Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 44986
LDAP user authentication fails
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:33:45 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.5-0.2.9 i686)
Description of problem:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set useLDAP to "on" and insert correct LDAPserver/LDAPbaseDN
2. Login via query.cgi?GoAheadAndLogIn=1
Actual Results: Can't locate object method "new" via package
"Mozilla::LDAP::Conn" at CGI.pl line 719.
Expected Results: User logged in and allowed to create/update bug reports.
Clearly related to this [from CGI.pl]:
# commented out the following snippet of code. this tosses errors into the
# CGI if you are perl 5.6, and doesn't if you have perl 5.003.
# We want to check for the existence of the LDAP modules here.
# eval "use Mozilla::LDAP::Conn";
# my $have_ldap = $@ ? 0 : 1;

You may want to try the bugzilla here now and let me know if it works or not:
I'm sorry I haven't been able to test this earlier, I've just been very busy,
and also needed to tweak the LDAP database a bit before I could use it without
having to regenerate all user profiles in Bugzilla.
Anyhow, nothing seems to have changed (except, of course, that other problems I
reported have been resolved). I still get the same error message.
This should be fixed in the 2.14.1 erratum released recently.
