Install this patch if you've configured to use amavisd-new for using Perl-DBI.



Problem description

The latest amavisd-new update (amavisd-new-20070130-0.5) requires perl-DBI version >=1.43 but but SLES9 provides 1.41 perl-DBI. This results in amavisd-new is not starting after applying this update when amavisd-new is configured to use perl-DBI. The subroutine which profited from the release update of perl DBI will not be used. Therefore the examination of the version is unnecessary.
