Re: SASL Chaos?

Well, i'm now able to use users i added to /etc/sasldb.
Maybe i'll stick with that (the thing i want this most for was
replication to a secondary server if my ldap directory)

I wasn't able to get these to work with PAM either...
SASL could need some straight forward documentation and examples IMHO
(as could LDAP, lot's of people are having problems AFAIK...)

And - according to some documents i found - you can configure SASL
behaviour for specific apps via files in /usr/lib/sasl/
("strace slapd" shows that it's accessing /usr/lib/sasl/slapd.conf)
- which is in violation of debian policy and FHS, isn't it?

Well, i guess i'll still need to investigate SASL further, i guess i
might want to use it... any hints of helpful documents in the net?
