Hey Dieter,

Thank you very much for your email.

It turns out that in RedHat the overlays are automatically installed, and so should not be loaded again with olcModuleLoad.

Thanks very much for your advice!  On to the next problem:
I can't understand what in the world could be causing the following error:
>>> dnPrettyNormal: <cn=config>
<<< dnPrettyNormal: <cn=config>, <cn=config>
<= str2entry: str2ad(changetype): attribute type undefined
slapadd: could not parse entry (line=48)

Thanks again, and best regards

Check wether the modul has been built and is in the defined directory,
if not, check wether syncprov has been built in slapd. slapd -VVV will
show you all builtin modules.
