I'm using openldap 2.4.15 on FreeBSD 6.4

ldapsearch with the -W switch gives me the expected output but ends with

ldapsearch with the -w switch does not core dump

This was already reported in an ITS, and will be fixed with 2.4.16.


Thanks a lot.

This raises an alarm: maybe I should stick with 2.4.11 for production
as it is recommended on the OpenLDAP web site, which in turn raises
a question addressed to FreeBSD users (sorry if I'm a bit OT).

How can I use ports to build OpenLDAP 2.4.11 (currently the ports tree
contains 2.4.15)? Should I build it manually, loosing the benefits of

Also, OpenLDAP 2.4.15 in the FreeBSD ports tree is built
with BDB 4.6.21 with only the first 3 of the 4 recommended patches.

I'd very much like to have feedback (maybe off list) about those
issues when running a critical OpenLDAP server on FreeBSD.

I would just run 2.4.15 with the patches from CVS for this issue. 2.4.16 will be out fairly soon, and it will be the next stable release. There have been major important fixes for 2.4.11, and going from 2.4.11 to later releases can require a database reload.
