I don't seem to have any ldap binaries in /usr/bin. Which ones are you
Hm - you must not have the openldap client or tools package installed.

Using LD_LIBRARY_PATH is supposed to be "A Bad Thing". Why not
# ldconfig /opt/fedora-ds/shared/lib
That works too, as long as you can guarantee that having those libraries
in the default path won't mess up other apps e.g. on RHEL4 Firefox and
Thunderbird use private copies of nspr, nss, and mozldap, which are
different versions than those in /opt/fedora-ds/shared/lib.
Thanks for your reply.
