Personally, when I hand build my Cyrus Servers, I end up putting DB3 on

Because quite frankly i've found more responsiveness with DB3, and less
'insane' errors that make no clear sense to me.

That, and you can patch db3, and not worry about someone releasing a
new version that breaks your patch anymore.

It's great running old software, and making it work the way it should
be(tm) to begin with.

"What does one want when one is engaged in the sexual act?
That everything around you give you its utter attention
Think only of you, care only for you...
Every man wants to be a tyrant when he fornicates"
