Default Problem with gdm auth

Hi



i configured an ldap server on debian squeeze and a client ubuntu
10.04.



Trying to login from login screen of the client using ldap user
credentials it doesn't accept it.

Trying from a shell with the command



su - nslcd_proc



it runs.



Checking in /var/log/auth.log i found these
messages:



Apr* 4 15:50:51 dello gdm-session-worker[3414]:
pam_succeed_if(gdm:auth): error retrieving information about user
nslcd_proc

Apr* 4 15:51:04 dello pkexec[3421]: gdm: The value for the SHELL

And how about login from a local LDAP user? It happens the same?

(...)

A similar situation is described here:

FC11 GDM can't authenticate users from LDAP
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=505319

That's for Redhat but you can read the comments to get an idea on what can
be going on at your Debian box.
