    Default Adding openSUSE 10.3 to file get_plat_tag.sh

    Hi there,

    I wonder if its possible to add "openSUSE 10.3 to the get_plat_tag.sh file before final release of Zimbra 5.

    Maybe as a seperate if statement but still echo back openSUSE 10.2 as the identifier, like below
    Code:
            grep "openSUSE 10.2" /etc/SuSE-release > /dev/null 2>&1
            if [ $? = 0 ]; then
                    echo "openSUSE_10.2"
                    exit 0
            fi
            grep "openSUSE 10.3" /etc/SuSE-release > /dev/null 2>&1
            if [ $? = 0 ]; then
                    echo "openSUSE_10.2"
                    exit 0
            fi
    It appears as there are 2 copies of the file, one installed in /opt/zimbra/libexec/ and one in the bin folder of the zcs installer files, both appear to be seperate.

    On the surface it appears that both openSUSE 10.2 and 10.3 are very structually similar and many of the assumptions made for 10.2 can also be applied to 10.3.

    Can this change be also be made for the next 4.5.x release

    cheers

    I did see you added this info to the sticky install thread - thanks!

    From the other-other thread as far as I can tell no one ever opened an RFE for 10.3
    *points > the way to bugzilla

    It really has to be tested by quality assurance...the last thing they want is for something to happen down the line on 10.3 with NE customers.
    What I said before certainly isn't set in stone (as I don't work for zimbra) Thought I just didn't want to get your hopes up because I know everyone's very overworked right now & they probably groan inside when someone thinks of one more thing for the initial 5.0

    So get that RFE open!

    And also so we don't forget - it was sadly determined:

    I thought the good folk working on getting Zimbra 5 out may be overworked
    which is why I wanted to put it out here in the forum first for discussion
    rather than adding another RFE to the pile.

    Yes this is a concern I have rolling in the back of my head,
    but because the change is specifically targeted at openSUSE 10.3
    and as long as everyone knows its an "unsuported" opensource platform,
    then users can take the risks if they wish in true open source spirit

    or maybe a better way is to change the install.sh file to copy the modified
    get_plat_tag.sh over the top of the one located in /opt/zimbra/libexec

    Thoughts ?????

    I found an issue with having the file /opt/zimbra/libexec/get_plat_tag.sh modified for openSUSE 10.3
    in that it chmod's the sudoers file.

    Unfortunately openSUSE 10.3 now insists that /etc/sudoers must be 0440 whereas previous versions of SUSE
    insisted it needed to be 0640.

    So during the install your now greeted with:
    sudo: /etc/sudoers is mode 0640, should be 0440

    A solution at the moment is to edit /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetup.pl and comment out the offending line like so
    Code:
    # if ($platform =~ /SuSE|openSUSE|SLES/) { `chmod 640 /etc/sudoers`;}
    I will keep this thread posted if there are any other issues.

    Cheers
