I am installing an old piece of software on my Ubuntu VM instance that the company I work for supports (it's an old version of ClearCase). I seem to need libdb.so.3 but it's not availabe in my version of Ubuntu (8.04). After doing some googling it pointed me to the direction of the CompatDB, which apparently has the libdb.so.3 file I need in the package. I found the following web site: http://compatdb.majorgeeks.com/ which tells you how to get the compatdb package for Ubuntu by editing the /etc/sources.list and adding a mirror. However, this doesn't seem to work for me as I get the following error. Anyone have any suggestions as to either get the compatdb or libdb.so.3 on my file system so I can install the software I need to install? Thanks!
$ sudo apt-get install compatdb.org-linux

CompatDB.org is available over apt-get. Here is the apt repository for /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://MIRROR/apt/ ./
You need to replace MIRROR with the actual mirror. For example: deb http://compatdb.majorgeeks.com/apt/ ./
The following packages are available over apt:
The compatibility data will be installed in the /usr/share/compatdb.org-<database> directory.
