  1. Failed to save user : Failed to add user to LDAP database : no structural object class provided


    I encountered the above error when trying to add a user, though I can add a group on ldap but when trying to add a user, that's the error.

    Any idea on that one? really appreciate any help.. TIA

  2. Thanks for the reply Ian,


    There's really a small chance as mentioned on horde website to sync MS outlook calendar to Horde, currently am trying it but sad to say, no success so far. There's a third party software/plugin for outlook that should be installed on MS Windows.


    BTW, the plugin is funambol.


    Really appreciate if you or someone might able to make it work then share it here.





  3. And It would be better if you mount nfs shared folder with automount or autofs, that way, you dont have to make a permanent mount which sometimes can cause the other host to freeze when the nfs-server being accessed is not accessible. I mean with autofs, you can set a time-out so it will released the network mounted drive when being idle for certain period (set) and will re-mount it on demand. Please forgive me, it should be another topic, but sort of related to what you want...


    just a suggestion though....

  4. swap location does not matter on wether you can boot or not on mandriva, though you only need one.


    You should be able to identify the partitions of your mandriva, where the / or boot been located, or did you just use a single partition for your mandriva during install? if yes, where it is located below?


    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 * 1 7077 56845971 83 Linux
    /dev/sda2 7078 9729 21302190 5 Extended
    /dev/sda5 7078 8096 8185086 83 Linux
    /dev/sda6 9554 9729 1413688+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
    /dev/sda7 8097 8456 2891668+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
    /dev/sda8 8457 9553 8811621 83 Linux




    are you finished installing mandriva?

  5. hmmn... well, you can configure both the other way around, nfs (server-client / client-server).


    Another way to access / manage both pc, enable ssh daemon on them, that way, you can remote access on each side.. just enable it

    /etc/init.d/sshd start

    if not mistaken, it's already enabled by default.


    then you can access your other pc via konqueror, open it up then at the url, type:


    and it will ask you a username and password, those are the user/passwd of the remote machine.


    that's another way of accessing/sharing your pc

  6. just a suggestion,


    since you already setup the other pc as an nfs server, what if you will create a folder on that PC and make that one folder a repositories of files you want to access on both pc... assuming that you have setup an nfs rw share. On your nfs server, you can access that locally, and from your other end, you can access read and write on that remotely, mounting that just like a local folder, then thats it, you have a folder being access on both machine.. you don't need to create share on both, unless on some circumstances..



  7. try to compare this with yours or try to use this,


    auth		required	  pam_env.so
    auth		sufficient	pam_unix.so nullok try_first_pass
    auth		requisite	 pam_succeed_if.so uid >= 500 quiet

    session	 [success=1 default=ignore] pam_succeed_if.so service in crond quiet use_uid
    session	 required	  pam_unix.so
    session	 optional	  pam_ldap.so


    This was taken on my centos using ldap and local accounts as auth server...

    Using authconfig, there's an option to chose both local and ldap. In Mandriva, using drakauth, there's no option to choose both, that may be the problem, you have to manually edit the file


    . Try to compare yours on the above quoted. On my desktop (mandriva), I authenticate to local and winbind (AD 2003) and here's my mandriva

    auth		sufficient	pam_unix.so likeauth nullok

    just try...

  8. portmaper doesnt run and rpc.nfsd is also not working.


    portmap is a service which you should start first as nfs requirement..


    chkconfig portmap on




    service portmap start




    /etc/init.d/portmap start





    about samba, portmap is not related on it, just make sure you have samba-server installed, not the samba-client only


    [root@aioshin ~]# rpm -qa | grep samba





  9. I have tried it on Centos5, using the kiosktool and partially working, I can now Control the KDE Environment of a particular users that belong to a certain group where the policy being implemented... though I need to dig more on its configurations, but at least there's a chance.




  10. have anyone from here tried this?


    I have read that kiosk admin tool will do help this kind of setup. When tried at my Mandriva desktop, it seems always failing, anyway, am still exploring it, just an advance query if someone from here have tried it already and implemented it in replacement to AD group policy alike.


    really appreciated any inputs..





  11. No idea... but as we know, gaim is now pidgin, so there might be some code changes being made, and I have'nt seen any update from the chix author.


    You may try their Java Player instead.

  12. I find the postfix documentation and the documentation on the internet very confusing, it doesn't make me wiser. So can someone please explain me how I can get my mailserver working with IMAP and SMTP?


    I know postfix.org itself has so many information.. detailed information on how to install POSTFIX. Just read and understand their given example.. and how-to... its all there already...


    IMAP - http://dovecot.org has also lots of howtos... and its very simple to install ... you may want to try it.


    PHP5, Mandriva 2007 ships php5 by default.. if you want to use php version 4, then try the previous version of mandy or (different distro).. if you dont want to install from souce.
