dovecot updates kills NSS
I don't know whether this is my fault or an oversight in pkgsrc
itself or atabases/nss_ldap.
Yesterday, on one of our mail servers, I updated dovecot from a
binary package. The new version was built to depend on a newer
version of openldap-client, so pkg_add -uu updated openldap-client,
too. Unfortunately, the update removed some /usr/pkg/lib/
libldap-2.x.so which the version of nss_ldap running on the machine
was still using. So from that point on, NSS would have no LDAP
backend on the machine. Fortunately, I immediately noticed this since
the installation of the new dovecot package said it locally created
user and group "dovecot" which we have in LDAP. So I managed to stop
postfix before large amounts of mail were bounced due to unknown
To me as a non-expert, the problem appears to be that nss_ldap
registers a dependency for openldap-client>=2.x.y, but in fact
depends on exactly 2.x.y to be installed. Or is the problem caused by
the nature of nss_ldap being a library used by programs outside pkgsrc?
Of course, the problem was easily solved by updating nss_ldap.
