    Default Unable to Install

    I am trying to install the build for Ubuntu 8.04. I am trying to install this on Kubuntu 8.04, I understand this is meant to be installed under the Ubuntu Server Edition, however, I see no reason why it shouldn't be able to be installed under Kubuntu. I get the following error:

    ERROR: Installation can not proceeed. Please fix your /etc/hosts file
    to contain:

    Where is the ip address of the host,
    is the FULLY QUALIFIED host name, and
    is the (optional) hostname-only portion

    Here is what my /etc/hosts file looks like:

    cat /etc/hosts localhost warlock silvertiger

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to what is causing the problem and how to correct it?

    Typical layout: localhost.localdomain localhost
    x.x.x.x hostname

    host `hostname` <---those are backticks
    dig mx 
    dig any
    I'm not sure what your setup is - you probably need a Split DNS - Zimbra :: Wiki Another article on BIND: /blog/archives/2007/06/making-zimbra-bind-work-together.html though there's other DNS alternatives it's a common one in the forums.

    (Other option to running a split dns would be to un-check "Enable DNS Lookups" and use a mail relay for outgoing. Or lastly, though not really preferred, modifying the zimbraMailTransport to contain [name] (still requires a good hosts file) or put in an IP address instead, but you'd have to modify it for every user if IP were to change later.)
