I''ve installed Fedora DS 1.1 for x86_64 and am currently extending my

I've placed the converted schema LDIFs in
/etc/dirsrv/my_instance_name/schema/, and restarted the dirsrv service.
The problem is that FDS reject a quite common attribute syntax:
[03/Mar/2008:17:47:54 +0100] dse - The entry cn=schema in file
/etc/dirsrv/my_instance_name/schema/75phpgwcontact.ldif is invalid,
error code 21 (Invalid syntax) - attribute type phpgwContactOwner:
Unknown attribute syntax OID "126.96.36.199.4.1.14188.8.131.52.36"
[03/Mar/2008:17:47:54 +0100] dse - Please edit the file to correct the
reported problems and then restart the server.
This is very strange, considering that 184.108.40.206.4.1.14220.127.116.11.36
(Numeric String) is a quite common attribute syntax and it's present in
Netscape's own RFC 2252, section 6.23:
It's not really Netscape's own
RFC although some of the authors were
6.23. Numeric String
( 18.104.22.168.4.1.1422.214.171.124.36 DESC 'Numeric String' )
The encoding of a string in this syntax is the string value itself.
Surely it can't be that Netscape/Fedora Directory Server doesn't
It can be and it is. Fedora DS does not support Numaric String. Please
file a bug requesting the addition of this feature. In the meantime,
just use a case insensitive string syntax.
