Seeing that my Feisty server is pretty much hosed (for no reason I can
figure out), I thought it would be a good time to test out Hardy.

I am trying to install smbldap in Hardy.

First I downloaded the smbldap installer and ran that. After doing so
the server froze on boot up before getting to the gdm login screen.

I found this thread which was helpful.

I was able to make some manual changes that allowed me to get into the
gui environment by using this howto from Jim Kronebusch.


I logged in with recovery mode and made the following changes.

Edit /etc/ldap.conf and change the following lines like so:
        uri ldap://ser.ver.ip.add/
        rootbinddn cn=admin,dc=mydomain,dc=com
        bind_policy soft

Now I can log in, but I am can't use the smbldap tool to add users or
groups etc. I am not sure how much more of the howto I should try to
do, for fear of messing up the smbldap installation.

Jim's howto seems to address the ldap side only and not the smb side.
After installing smbldap using the Matt's installer, what changes should I
Should I just uninstall smbldap and follow Jim's how to?

I am a bit confused how to proceed from here. Any help gladly accepted.
