    Default Installing Zimbra on Ubuntu 8.04 server

    Will there be any support for Ubuntu 8.04 server? I tried to use the 6.06 LTS install that you have on your site, but it keeps coming back saying it is an invalid OS. Is there a change in a script that I can make, or must the package be redone for 8.04?

    Or, can I use the Debian 4 version?

    I'm pretty much married to Ubuntu 8.04 server - I need a good email/collaboration solution for that platform.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    ....... and did you see the warning message when you were installing and the --platform-override option?
    Regards

    Default yes, tried platform override

    Yes, I saw that, and tried it. Same error, no change.

    I don't know why you'd get an error as it's supposed to let you install on an unsupported operating system. I believe others have used that recently, check the threads that uxbod has given you links.

    I've not had any bug reports so I assume they work fine now.

    Hello,

    I am using Starter Edition (zcs-NETWORK-5.0.6_GA_2313.UBUNTU6_64) on Ubuntu Gutsy (2.6.18 x86_64). I didn't experienced any problems with installation. As I remember I only made two changes:
    - renamed file /etc/debian_version
    - changed /etc/lsb-release to:
    DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=6
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=gutsy
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 6.06"

    Hope this helps. I found this solution somewhere on this forum or wiki...

    I changed 2 installation files to get it to work, although I think only one was necessary. My diffs is below

    PHP Code:
    ./bin/get_plat_tag.sh 
    160
    ,164d159
    <       fi
    <       grep "DISTRIB_RELEASE=8" /etc/lsb-release > /dev/null 2>&1
    <       if [ $? = ]; then
    <               echo "8${i}"
    <               exit 0

    ./util/utilfunc.sh 
    1651c1651
    <   if [ $PLATFORM "DEBIAN3.1" -o $PLATFORM "UBUNTU6" -o $PLATFORM "UBUNTU7" -o $PLATFORM "UBUNTU8" -o $PLATFORM "UBUNTU6_64" -o $PLATFORM "UBUNTU7_64" -o $PLATFORM "DEBIAN4.0" -o $PLATFORM "DEBIAN4.0_64" -o $PLATFORM "UBUNTUUNKNOWN" -o $PLATFORM "DEBIANUNKNOWN" ]; then
    ---
    >   if [ 
    $PLATFORM "DEBIAN3.1" -o $PLATFORM "UBUNTU6" -o $PLATFORM "UBUNTU7" -o $PLATFORM "UBUNTU6_64" -o $PLATFORM "UBUNTU7_64" -o $PLATFORM "DEBIAN4.0" -o $PLATFORM "DEBIAN4.0_64" -o $PLATFORM "UBUNTUUNKNOWN" -o $PLATFORM "DEBIANUNKNOWN" ]; then
    1659c1659
    <     if [ $PLATFORM "UBUNTU6" -o $PLATFORM "UBUNTU7" -o $PLATFORM "UBUNTU8" ]; then
    ---
    >     if [ 
    $PLATFORM "UBUNTU6" -o $PLATFORM "UBUNTU7" ]; then

    both of the methods above have a couple of issues, but the better one is altering /etc/lsb-release rather than the zimbra installer files. the reason is that there are a few files within the installer packages that need altering as well which is very difficult to do.

    full diff attached to bug, if anyone's interested (and bored!).
