I'm having a similar problem getting the LDAP module in Webmin to work. When I
click on the icon for LDAP management, it says the Net::LDAP Perl module is not
installed. I click on the link to download and install it, and that seems to go
okay--some of the optional modules fail, but the core perl::ldap succeeds. But
when I try the LDAP manager in Webmin again, I get the same error. I tried to
'yum install perl-LDAP' but it said it couldn't find any such package.
