Description Ryan T. Dean 2009-05-16 02:50:01 UTC
'krb5-config --libs kadm-server' does not return a list of libraries sufficient for linking programs.  More specifically,
libkadm5srv.so requires symbols from libhdb.so, and -lhdb is not returned by krb5-config.

I noticed this when attempting to compile the smbk5pwd module from OpenLDAP using 'krb5-config --libs kadm-server'; the resulting
module would not load, bring slapd down, and return this error:

/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: /usr/lib/libkadm5srv.so.10: Undefined symbol "hdb_get_dbinfo"

Manually adding -lhdb when linking the module solved the problem


change 'krb5-config --libs kadm-server' to return '-lhdb' in the list

Attempt to link something (such as smbk5pwd) which required kerberos admin server libraries using 'krb5-config --libs
