beware the ides of march, and openldap2: Be warned, woody users: do not upgrade to the version of OpenLDAP from backports.org. I did so on tycho, a machine I maintain, and about an hour later, the other people who use the machine started complaining that they couldn't log in. Myself and the other admins have /etc/passwd logins, but everyone else was LDAP. No-one with LDAP could log in.

That's because our LDAP database was now magically empty. Empty. No amount of dpkg-reconfigure'ing could even convince it to add an admin user to the database. I removed the relevant section from my sources.list, spat on the ground, and swore never to use it again. Stick with the version in woody. (09:44 | #)
