HowTo test gosa in debian-edu squeeze


if you are curious to test gosa in debian-edu do the following:

Fetch DVD, for example:
rsync -avzP ftp.skolelinux.org::cd-edu-testing-nolocal-dvd/debian-edu-amd64-i386-DVD-1.iso  debian-edu-DVD-1-squeeze.iso 

Install mainserver and workstation profile for example:
kvm-image create Squeeze05.img 20G
kvm -m 1024 Squeeze05.img -cdrom debian-edu-DVD-1-squeeze.iso 

Start the machine and and add to sources.list:

deb http://oss.gonicus.de/pub/gosa/debian-lenny/ ./ 

install gosa (you probably have to remove libgd2-noxpm)

As of today, compile debian-edu-config from svn and install it. 
Check if /etc/gosa/gosa.conf contains 
                        adminPassword="$RANDPASSWD" />
next to the bottom. If there is already some password, replace it by
$RANDPASSWD and continue. Recreate ldap database with svn debian-edu-config:

/etc/init.d/slapd stop
rm /etc/ldap/slapd.conf
ln -s /etc/ldap/slapd-squeeze_debian-edu.conf /etc/ldap/slapd.conf
rm /var/lib/ldap/*.*


Login as "super-admin" with the root password used during
installation. Enjoy!

Known issues: super-admin cannot change his password; no post-create
scripts run (there will be no user's home directory); no localization configured

Feedback welcome.
