    Default sudo....missing error when installing

    I am trying to install Zimbra for the first time and get the following error:
    ----------------
    Checking for prerequisites...
    NPTL...FOUND
    sudo...MISSING
    libidn...FOUND libidn-0.5.6-1
    curl...FOUND curl-7.12.1-3
    fetchmail...FOUND fetchmail-6.2.5-6
    gmp...FOUND gmp-4.1.4-3
    /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5...FOUND

    ###ERROR###

    One or more prerequisite packages are missing.
    Please install them before running this installer.

    Installation cancelled.
    -------------

    I do have sudo installed on my linux machine.

    Any ideas as to what may be causing this error?

    Thanks!

    What OS are you installing on? What version of Zimbra re you using?

    I am installing the Zimbra Network edition on Red Hat Linux Rel 4.

    Thanks.

    What does 'which sudo' return? What type of RH install did you do minimal?

    1. which sudo returns:

    /usr/local/bin/sudo

    2. I am installing on a box that had Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 already installed on it, so I'm not sure if it was a minimal install.

    Thanks for your help.

    We just check that the sudo pkg is installed. Try this:

    up2date -i sudo

    Hi there

    Has anyone been able to solve that problem meanwhile?
    I desperately try to install zimbra on a SuSE 9.3, HAVE sudo installed but also receive a "sudo...missing".

    Sudo was missing in the first place. I downloaded the sources, compiled, installed and finally updated PATH in /etc/profile.

    I have NOT configured sudo via /usr/local/sbin/visudo

    My conclusion of zimbra so far is: Kids, don't try this at home! Let hardcore UNIX/Linux sys-admins do the job. They are called profs for a reason.

    I highly appreciate any responses...

    Cheers

    The whole suite of tools used by Zimbra is definitely not for kids. LDAP, TOMCAT ARE complex pieces of software. But also the other components require knowledge. Anyone running a mailserver on the Internet should know what's going on. Spam would be a lot less of a problem if all mailservers on the Internet would be properly administered. So yeah, play along, but be sure to have proper knowledge in place when moving online.

    Just to make the problem clear once more:

    --> /var/zcs # sudo
    usage: sudo -K | -L | -V | -h | -k | -l | -v
    usage: sudo [-HPSb] [-p prompt] [-u username|#uid]
    { -e file [...] | -i | -s | }


    Means, I have successfully installed sudo, *it seems*

    Still there is:

    Checking for prerequisites...
    NPTL...FOUND
    sudo...MISSING


    By the way, installing fetchmail wasn't a problem. But I cannot become an expert on every software issue that crosses my way. So if anyone knows what to do to make the install process realize sudo IS installed, please give me a hint.

    huge thanks...

    Default sudo location

    The regular location of sudo is in /usr/bin and not /usr/local/bin. This looks like a manual install to me. You could try to link sudo as a workaround on your system like:

    Code:
    ln -s /usr/bin/sudo /usr/local/bin/sudo
    I would not recommend this as a standard trick. Another alternative could be to set the $PATH variable to include /usr/local/bin before you start the install script.
