I recently setup a new Arch Linux computer and when trying to do an svn checkout I get this error:

svn: error while loading shared libraries: libdb-5.3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

What exactly went wrong with this?

I'm using Arch Linux 64bit

Try executing

ll /usr/lib/libdb*

If the library doesn't exist, you have to update the ArchLinux core by running

pacman -Suy

This ended up being the problem. I had done a fresh install just a few days earlier and somehow libdb had already went from like 5.2 to 5.3 – Earlz Jan 20 '12 at 21:09
