I upgrade my server Os (from feisty to hardy) to install the last

I want to use also the db4.6 utils with this version to do a better
tuning of DB_CONFIG.
The problem is that this version is packaged with libdb4.2 dependency.
With this version of Berkley DB, I've observed an important amount of
CPU consumed when synchronisation between master and slaves is
executed. This led sometimes in loss of synchronisation state.
So, I have 2 questions:
is it any know bug in libdb4.2 that can lead to this beahaviour ?
is it better ton install openldap from package Source so that i can
configure it with higher version of libdb ?
If you want to use db4.6 on Ubuntu, you will have to compile OpenLDAP
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
However, problems with synchronization are very unlikely to be related
All the best,
