Re: Chain overlay not available in Debian lenny?

Hi all,

Can anyone confirm that the chain overlay is not available in the
version of OpenLDAP (2.4.11-1) that comes with Debian lenny?

Although the man page for it still exists, loading it as a module
result in an error (lt_dlopenext failed: (chain) chain.so: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory), as does activating it
(overlay "chain" not found) as well as attempts to use any of the
"chain-" options in slapd.conf.

Also, there's a Debian bug report (#502769, 19 Oct. 2008) with the
subject "when adding overlay chain to the slapd.conf slapd crashes
with overlay chain not found." No mention is made of a solution, but
could it be that the chain overlay was simply removed from the slapd
package as result?

The chain overlay is not a separate module, it's built into back-ldap.
