Description Rambaldi 2013-01-02 14:37:23 UTC
The mdb backend was introduced in openldap 2.4.27. 
Please add a use flag to be able to use the mdb backend.

Reproducible: Always

Created attachment 364404 [details]

openldap-2.4.35-r1.ebuild with an mdb use flag to pass --enable-mdb or --disable-mdb to ./configure.

However, please note the following from "man 5 slapd-mdb":

       This is an early release; the database file format or other characteristics may change incompatibly in future releases.

Hence it might instead be a better idea to enable mdb only with USE="experimental" instead.
Comment 2 Paul B. Henson 2014-01-09 00:28:57 UTC
Hmm, it's enabled by default in the configure script, unless you explicitly disable it. So unless you want a flag to be able to *disable* it, what you've got should be working for you... I'm running openldap with the current ebuild using mdb.

Btw, upstream considers mdb stable enough for production use in current openldap versions.
