    Default Installing zimbra with native debian lenny x86_64 packages

    Hi,

    My be I have too much time or want to learn how zimbra works or thinks that packages from debian should be used where ever possible, any way, I am exploring if I can just configure pure debian packages in such a way that zimbra can use them instead of just compiling an installing a custom version of all open source packages.

    I am having a debian lenny x86_64 box and there is no zimbra available for it. So I am thinking rather than just building all from source why not just configure zimbra so that it can just use the debian packages where ever possible. This *theoretically* has the advantage that upgrading clamav etc will be independent of zimbra and can use the full power of debian package repository.

    I have no idea if what I am attempting is stupid or not but I have not seen any one attempting to do this. So just checking with community if there are any major road blocks ahead of my path

    Yep, the packages have been modified for Zimbra use I would really not attempt this for three reasons 1) Will most probably fail 2) Issues when ZCS is upgraded 3) No support. Sorry
