Hi *, A Debian user asked for a description of debugging options in the slapd(8) manpage in http://bugs.debian.org/176980. I just tried to update the manpage to contain a list of available values and discovered that they are already described in slapd.conf(5). Therefore I changed slapd.8 as in the attached patch. Perhaps you could do something like this to the official sources so people stop wondering about the debug-level. In any case the refernce to ldap.h is bogus as well as the DEBUG_xxx contants are defined in ldap_log.h. As a side note: The list in slapd.conf(5) is not complete, the description of LDAP_DEBUG_CACHE and LDAP_DEBUG_INDEX is missing. Greetings Torsten
