Re: [K12OSN] re: smbldap CreatingLDAPClients & smbldap slow login (P Nakashima)



I wouldn't think that the Fedora/Ubuntu mix has anything to do with it.
And if the same machine running the same OS behaves differently when you
log in as a local user vs. logging in as a smbldap user, I'd say the
problem is not hardware related either.  Unfortunately I can't help you
diagnose your smbldap problems, because I have no experience w/ it.

Good luck!

When I login as a "non-local" smbldap user, the panels don't work. Our users usually login via our thin clients to our Fedora based K12LTSP6 server. The Ubuntu fat client is a test box to see if I can add fat clients to our system, but still authenticate and mount home from our smbldap server. Could this Fedora/Ubuntu combination be part of the problem?

It's weird because everything else seems to work fine. I can open, edit, and save OO.org documents. I can pretty much do anything that doesn't require panel based commands.
