Re: heimdal kerberos on debian?
Project pages are at:
and manual at:
and you can install it too.
Heimdal communicates with LDAP trough unix sockets and I believe that there is still a problem that heimdal expects it to be in /var/run/ldapi and slapd actually creates /var/run/slapd/ldapi, but you can fix it trough appropriate start option for slapd (in /etc/default/slapd)
I am not sure if debian ships with appropriate schema for heimdal, but it is included in heimdal source, sou you can download it and use it (no need to compile it).
Otherwise it runs fine with debian.
Little trickier is to build smbk5pwd overlay on debian if you really need it.
