Re: slapd giving me startup errors.

I'm trying to start up an ldap server with openldap 2.3.4. Ive got slackware 10.1.0, kernel I found this article [ http://docs.linux.com/article.pl?sid=04/03/01/1318258&tid=29&tid=14&tid=94 ] and have been following it. Only when I go to start up slapd at the end of the article I get an error.

I use the command ./slapd -f /usr/local/openldap/etc/openldap/slapd.conf -u ldap -d9

There's a lot of output, but at the end I get

slapd startup: initiated.
backend_startup_one: starting "cn=config"
backend_startup_one: starting "dc=pvpsc,dc=com"
bdb_db_open: alock package is unstable
backend_startup_one: bi_db_open failed! (-1)
slapd shutdown: initiated
====> bdb_cache_release_all
bdb_db_close: alock_close failed
slapd destroy: freeing system resources.
slapd stopped.

I have tried looking for the "alock package is unstable" line over the internet, but havent found much of anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks


Solved my own problem here. It was a permissions error on the openldap-data dir. it was root:root. Changed it to ldap:users.
