Re: bdb checkpoints

Hash: SHA1

Dear Quanah and list users,

Thank you for this info.
As Satoh Fumiyasu points out, it's not BDB 4.3.29 but BDB 4.4.20 on
CentOS/RHEL 5.3.
But indeed as you suggest, if we need a real solution it would be better
to either get support from RedHat or build OpenLDAP ourselves.

Best regards,
