There are still some issues with building Fedora Directory server from
source. Red Hat has committed the project to open source and has
released it with a GPL license but getting it to build is obviously a
problem. If you are running CentOS, there is no reason why you can't
install the binaries that are already built...you can download the
binaries here...


I haven't had any issues with using Fedora Directory server and there is
a mail list that supports Fedora Directory server here...


You should know that CentOS comes with (a fairly outdated) version of
OpenLDAP which can be installed simply with the command...

# yum install openldap-server

Administration Guide for above is here

If you want to install current OpenLDAP, you will have to install from
source - see this...
