RE: BDB 4.3 instability

Hi Buchan,

I built the OpenLDAP server myself, and it's dynamically linked to the
shared library libdb-4.3.so provided by db4-4.3.29-9.fc6.  My platform
team is actually trying to get our Linux vendor to upgrade the library
and they are asking for the details.  I guess if that fails I can try a
static build with the upgraded library, but we are in a space
constrained environment and try as much as possible to use dynamic

But, does the OpenLDAP package on that "platform" (would you not prefer
to provide a version instead?) actually link to the system BDB 4.3 ?

$ rpm -q openldap-servers

$ rpm -qR openldap-servers|grep db-4

$ rpm -q --whatprovides libslapd_db-4.2.so

So, it's linked to an internal copy of 4.2. BDB version may not be your
biggest problem.
