Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake The version of sudo shipped with 2009.1 has an incorrect path to /etc/ldap.conf compiled in. This means that users who have their sudo config supplied by their ldap server will find their rules no longer apply. This updated package uses the correct /etc/ldap.conf file. See http://www.sudo.ws/sudo/readme_ldap.html for more information on configuring sudo with ldap.
