Importance of running the latest'n'greatest version
I'm running OpenLDAP on SLES 9 (SuSE Linux Enterprise Server) and the version
supplied with it is not the "latest'n'greatest"
ldapsjef:~ # rpm -q openldap2
And in the changelog for the rpm the newest entry is dated Nov 10 2004, where
- bdb-2.2.18-backport.dif: Backport of the back-bdb from OpenLDAP 2.2.18,
should fix some deadlocks and crashes (Bugzilla #42570)
So what is the common opinion here? Should one stick to the versions supplied
by the distributor (in this case SuSE), or should one download the
"latest'n'greatest" from openldap.org and compile it yourself?
