RE: need installation help !

Sunil -

Read the solaris-specific installation FAQ at openldap:


You will probably have to deal with the pthreads issue as described above. 

Then you will need a database backend (gdbm works). You can't add anything
to the ldbm without this, which is probably why ldif2ldbm is failing. Make
gdbm and then rebuild ldap.

Subject: need installation help !

I'm a student in the University of Minnesota and I was hoping to get some
help in installing the Openldap package since i'm quite new to the concept
of LDAP and its functionalities.

1) i'm working on a sun ultra workstation with solaris 2.5 operating
system.as of now i just need to install the stand alone ldap server and
write some client programs to test on it.

2) what exactly shud the changes be in the ldapconfig.h.edit file ?
 i understand that i shud change these entries....

#define DEFAULT_DIRSEP    "/"
#define DEFAULT_BINDIR          "%BINDIR%"
#define DEFAULT_SBINDIR         "%SBINDIR%"
#define DEFAULT_DATADIR         "%DATADIR%"
#define DEFAULT_RUNDIR          "%RUNDIR%"

but WHAT EXACTLY should i change them to ?

3) what config options should i give ?
i tried 'configure' with no options.it seemed to 'make build' and 'make'
without any problems.but 'make' in the 'test' directory gave this error.

ln: ./data: cannot overwrite directory
make: [all-local] Error 1 (ignored)
Initiating LDAP tests...
>>>>> Executing all LDAP tests...
>>>>> Test Directory: .
>>>>> Starting test001-ldif2ldbm ...

id2entry file: Resource temporarily unavailable
stopping: child exited with status 1
ldif2ldbm failed!
>>>>> ./scripts/test001-ldif2ldbm failed (exit 1)
make: *** [all-local] Error 1

4) should i give any options for the ldbm package or use the default ?

I shall appreciate very much if someone could guide me on this !!
Thanks and have a good day,
