1: LDAP is the be-all and end-all. If any service whatsoever does not work
with LDAP, it is worthless, for me. For me, "LDAP" is synonymous with

2: the only stable, recent version of OpenLDAP (as announced by
openldap.org) is 2.2.13. OL 2.1.22 is demonstrably buggy and will
ultimately fsck up your system. The latest, stable, version of 2.1 is
2.1.30 and even that is deprecated and obsolete (source: openldap.org).

3: learn OpenLDAP before you learn Samba, Postfix, Courier IMAP, pam, nss,
- whatever. Learn that OpenLDAP 2.2.23 needs Sleepycat BDB 4.2.52 (2 x
patched), maybe Cyrus SASL 2.1.20. Furthermore, that you need to configure
DB_CONFIG to use it at all.
