This topic, in general, is more appropriate for other lists.
OpenLDAP Software, itself, has little to do with Linux user auth
(except for possibly providing access to and/or storing
information in support of applications providing such
services).  For instance, questions about pam_ldap
and nss_ldap should be directed to pamldap@padl.com
and nssldap@padl.com mailing lists, respectively.

Personally, I view back-ldbm is deprecated in favor of back-bdb.

For OpenLDAP, by itself, see the Admin Guide and FAQ.

For Linux user authentication, see other works on other sites
supported by other lists.
