I get conflicts in the filesystem by installing the regular db package. I had to patch the PKGBUILD to fix them:

It seems that if you do this, then Python 2.4 (which is what this is needed for) will still find it automatically.

the arch=any is invalid for this pkg, as it contains binaries - arch=any is only for scripts.
please use
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

sorry I didn't realize about that little error U.U' correctly re-uploaded

isn't there something wrong with this pkg?
db4.5 5.3.21
it's supposed to provide db-4.5 and yet it operates on db-5.3 sources

Well, try again. I've embedded patches into the package.

It seems to work.

@kveras SUSE build factory seems to be dead. Let's give them some time to recover.
