it depends on what you mean by "use LDAP"; if you're just talking  
about doing UID and password mapping via LDAP, then yes, that's  
handled by PAM, but the --use-ldap directive to sudo enables it to  
pull configuration information (that is usually stored in /etc/ 
sudoers) from a LDAP database, and that process has nothing to do  
with PAM.


based on that snippet of .spec file, i don't believe the stock sudo  
is compiled with LDAP support.  Camron, do you know how to modify a  
SRPM?  you'll need to install the SRPM, edit the .spec, and recompile.


If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an  
improbable fiction. - Fabian, Twelfth Night, III,v
