Description Need Real Name 2002-10-07 15:14:09 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.8 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.18-ac3 i686)

Description of problem:
With the release of RedHat 8.0, auth_ldap was removed. Apache 2.x ships with
auth_ldap as a common module now. However, the rpm supplied does not include
this module.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compare RHOS 7.2, 7.3, 8.0, particularly for rpm package: auth_ldap
2. RHOS 7.2 ( auth_ldap-1.4.8-3 ), RHOS 7.3 ( auth_ldap-1.6.0-4 ), RHOS 8.0 (
missing )

Actual Results:  auth_ldap is missing from the RedHat 8.0 distribution.

Expected Results:  Functionality of auth_ldap package from RHOS 7.x is
maintained, either by inclusion as a package added to httpd, or internal 
to the httpd distribution.

Upon further examination, I noticed that mod_auth_ldap is *not* distributed with
apache <= 2.0.40. It was added @ Version 2.0.41. When rebuilding in relation to
BUG # 74882, perhaps you could add the following to configure during the httpd

"--enable-ldap --with-ldap --enable-auth-ldap"

Comment 2 Nick Urbanik 2002-10-10 09:55:21 EDT
I really want this too.  I built a new package with http_ldap from CVS; I hope
Red Hat will include it as an errata before my laboratory exercise with my students!
Comment 3 Joe Orton 2003-05-18 15:04:00 EDT
mod_auth_ldap (and mod_ldap) are included in httpd-2.0.45-4.
Comment 4 David Schroeder 2003-08-27 23:29:17 EDT
I have been waiting for the auth_ldap module to be included in the httpd 
package for since RH7.3 too.

I have just installed RH Enterprise Linux 3 AS Beta 2 and while the LDAP 
modules can be included by rebuilding and adding the configure options, is 
there any reason why they can't be built into future distributions.

The version I am using is httpd-2.0.46-13.ent.i386.rpm
Comment 5 Joe Orton 2003-08-28 02:10:37 EDT
The Taroon beta includes mod_authz_ldap as a separate package, since it is
better tested than the LDAP packages included in httpd.  (and more advanced)
