Hello: I found that 2.5-26 released for sid.

I tried to install it but failed....again.... :-(

The error occurred at the same location with "invalid credentials" message.

Error occurred while running this part at

echo "Changing SF_robot passwd using admin account"
ldapmodify -v -c -D "$sys_ldap_admin_dn" -x -w"$secret"<<-FIN
dn: $sys_ldap_bind_dn
changetype: modify
replace: userPassword
userPassword: $cryptedpasswd

It seems that the problem comes from the "$secret".
This seems to be the global password that enables the user
to add/del/modify any record on the ldap database.

When installing the newest slapd package, dselect shows the password
which it generated randomly and as far as I know, the "rootpw" directive
of slapd.conf contains this global password but the default installation
does not contain "rootpw blahblah" at slapd.conf.

Is the above installation error has anything to do with not having "rootpw"
in slapd.conf or is there any way to specify the global password
for slapd? "man slapd.conf" recommends using SASL instead of
having "rootpw". Should I use SASL in order to install sourceforge?

I wonder if anyone successfully installed the sourceforge just by
following the default dselect choices without hand-editting any files.

Thanks always....
