[Fwd: Re: A Beginner's Question!!]

I run a redhat 7.2 box at home and a 7.1 at work, both of which I put
LDAP on, though it took a little bit of struggle.  The trick is that the
default redhat config only installs the client, devel, and base of
openldap...not the server programs.  I suggest you connect to
updates.redhat.com, and goto 7.2/en/os/i386/ there are several updates
to openldap, including the rpms for all 4 packages(including the server
programs).  rpm -U these, then find where everything of note
installs...rpm -qif (or somthing like that), or whereis openldap. 
Mainly with the redhat distro you will find the important stuff in /etc/
and /etc/openldap..the executables are either in /usr/bin or
/usr/local/bin.  If you installed the source from openldap.org first(I
made that mistake twice) then just rpm -U the redhat packages right over
top of it, and soft link the corresponding .conf files(notably
slapd.conf and ldap.conf (the openldap.org ones are in
/usr/local/etc/openldap) ).  Then when you run ldapmodify, ldapadd or
what have you specifically use the executables in /usr/bin/...so as to
use the redhat ones.  This works just dandy for me.  Hopefully, I can
save others from making my mistakes.  As far as your troubles David, if
you cant find the dir still...maybe you should install windoze (try a
'man find' if all else fails). good luck.

Thanks for your help!!!

 I have upgraded the openldap to 2.0.23-4 by input "rpm -U
openldap-2.0.23-4.i386.rpm",and it is successful. 

According to the admin-guid-docs, I must cd to the directory which
openldap has been installed!! But I don't know where the software has
been installed? 
Please help me!! 
Thanks a lot!!!
