svnserve: could not find auxprop plugin, was searching for 'ldap'
is appearing in /var/log/auth.log
Test setup: I am opening Tortoise-SVN repo-browser on a Windows client machine
Instead I expect svnserve to use the ldap lib and saslauthd
Which perfectly works on my older subversion server running Ubuntu 11.04 with ubuntu's binary SVN packages.
How do I get that to work on the new server, too?
__Why does it not work on the ("new") Ubuntu 12.04 server with Subversion 1.8.1 built from source?
I think I ruled out a lot of usual suspects:
- Saslauthd is not a suspect, because by using testsaslauthd on the same 12.04 server, I AM able to auth against our Active Directory. Also, The error (above) says "svnserve..." not "sasl...".
- All the configuration files are identical to my working installation on my old Ubuntu 11.04 server, so I have no reason to doubt them.
Currently, in my view, only the svnserve binary is left as the main suspect.
On that "svnserve is the problem" road I found my only current hint to a cause:
The working svnserve on the ("old") 11.04 server has the following linking (as seen with ldd):
libldap_r-2.4.so.2 => /usr/lib/libldap_r-2.4.so.2
I guess that I did not manage to get that linking included in my source build.
__Details (on the not working setup):
Subversion 1.8.1 is built from source, on Ubuntu 12.04 64bit, with sqlite amalgamation.
uname -a @12.04 server:
Ubuntu Packages installed with "ldap" in their name:
Installed: ldap-utils 2.4.28-1.1ubuntu4.3
Config files (as I said, I have no reason to doubt them):
__Details on the working ("old") setup:
Although I do not want to make this an Ubuntu discussion,
uname -a @11.04 server: (the old working setup)
Config: as above with the not working setup.
There are a lot more libraries that are linked into svnserve
libldap_r-2.4.so.2 => /usr/lib/libldap_r-2.4.so.2 (0x00007f22fb596000)
I DO have installed all those library packages on both systems.
thanks in advance,
