    Unhappy Problems Installing Open Source Edition on Fedora 9

    Hi Everybody,

    I've been trying to install the Open-Source Zimbra package, v5.0.7, on a new Fedora 9 machine. I've searched the forums and other Zimbra documentation, and have found that there is no mention of installing it on Fedora 9, only Fedora 8.

    I do have to use the --platform-override option to the install.sh script. I've satisfied all the requirements of the installer, as it outputs:

    Checking for prerequisites...
    NPTL...FOUND
    sudo...FOUND sudo-1.6.9p13-4
    libidn...FOUND libidn-0.6.14-7
    fetchmail...FOUND fetchmail-6.3.8-7
    gmp...FOUND gmp-4.2.2-7
    /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5...FOUND
    Prerequisite check complete.

    I go ahead with the default answers, when prompted about which Zimbra packages to install. It seems that the packages install, but the script then dies directly after the spell package with:

    /usr/bin/perl: symbol lookup error: /opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/IO/IO.so: undefined symbol: Perl_Tstack_sp_ptr


    Things I've Done:
    *placed A and MX records in our DNS server for the machine's hostname, and the machine is properly set up to query the DNS.
    *placed a symlink for /etc/syslog.conf.
    *installed the compat-libstdc++-296.i386, compat-libstdc++-33.i386, and compat-db packages.
    *fully updated the machine using `yum update'.

    uname output:
    Linux 2.6.25-14.fc9.i686 #1 SMP Thu May 1 06:28:41 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    Perl version:
    This is perl, v5.10.0 built for i386-linux-thread-multi


    Any help is much appreciated.

    Question Zimbra on Fedora 9

    I have a similar problem. I have downloaded the RPM for Fedora 9, but when it installs, I get the error "One or more prerequisite packages not fond." However, it doesn't tell me what I am missing.

    Related, on the download page, it seems indicated that it will only work with Fedora 9 x86 on a x64 system. Is this a typo? x86 on x86 doesn't work, so I am thinking about wiping my x64 server installation and putting x86 Fedora on it. (strangely, I had to do a similar thing with another application, Pervasive SQL)

    Any hints would be appreciated.

    I don't know where you're reading this but there's no build for FC9 and definitely no 64 bit build. The only current build is for FC7 and that's a 32bit build.

    If you want a stable server then install CentOS and use the RHEL build.

    Default Zimbra with CentOS 5 x64 and Fedora 7

    Ok, after reading the last post, I fired up two PCs

    The first I loaded CentOS 5 x64
    These are the dependancies I don't have and can't find:

    compat-libstdc++-296...MISSING
    compat-libstdc++-33...MISSING
    /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5...MISSING
    /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.5...MISSING

    I tried Googling them, but I can't seem to find a straight forward answer. Is there a package I can get somewhere?

    The second I loaded with Fedora 7

    So far, I am not having any trouble.

    Centos 5 Install Guide

    you need to follow this post's how to to install Zimbra on CentOS..
    Almost every Distributions has its own small little things you need to do right to get zimbra install flawlessly.
    personally we prefer CentOS over Fedora as its version dont change in 6 months and it has more long terms version support.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I followed the tread, got a Centos 5 server going. I get stumped on the instruction where I am told to configure Fetchmail, but there are no instructions on how to do that.

    Since that post thread is closed, and the author has not replied to my email, is there another, more recent how to you could direct me to?

    Thank You in advance.

    There is no configuration necessary for fetchmail, you only need to install it and the instructions are in the thread that raj pointed you to: yum install fetchmail or yum info fetchmail to see if it's installed.

    Ok, then I must be very confused because instruction #17 is:

    17. Run the command setup then system services and un-tick the following services.
    Bluetooth
    Cups
    Exim (If left running will block port 25)

    Are you saying I don't have to do this? Should the instructions be updated?

    And what about this mysterious message in the last post to the thread:

    We have released a RHEL 5 version of the 4.5.6 branch.

    Please use those builds.

    -closing due to deprecation

    (but there is no link to follow)

    Where should I go to find the new thread?

    Again, any help is greatly appreciated.

    Not as confuse as I am. You last question was about configuring fetchmail, I've answered that.

    I didn't say anything about not following this instruction. You should disable any other mail server on the system and any other unnecessary services.

    There's nothing mysterious about the message, those instructions were written for the 4.5.x branch of Zimbra we are now up to 5.0.8. There is no new thread, this is a user forum, nobody has written a complete 'how-to' for the 5.x branch. There are details in the forums and wiki about installing on CentOS5 64bit if you search for them.
