    Default Install onto Suse 10.1

    As Suse 10.1 is stable now (or seems to be) I thought I'd use that, instead of the older 10.0 when I decided to make a zimbra installation on a server at home.

    However, it fails in the installall script, now after trying in the past with FC5 I'm not too surprised about this, but perhaps someone could offer assistance with getting it to work?

    This is what happens during install:

    Anything in the install log?

    I may be looking at the wrong log file but the file /var/log/zimbra.log is zero bytes in size.

    Is there something else I should be checking?

    The install log should be tmp/install.log. with a number at the end for different installs, have a look in that directory.

    Ah! Ok, I've found that file and had a read, it seems to be complaining about the libssl library. Suse 10.1 seems to install openssl package 0.9.8a which contains libssl.so.0.9.8

    So, I had similar problems when I tried installing on FC5, it there an easy way around it? I assume this package could be removed and replaced with an older version, but coming from a primarily windows background, I'm a fan of newer is better, and older versions are less secure.

    I'd rather run zimbra on suse 10.1 than 10.0, as I 'feel' that 10.1 is more secure (please understand, I base this on nothing technical)

    The question I'm really asking I suppose, is will an updated package designed for suse 10.1 or FC5 be on the cards any time soon?

    Thanks.

    What exactly is it complaining about with the libssl library? I don't really know what the release scheule is for Zimbra but they are working on an FC5 version available and as SuSE 10.1 now released I guess that won't be far behind. If this server is just for Zimbra, why don't you use something like CentOS 4.3 as it's binay compatible with RHEL4 and free.

    The install log file is posted below. I may try CentOS again, I've looked at it briefly in the past but I just feel more 'comfortable' with Suse.

    From that log it looks like the LDAP install failed, have a look at the troubleshooting page in the wiki. It's often caused by trying to install several times. Post again after you've been through those steps.

    Install compact-openssl_0.9.7 and Zimbra will be happy

    Thanks all, I've managed to install openssl 0.9.7. I tried to remove the newer version first but the package manager YAST complained far too much about other programs that depended on it, so I ended up downloading an rpm designed for suse 9 and did a forced installation. With that on, I was able to install (once I remembered to stop and disable the existing postfix)

    Is there a reason why the zimbra installation cannot ask if you want to kill postfix and do it for you? It seems to be a common part of most linux installations and it may make the installation a little smoother?

    Anyway, back on topic, Zimbra 3.1.1 does indeed work on Suse10.1, once the older ssl package is installed.

    Thanks for the help
