    Default CentOS4 issue fixed with 5.0.2?

    this is the issue that was holding many centos4 user back due to perl issues. it was supposed to be fixed in 5.0.2. can anyone comment if their move from 4.5.10 or 4.5.11 to 5.0.2 has been alright?

    thanks.

    The problem was people who upgraded their perl from the default system perl. The solution for that is, and always has been, to use the default shipped system perl. There was no "centos4" problem per se. If you read through the announcements you will see that.

    so you're saying that 5.0.2 will not "fix" this perl issue?

    yeah i just got a perl "warning" trying to upgrade to 5.0.2. it says it's looking for perl-5.8.5 and i have version perl-5.8.8-5.el4s1_2.

    so if i proceed will it blow up like before? if it will, how do i "get back" to the recommended perl-5.8.5? i'm not sure if getting back to 5.8.5 will break something.

    i assume what you are saying is that 5.0.2 doesn't "correct" the issue. i would have to downgrade the perl version no matter what. i was under the impression that there would be some kind of correction in 5.0.2 to handle the perl variations.

    Zimbra, like many things, depends on people using the versions of software that ship with the base OS install. If you were to change any number of the dependencies to something other than what shipped, things would break. Perl just happens to be one of them.

    Now, you should be able to get things to work with perl 5.8.8 and 5.0.2, but you will have to install the zimbra software with ./install.sh -s, and then use a script to verify that the Zimbra Scalar::Util works with your perl. If it doesn't (and it likely won't), then what you need to do is re-install scalar::util to the /opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib area using your perl, or try removing the Zimbra shipped scalar::util and use the system one shipped with 5.8.8. One of those two things should work. Once you know you have a working Scalar::Util when running as the zimbra user, then run zmsetup.pl as root.

    Default Migration ok, but doesn't work zimbra 5.0.2

    Hi, im upgrading from zcs 4.5.9 to zcs 5.0.2 on Centos4 (i386), before i restore to perl 5.8.5 by making rpm -Uvh perl-5.8.5-36.RHEL4.* --nodeps --force.
    The process for updating work fine,
    The last version seem work ok, but is doesnt work, The services are UP all, but the send and receiva mails doesnt work by web and by commands (pop-imap-smtp).
    I make a fresh install zcs on other server with Centos4 and the server respond very slow, and finally dowesnt work, i prefer back to zcs 4.0.9 for now,
    Somebody has working zcs 5.0.2 on centos4? with perl 5.8.5?.
    Im expecting this issue for update somes zcs opensource.
    Thanks community
