ldap Authentication On Novell


I am working work-study at the college i go to. I have been given the task to create a Linux computer for the engineering department. I have been trying to get a Linux box (with fedora core 2 installed) to authenticate to our Novell server for login and file storage purposes. I followed the steps dictated qqq.linuxgazette.com/issue93/pesin (just change the "qqq" to "www" and add ".html" at the end)(it would not let me post the URL any other way sorry) and I have gotten it to work. I can login and I will be authenticated by the ldap server, but only when I login using command line. When I try to login using the GUI login it will not work. If I type in a correct user and password it automatically asks again for user name. But when I enter a valid user and a invalid password it will then prompt me to enter the "LDAP Password" in which case I enter the proper password and still it acts as if it is a incorrect username and password. Why is the command line working but the GUI not?

any help would be appreciated.

thanks

Nevermind I was able to get it to work with some help. I had to change my login from gdm or kdm to xdm

Also it is a possible indication that pam is not creating your home directory properly.
