    Default [SOLVED] Ubuntu 6.06.1 problem upgrading from NE 5.0.1 to 5.0.2

    I installed NE 5.0.1 last week and everything seems to be working just fine. Today I tried to upgrade to 5.0.2 by unpacking the .tgz file and running ./install.sh. Everything is fine up until the prerequisites check. Here it says that libperl is missing and refuses to continue. I installed the two packages that I thought could provide this (libperl5.8 and libperl-dev) but the installer is still reporting this packages as missing. Anyone else run into this? Any thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Mike Chapman

    Modify the utilfunch.sh to not look for it. That is only supposed to be a requirement for UBUNTU6_64. You are installing 32-bit zimbra on 64-bit ubuntu, aren't you?

    Actually I am running 32-bit Ubuntu 6.06.1 but with a 64-bit kernel under Xen. That's why get_plat_tag.sh was returning the 64-bit version. I modified get_plat_tag.sh to not return 64-bit and all is well.

    Thanks for the help,

    Just to note, it is advised not to use Xen, as it fails to support assembly level locks required by various pieces of software. You have the potential to suffer data loss at any given time.

    do you happen to know if kvm/parallels/vmware is also affected by this?

    The only VM I know of being affected by it is Xen.

    Is there an RFE to make Zimbra compatible with Xen? This seems like a large drawback as I'm sure many people are interested in using virtualization.

    Do you have any details on the problem that running Zimbra with Xen could cause? Are there any workarounds?

    Thanks,

    Mike Chapman

    The problem is not something Zimbra can do anything about. It is up to the Xen developers to fix their software.

    Please see:
