones. That is because One-Click has been
compiled with VC6 and RubyInstaller with GCC, Ruby needs to use the
same compiler.

Using the correct version of Ruby with the DevKit will allow you use –
with-db-dir option pointing to the root of the compiled BDB libraries
(which seems you didn’t extract or installed).

So, first:

  • Get the proper Ruby and DevKit
  • Get BDB binaries and development dependencies
  • Unpack them in a directory you remember
  • Unpack the bdb extension
  • Proceed with extconf and the proper compilation options.

HTH,

Still working on it. I have installed Ruby 1.9.1 using the ZIP as
opposed to the one-click installer. I also pulled down all the DLL
file and copied them to the RubyHome\bin. I was able to install all
required gems using gem. I then moved on to unpacking the devkit and
moving the devkitHome/bin files to RubyHome/bin and moving the
devkitHome to the RubyHome (not sure if I need to something more
here). Attempted to install the DBD extension. Different errors
produces, but seems like progress.

I’m not sure what it means “You have to install development tools
first.” as I have no idea how it works. I have a funny feeling the
devkit is not plugged in properly. I will continue to research.

Thanks,

Well, no, you will not reach progress because you’re using VC6-build
of Ruby instead of MinGW, please keep reading…

You still are not following.

You’re using ZIp files, or One-Click Installer, which are compiled
with VC6. Unless you have VC6 in your system, nothing will work.

Please, install RubyInstaller package (RC1 is the latest stable one):

http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=167&release_id=41267

After install Development Kit on top of it (use 7-Zip to unpack it)

Then you will be able to compile the extension.

The Zip package at Ruby-lang, as you noticed, is incomplete, there is
a clear note in the download page about it:

“Please note that some of the above binaries will require manual
download and installation of additional components detailed on this
page. Please ensure you’ve followed/performed these steps prior
reporting a bug.”

Please refer to our FAQ page in the wiki for RubyInstaller:

Thanks for your help Luis!

I have now installed the correct Ruby installation and plugged in the
development kit. Ruby is now…

ruby 1.9.1p243 (2009-07-16 revision 24175) [i386-mingw32]

I have also downgraded Berkeley DB to 4.6.21 which is compatible with
bdb-0.6.5.

During the extconf.rb execution it takes a lot longer now (about 10
minutes), as it seems to be searching for certain library files. Even
with different combinations of the --with* parameters I have not been
able to get the install to find the Berkeley DB files. The Berkeley DB
files are as such…

Yes, it seems the file match is not correct.

During the extconf.rb execution it takes a lot longer now (about 10
minutes), as it seems to be searching for certain library files. Even
with different combinations of the --with* parameters I have not been
able to get the install to find the Berkeley DB files. The Berkeley DB
files are as such…

Can you tell us the content of “lib”?

It seems is looking for db-4.7, which should be “libdb-4.7.a” or
“db-4.7.lib”
(and similar for other versions)

I’m not familiarized with the packaging of BDB so cannot say from
here.

Seems it offers too many combinations for BDB.

Please include the pages/URLs where you got all the packages (bdb
extension and bdb binaries) so I can replicate the same environment
here.

All the following was with Ruby 1.8.6, see the bottom of this email
for explanation…

Ok, tried installing BDB 4.6.21 MSI package, also making it available
using --with-db-include and --with-db-lib, no luck

Tried renaming libdb46.lib to libdb46.a (which is the convention
expected by GCC), no luck there neither.

Next try was mattbauer’s bdb, no luck.

This time, renamed to libdb-4.6.a, since this bdb extension is looking
for “db-4.6”…

No luck still…

After peeking in the mkmf.log, found this:

have_library: checking for db_version() in -ldb-4.6…
-------------------- no

"gcc -o conftest -I. -IC:/Users/Luis/Tools/Ruby/ruby-1.8.6-p383-i386-

6: int main() { return 0; }
7: int t() { void ((volatile p)()); p = (void (()()))db_version;
return 0; }
/
end */


Which lead me to think the issue is inside bdb itself…

commented out line 131, since MinGW already defines ssize_t
properly… the output was this:

C:\Users\Luis\Projects\oss\bdb\ext>ruby extconf.rb --with-db-dir=C:/
bdb-4.6.21
checking for db_version() in -ldb-4.7… no
checking for db_version() in -ldb-4.6… yes
Writing bdb_aux._c (defines), this takes a while
don’t know how to handle DB_COMPACT_FLAGS , guessing UINT

wrote 409 defines
creating Makefile


Now, let’s try to make it:

C:\Users\Luis\Projects\oss\bdb\ext>make
gcc -I. -I. -IC:/Users/Luis/Tools/Ruby/ruby-1.8.6-p383-i386-mingw32/
lib/ruby/1.8/i386-mingw32 -I. -IC:/bdb-4.6.21/include -g -O2 -c
bdb.c
bdb.c: In function db_open': bdb.c:241: error: too many arguments to functionraise’

Stall there, since I’m not familiar with the code or what is trying to
achieve.

So: looks like both extensions needs some love to work properly under
GCC and Windows.

I would suggest poke the authors, point them to RubyInstaller Google
Group [1] to get some assistance in the process and use tools like
rake-compiler [2] to compile the extension.

Definitely that will not solve your situation right away but will help
everybody in the future.

Apologizes couldn’t get this working for you.

NOTE about version used: Used Ruby 1.8.6 since most likely, and after
try and error, none of the extensions seems to like Ruby 1.9.1
(mattbauer used a deprecated constant and failed with ‘raise’ issues
described above).

Hi Dave and Luis!

I have exactly the same problem!!! … Is there any solution yet??? …
Because I have to use ruby-wordnet, and there must be a bdb!!!

As I said before, please reach out to the author, I’m not familiarized
with the code or current status of this project and its support under
Windows.
