Re: [K12OSN] 1st try samba/ldap = (missing perl Net::LDAP and perl Net::LDAP::LDIF)

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.

Trying out the SMB/LDAP

Following the instructions closely but installation of smbldap-tools
fails with:

perl Net::LDAP is needed by smbldap-tools perl Net::LDAP::LDIF is needed by smbldap-tools

Yet when I check with cpan it shows they are installed.

I've googled the heck out of this and have found vague references but
nothing that helped.

Only thing I can think of is the perl modules are a newer version than
what is expected by smbldap-tools-0.8.4-1

any ideas?


I had the same problem, it seems the CPAN-modules are registered in your RPM-database.
I solved this by downloading a third party http://dag.wieers.com/packages/perl-Net-LDAP/perl-Net-LDAP-0.2701-1.rhfc1.dag.noarch.rpm

from http://dag.wieers.com/packages/perl-Net-LDAP/


Actually it's a matter of what is not registered in the RPM database.
No need to go outside of FC2 distro - just install perl-LDAP rpm and its pre-requisites. The easiest way to do that if you have a speedy Internet connection is 'yum install perl-LDAP'

Then to illustrate what is registered as provided by that rpm run this command (harmless):
rpm -q --provides perl-LDAP
