Hi Fida,

If you want to use db4.6 on Ubuntu, you will have to compile OpenLDAP
from source.

This is probably a good idea, because you can use a more recent version
of OpenLDAP, that has corrected a lot of bugs, particularly in
synchronization. I recommend you use 2.4.16 which should come out in a
few days.

However, problems with synchronization are very unlikely to be related
to BerkeleyDB.

All the best,
