Well, put it this way, it's not a bug with OpenLDAP but it
is a bug with PINE. This seemed like the most appropriate
list to post to though since maybe an OpenLDAP user could
suggest a workaround.
Ok, but we don't provide support for 3rd Party software integration with
OpenLDAP and refer users to the appropriate mailing lists.
Most people would be used to installing Linux applications
just using .rpms and will be flummoxed by dependency
problems, especially if they are home users. The problem is
that PINE needs a library, libldap.so.2, that the more
recent versions of OpenLDAP no longer supplies. If there is
any easy workaround that the OpenLDAP community can suggest
as a workaround, then PINE users would be very grateful.
The work around would be to get upstream to update there lib dependancies.
But to be absolutely clear, yes, it's definitely PINE's bug
Of course! ;-) But please, seek help on their lists, there's nothing more
we can do to help, as it's not a bug with our software.
In answer to your second suggestion, yes, if you know what
you're doing it is quite easily to compile from the PINE
source and omit OpenLDAP - you can put NOLDAP as a suffix
on the relevant build command. That's what I did in the
This doesn't help people who are used to just using .rpms
though and it doesn't help people who actually want to use
OpenLDAP with PINE.
Well, we distribute in source, so we don't provide RPMs. RPMs are supplied
for convience by distros, as you know.
I would have posted this to PINE lists as you suggest, but
as far as I could make out they don't have email lists per
se but only newsgroups. And one of the things I wanted to
use PINE was to post to newsgroups... but I couldn't get
PINE to work...
All things are pointing towards not using PINE then ;-)
I'll post to their newsgroup from my PC at work, but in the
meantime, if anybody on this list has any ideas about
solving this problem from and OpenLDAP perspective, then
I'd be very grateful.
They look pretty active to me:
