    Default INFO/ERROR - Upgrade from Debian Etch to Debian Lenny

    Hi Forum,

    Here is the daily misadventure :
    Having a ZCS Network Edition 5.0.10 for Ubuntu6 under Debian Etch, I decided to upgrade to the new stable release Lenny (Debian stable 5.0).

    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    apt-get dist-upgrade

    Debian users/administrators know this well... When rebooting (because of new kernel version) Zimbra's services were not starting.

    After reboot trying by hand :
    $ su zimbra
    $ zmcontrol start

    /usr/bin/perl: symbol lookup error: /opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib/i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi/auto/IO/IO.so: undefined symbol: Perl_Tstack_sp_ptr

    Ouch... Zimbra seems not to like perl upgrade from 5.8.8 to 5.10.0...

    Solution :
    cd /var/cache/apt/archives
    dpkg -i perl_5.8.8-7etch6_i386.deb perl-base_5.8.8-7etch6_i386.deb perl-modules_5.8.8-7etch6_i386.deb

    Don't care about these messages
    dpkg - warning: downgrading...
    It's exactly what we want !

    Hope this may be useful to other people. Better simply not upgrade the Perl packages

    Pat.

    It's not a good idea to run theZimbra NE on an unsupported operating system, you invalidate your support.

    Please vote for Bug 34921 - Lenny Support for 6.0 (GunsNRoses) and update your profile so we know which version of ZCS you are running
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol -v

    Hi Phoenix,
    As it's an open software too, I thought it would be supported at least on Debian as Ubuntu is Debian based...
    So for next install we'll probably choose Ubuntu.

    Thanks for information.

    Regards,
    Pat

    Hi Uxbod,

    Voted for the bug and profile was updated.

    Regards,
    Pat.
    Various 5.x Zimbra versions both Network and Open editions
    Use them under Red Hat and Debian (which shouldn't be) :s

    No, the operating systems listed for NE are the only supported ones i.e. they have been tested for those specific versions. It's not that they can't be installed or won't run (as you've already shown) it's just the fact the o/s upgrades may introduce unexpected changes and cause support problems or break a Zimbra installation.
    Regards
