How does moving from an older version of BerkleyDB to a newer version

will the newer library not affect ldbm?  I don't see any berkley

Why would you use LDBM if you are moving to a newer version of OpenLDAP? There are many many wonderful reasons to move to a more sane and stable backend like BDB (the suggested backend for OpenLDAP 2.1 or greater).

than ever in the present religio-political climate. They often focus on
fantasy and sf books, which foster that deadly enemy to bigotry and blind
faith, the imagination." -- Ursula K. Le Guin
