Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 77232
cyrus sasl should be compiled --with-lda
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:48:07 EDT
Description of Problem:
cyrus-saslauthd does not come with ldap out of the box.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try setting the saslauthd mech to "ldap" in the init.d file.
saslauthd does not support ldap.
I recompiled the saslauthd rpm --with-ldap and installed it. It works great, but
the reason for using 8.0 is so that there's less compiling in the future :/
Same issue exists on 8.0 except when you attempt to recompile the src.rpm it
fails due to a dependency on autoconf213.
Well digging in the CDs I found the autoconf213 rpm, and suprisingly after
installing it is seems to coexist quite nicely with autoconf-2.53-8. So I was
able to recompile with the --with-ldap option added to the cyrus-sasl.spec
