I don't have any additional information for you, but will second a request for info from anyone that's set up LDAP on a slack box. I'd like to set something like that up on my home network in preparation for demonstrations of how to replace Windows in the marketplace.

I know nothing about LDAP, but I wanted to throw in that Dropline installs OpenLDAP. Note that it also installs PAM, which many people seem to have a problem with. There may be some help in their forums, though a quick search of their forums gave me only this , with a note that the PAM section was the interesting part.

Just thought I'd add that, since Dropline has some nice stuff for people looking to move away from Windows in the market place, i.e. OpenLDAP, Evolution. Plus, it uses HAL/DBUS, which is pretty slick when you want to add new devices.

If you don't have much background in LDAP, for starters;

google: pdf ldapv3-jp.pdf
~3meg, but very helpful

Here's some other links;

If you need LDAP and samba, IDEALX has prebuilt scripts.

Slackware needs several components to get LDAP working, but being Linux it sure can be done. You may want to think about PAM. Red Hat has pretty much all you need, and most of the tutorials use RH. My LDAP experience was on RH 7.3, which by the way, is still in use today. To play with it, you can use Mozilla. To see a LDAP schema layout, look at the Mozilla address book.


oh yeah, check out also. Good stuff there.
