Re: linux-authentication via openldap
I am sorry, but I have to say this:
There isn't a word "authentification." The word is "authentication." I
repeatdely see this over and over again from european people.
This isn't a flame. I just wanted to clear this up.
Example: My login isn't working with my dingleberryfiddlestick.
What the hell is a dingleberryfiddlestick?
What the hell is authentification?
