Description Andreas Steinmetz 2016-01-14 23:03:54 UTC
slapd has a built in check against the lmdb version is is loading compared to the lmdb version it was built against. In case of a mismatch slapd refuses to start.
Thus openldap needs a build time dependency causing an automatic rebuild whenever lmdb is up-/downgraded.
I was stuck more than once by an "emerge -uND world" causing a lmdb upgrade but not an openldap rebuild.

Reproducible: Always

Unfortunately, portage does not have an automatic rebuild function on a dependency version change.  It is able to do so on subslot changes, but dev-db/lmdb does not use subslots.

Passing to maintainers for further reference.

eras, mind adding subslots to lmdb?
Comment 3 Eray Aslan gentoo-dev 2016-02-12 08:26:56 UTC
Subslots added to dev-db/lmdb
