    bizarre. i deleted all, restored old cvs version from a tarball, upgraded again and this time it worked fine. first time the old mailstore was there but it overwrote the ldap tree with a fresh one - the setup log also indicated a new install.

    hopefully this build will cure the imap lockups - i've been having to restart by hand twice a day.

    thank you thank you thank you for binary debian release!!!!!

    Debian folks - did you install it? Does it work? What do you like? What do you hate (aside from download size). What needs fixing?
    I just read your message. I will install it this weekend. Have some internet troubles @home

    This is what I was waiting for!!!

    I am looking forward to run zimbra :-)

    Thank you very much...

    UPDATE: I'm already downloading it :-)

    First problem:

    Checking for prerequisites...
    NPTL...MISSING

    what does this mean? I moved /lib/tls out of the way because I am running an UML environment...

    Okay i found that this is caused by disabling tls.

    Can I use zimbra without NPTL? Otherwise zimbra can never run in UML or XEN...

    Default omg Just my luck :)

    After struggling with the debian install from sourec for abou a week, I just recieved permission to backup/wipe and install fedora to try zimbra. Then I go to the forum and see an install is available for my beloved debian. Okay, will go ahead with fedora and if everything okay, wipe and try debian install.

    Default Install error

    Shouldn't there be a check to see if I have perl installed? It wasn't installed. I think it should be checked by the script?


    Can't locate Getopt/Std.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /opt/zimbra/libexec/scripts /opt/zimbra/libexec /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.4 /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.4 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.8 /usr/share/perl/5.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetup.pl line 35.

    NPTL comes with the system libs that come with kernel 2.6. long story short, upgrade the box to 2.6 kernel and things should work much better. if you're building from source, you can hack utils/utilfunc.sh and comment line 254 'GOOD=no' out which will bypass the check, but this WONT work with binaries.

    'perl -v' doesnt return anything? i can't remember the last time i saw a unix install without perl, and the error below i think is from perl itself not finding modules. i found i had to install a bunch of extra modules for zimbra by hand when installing from source. best way is to use cpan - 'perl -MCPAN -e 'install "Getopt::Std"', for instance.

    this is quite interesting. the binary install is much, much faster than any of my source installs! thanks again

    NPTL is not an option for an UML system.

    Where can I find the source? And do the buildscripts work on Debian?

    there's a forum thread in this forum showing where to get cvs. there's a main branch and a CRAY branch, i believe CRAY is more up to date but that might not be true.

    third party build process is a little fiddly, but the zimbra build is sweet. i build the third party stuff by hand following instructions from ZimbraServer/docs/build_cvs_somethingorother.txt. make sure you download proper version of ant from apache, the debian one is borked.
