Re: Linux Kernel Compatibility

Is there anybody who can tell me about the compatibility between OpenLDAP
2.2.x and the Linux Kernel ?
Is OpenLDAP 2.2.x compatible with Linux 2.4.24, or with Linux 2.4.21, or
with Linux 2.4.18 ?
I'm not sure what you mean by are they compatible? Last I check, the Linux
kernel had no dependencies on any LDAP implementation, nor did the
underlying operating system.
Do you mean, can you compile OpenLDAP on systems running those revisions of
the Linux kernel? There shouldn't be any reason why you couldn't. Or do
you mean, can systems running those revisions of the Linux kernel use PAM
to talk to OpenLDAP 2.2? Most likely they can, since it all speaks the
LDAP Protocol, which hasn't changed between OpenLDAP releases, since
OpenLDAP simply implements the LDAP protocol, and is not its own protocol
in and of itself...
Hope that helps. :)
