Last night I configured a new test sistem based on slackware 12.2 and
lastest kernel 2.6.29

I will be installing both openldap and samba4 from cvs and I will test on

I intend to compile openldap with :

./configure CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.7/include/"
LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.7/lib/" --enable-debug --enable-dynamic
--enable-slapd --enable-modules --enable-slapi --enable-bdb --enable-hdb
--enable-ldap --enable-overlays --enable-monitor --enable-accesslog
--enable-deref --enable-memberof --enable-refint --enable-translucent

Is this ok or i will need more?
