Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 6
Name        : nss_ldap
Version     : 257
Release     : 3.fc6
Summary     : NSS library and PAM module for LDAP
Description :
This package includes two LDAP access clients: nss_ldap and pam_ldap.
Nss_ldap is a set of C library extensions that allow X.500 and LDAP
directory servers to be used as a primary source of aliases, ethers,
groups, hosts, networks, protocol, users, RPCs, services, and shadow
passwords (instead of or in addition to using flat files or NIS).

Pam_ldap is a module for Linux-PAM that supports password changes, V2
clients, Netscape's SSL, ypldapd, Netscape Directory Server password
policies, access authorization, and crypted hashes.

Update Information:

This update upgrades the nss_ldap package to the latest
available version, and corrects a bug which would cause
DNS-based autoconfiguration to regularly fail.
