  Ugh.

  Use the packages from http://packages.networkradius.com.  They're not crap, unlike the standard (years-old) RedHat ones.

  RedHat in their infinite wisdom decided to switch to using NSS instead of OpenSSL.  So they shipped things like libldap, which only link to NSS.  And since FreeRADIUS uses OpenSSL, bad things happen.

  The packages noted above don't have this issue.

  The actual error should be in the radius.log file.  Go read that to see what's going on.

  Or, run the server in debugging mode as suggested *everywhere*.  Odds are you edited the configuration and broke it.
