    Default Problems installing 4.x on RHEL4

    So I'm installing ZImbra OSS 4.5.8 on a fresh build of RHEL4.3, and during install I get thousands of these processes:

    00:00:00 /bin/bash /bin/unicode_start latarcyrheb-sun16
    zimbra 32601 32582 0 12:06 tty1 00:00:00 /bin/bash /bin/unicode_start latarcyrheb-sun16
    zimbra 32620 32601 0 12:06 tty1 00:00:00 /bin/bash /bin/unicode_start latarcyrheb-sun16
    zimbra 32639 32620 0 12:06 tty1 00:00:00 /bin/bash /bin/unicode_start latarcyrheb-sun16
    zimbra 32658 32639 0 12:06 tty1 00:00:00 /bin/bash /bin/unicode_start latarcyrheb-sun16
    zimbra 32677 32658 0 12:06 tty1 00:00:00 /bin/bash /bin/unicode_start latarcyrheb-sun16
    zimbra 32696 32677 0 12:06 tty1 00:00:00 /bin/bash /bin/unicode_start latarcyrheb-sun16
    zimbra 32715 32696 0 12:06 tty1 00:00:00 /bin/bash /bin/unicode_start latarcyrheb-sun16




    What is going on here? Anyone encounter this?

    They eventually thrash the machine to a halt. This has happened now 4 times and I can't even get 4.5.8 completely installed.....

    Why are you trying to install 4.5.8 (very old) on a 4.3 RH server (very old too) ???

    This is a unicode issue that happens on "old" RH.
    Try this : CentOS - UTF-8 - unicode start - Zimbra :: Wiki

    hi: RHEL 4.x is not so old- a majority of sites still use it.

    I'm installing 4.5.8 so that I can upgrade it to 4.5.10, then upgrade to 5.0.1. I've had 4.5.8 on Fedora 4, and am trying to get to ZCS 5.0.1- and RHEL 4 is supported on both sides (4 & 5) and is also very stable.

    Thanks for the link, I'll check it out.

    I think he was referring to the age of the RHEL update...they are at RHEL 4.6 at this point. I think the docs at some point said 4.3 was the supported version, but 4.6 will work without issue and it is probably good to go with the latest in the 4.x version of RHEL (if you choose not to do RHEL 5).

    With up2date they are all the same- the packages get updated just the same I believe.

    Then setup your RHEL 4.3 and use up2date then reboot.
    You'll get the new kernel and you'll see (on reboot and in /etc/redhat-release) that you are now running RHEL 4.6.

    Then download Zimbra 5.0.1 and install it "directly", you'll save two steps (4.5.8 to 4.5.10, then 4.5.10 to 5.0.1).
