Fedora 17 and the brother printer

Posted 07-13-2012 at 07:41 PM by subvertigo
Updated 08-16-2012 at 08:39 AM by subvertigo

The Brother printer driver for my printer runs into SELinux problems post-install. Fortunately, the selinux troubleshooter made this a trivial fix:

Authentication to OpenLDAP

Posted 07-13-2012 at 12:44 PM by kbscores

We finally got authentication on Solaris 10 client to work with Linux OpenLDAP Client. It is a little strange because for authentication to work the Solaris machine requires a user account to exist on that box. I believe the reason it is required is because we remove the native ldap, which in turn removes cache manager. The service nscd utilizes cache manager when ldap is in place. Since we no longer have cache manager nscd becomes worthless to authentication process. As one guide so eloquently...
