Description Boris Goldowsky 2005-10-23 06:18:43 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050909 Fedora/1.0.6-1.2.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
Program crashes when attempting to connect to a local LDAP directory.  But it also crashes when I just run directory_administrator --help so perhaps that's the first bug to report.



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
diradmin-1.7.1-1.fc4

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.directory_administrator --help


Actual Results:  Usage: directory_administrator [OPTION...]

GNOME options
  --disable-sound             Disable sound server usage
  --enable-sound              Enable sound server usage

Additional info:

Comment 1 Matthias Saou 2005-10-27 17:02:12 UTC
These seem like two unrelated issues, and I can at least reproduce the --help
crash. I'll report the problem on the diradmin mailing-list and see what gives.

Comment 2 Boris Goldowsky 2006-05-16 00:50:25 UTC
Still having both problems in FC5 so I updated the version.
This program is completely unusable for me.

Comment 3 Matthias Saou 2006-05-16 09:18:07 UTC
Well, as upstream is unresponsive (there is only spam on the mailing-list...),
the only "solution" I can see is getting this package removed from Extras, as I
unfortunately don't have the time or knowledge to fix these issues, nor port it
to gtk2 (which is a growing problem too).

Comment 4 Matthias Saou 2006-06-30 14:02:51 UTC
Just a quick update to point out that... I'm about to get this package out of
the way for FC-6 : Some of the gtk1/gnome1 libraries it requires are no longer
provided, and upstream development seems sompletely stopped.

I can only suggest to look at other alternatives, like some of the many
web-based LDAP managers out there. Sorry :-(
