    Default Problems installing Open Source Zimbra onto a Red Hat Server

    Hello

    When I try to install Zimbra on a Version 5 Red Hat Server, I get to the point where the installation searches for program prerequisites. Every program is found, except for Fetchmail. When I then go onto install fetchmail, every version that I find seems to have a problem with my server, and the installation does not go through. I was wondering if someone could provide me with either a working fetchmail link, for Linux 5, or an alternative Zimbra installation which does not require fetchmail in the manner that it does now. I have installed a different version of Zimbra on a different server, and I didn't have a problem with it before.

    Thanks.

    Welcome to the forum.

    How did you try to install fetchmail ?
    Is your RHEL5 recorded in the RHN ?

    You should be able to get it from the RHN repositories, if not then try this link: RPM Search fetchmail-6.3.4-1.1_6.0.el5.i386.rpm

    Thank You

    I first tried downloading and just installing fetchmail onto my server, however I was not able to do so. Then I tried downloading the rpm that Phoenix provided for me, and placed the rpm into the packages folder contained in the Zimbra installation folder. I then tried to install zimbra and I get this error.

    Press Return to continue

    Checking for prerequisites...
    NPTL...FOUND
    sudo...FOUND sudo-1.6.7p5-30.1.3
    libidn...FOUND libidn-0.5.6-1
    curl...FOUND curl-7.12.1-8
    fetchmail...MISSING
    gmp...FOUND gmp-4.1.4-3
    /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5...FOUND

    ###ERROR###

    One or more prerequisite packages are missing.
    Please install them before running this installer.

    Installation cancelled.




    Am i putting the download in the wrong folder? Or should I not be installing the RPM. And no, I am not recoreded in the RHN

    You should install the rpm. The zimbra installer won't install it for you.

    Thanks,

    As has already been mentioned, you must install that package yourself. Zimbra does not install any of the prerequisites for you.
