Samba installation conflicts and what *is* LDAP?


I tried to update Samba to-day. This happened:

[root@localhost rpmdownload]# urpmi samba --auto-select
unable to take medium "Updates for Mandrake Linux 8.2 (ftp1u)" into account as no list file [/var/lib/urpmi/list.Updates for Mandrake Linux 8.2 (ftp1u)] exists
To satisfy dependencies, the following packages are going to be installed (34 MB):
samba-server-ldap-2.2.5-2mdk.i586 samba-swat-2.2.5-2mdk.i586 samba-doc-2.2.5-2mdk.i586 samba-client-2.2.5-2mdk.i586 samba-server-2.2.5-2mdk.i586 samba-common-2.2.5-2mdk.i586 samba-winbind-2.2.5-2mdk.i586 samba-common-ldap-2.2.5-2mdk.i586
Is it OK? (Y/n) Y

Try installation without checking dependencies? (y/N)

What do I do about it? And just what *is* LDAP?

I did. I can't remember exactly what it said, but it said asked me if I wanted to "force" it, which seemed a bit dangerous to me, so I said "no" the second time.

"The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is a protocol for accessing online directory services. It runs directly over TCP, and can be used to access a standalone LDAP directory service or to access a directory service that is back-ended by X.500. For a good overview of LDAP-based directory service, read this document"

It used mainly to manage a huge number of accounts (mail, domains, ftp) at, for example, isp's. It works together, as a user database, with most server apps or any app which has different users and accounts (samba for ex.).

Mux.

it will replace samba with samba with ldap support

if you don't like to force it then uninstall samba first then install samba-ldap

It will replace Samba with Samba-LDAP? I don't see how this:

samba-server-ldap conflicts with samba-server-2.2.5-2mdk
samba-server conflicts with samba-server-ldap-2.2.5-2mdk
samba-common-ldap conflicts with samba-common-2.2.5-2mdk
samba-common conflicts with samba-common-ldap-2.2.5-2mdk

means that. It seems to be saying that the LDAP version conflicts with the non-LDAP version, and the non-LDAP version conflicts with the LDAP version. How do I select just one of the versions to install using urpmi?

Oh I see,

so the packages you are installing interfere with each other?

try to download and install them manually

I tried that, but there were circular dependency issues, as a result of which I was advised by someone in a different forum to use urpmi.

I tried that last time, and the system failed so badly that I had to reinstall Linux.
