Re: ldif2ldbm doesn't make db files


I have found a workaround for this problem.

The reason seems to be in glibc-2.1. When db_open is called, it expects
to be the "environment" NULL or the cachesize 0. Seems previous releases
didn't do so. (Details can be found in a mail I have sent to openldap-bugs.)

The workaround is setting cachesize to 0 which will let the DB2
implementation choose a reasonable cachesize automatically.

Attached you find

  - a SPECS file
  - two patch files and
  - an openldap.init file

To build OpenLDAP with RH 6.0 (or any other RPM based system), do the

  - Save the SPECS file in /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
  - Save the other files in /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
  - Edit the SPECS file to match your version of the OpenLDAP server.
    For example, use

	%define ldapver 990504


	%define ldapver 1.2.1

  - Run the compiler:

	rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/openldap.spec

    This will build files


  - The former can be installed with

	rpm -i /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/openldap-<version>-2.src.rpm
