Ubuntu: How to upgrade slapd to 2.4.40?


I just found out, that connecting via the LDAP API like this

sudo ldapsearch -Q -LLL -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -b cn=config dn  

has a bug on Ubuntu 15.04 vivid/openldap-2.4.31. But fortunately, on that bug report, I can find the message, that

This bug was fixed in the package openldap - 2.4.40+dfsg-1ubuntu1

Now how can I upgrade my openLDAP to that specific version? I already did sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade. But my current openLDAP version remains 2.4.31.


Version 2.4.40 is currently only available for the next Ubuntu release Wily and there is no PPA with version 2.4.40.

You can download the source code and apply a patch for Utopic and Vivid.
