authentication mechanisms. Worse yet, the Linksys proprietary code (and
hence Unslung) is designed with the assumption that all user ids and
passwords are contained in /etc/passwd and /etc/group. So you'll find
that the usefulness of an ldap client on Unslung will be limited to
specific programs, such as (perhaps) the versions of samba that you
might install from the feeds.
