RE: Installation problem with Berkeley DB

Correct. That is why, as I mentioned in the first mail, I installed Berkeley DB 4.5. I did not uninstall version 4.3 since I don't know what else in the system is using it and I don't want to break anything.

The problem is that even though I installed version 4.5 OpenLDAP configure script still wants to use version 4.3 even after I tell him to look for libraries in the Berkeley 4.5 folder (with --includedir=/folder/) ... what I really need to know is how I can force him to ignore /usr/lib for Berkeley and use /usr/local/bdb4.5 instead.

The workaround is, don't use BDB 4.3.  It's not supported with OpenLDAP
because BDB 4.3 showed itself to be unreliable.
