In this case your amount of pain includes learning how to debug code yourself, because nobody on the Project cares to spend any time debugging obsolete code. I suggest you read up on how to use gdb.

Some tips to get started are here

but you'll likely need to dig deeper than a simple backtrace.

Running OpenLDAP 2.2.19 on Darwin kernel v. 8.11.1, and when I issue:

/usr/sbin/slapcat -d 5 -v -l /Users/localadmin/Desktop/bkup.ldif

I get the following output:


# id=00000070
entry_decode: "cn=raidgroup,cn=groups,dc=fileserver,dc=mydomain,dc=private"
<= entry_decode(cn=raidgroup,cn=groups,dc=fileserver,dc=mydomain,dc=private)
# id=00000071
slapcat shutdown: initiated
Segmentation fault


Anyone know how I can track down what's causing this segmentation fault?
