    Default [SOLVED] Compatibility with latest Ubuntu 9.x releases

    We would like to use Zimbra Collaboration Suite 6 on Ubuntu 9.10. Currently there is a version of Zimbra for up to Ubuntu 8.04 LTS only.

    Does Zimbra have plans to provide a download for 9.04 or 9.10?

    The reason it is a problem for us is because 8.04 does not work properly on our proposed hardware and although I'd readily compromise by trying to resolve that specific issue, we lack the resources and budget for working on that.

    Does anyone here have some alternative helpful ideas?

    The place to check would be bugzilla.

    I think Zimbra'll not support Ubuntu 9.04 ( and I think it should do that, too)
    Zimbra'll only support Ubuntu LTS version, such as: 8.04 LTS or 10.04 LTS
    LTS is Long Time Support

    Yes, I was beginning to draw the same conclusion myself. I'm sorry to find this to be the case though, as Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10 have proved very successful with our hardware, and 8.04 has been nothing but trouble. Linux software seems to me to be very specific about which version of the host O/S it requires. I'm beginning to think that Windows and Mailtraq will do the job simply and quickly without all the messing around that Linux requires. Thanks for your help though, dalmate.

    You would have found out what was supported and when the release target is if you'd followed the link I gave you.

    a. Have you tried 8.04.4
    You should be aware the new CD's are spun up every six months in time with the point releases. There's new hardware support in those, so they may work better with your hardware. If you have a server from a major hardware vendor then it should work, enter your bug in Launchpad if it doesn't.

    b. Run 9.10 with KVM virtualization of 8.04
    If you cannot get the hardware to work with 8.04 then you can run 9.10 and virtualize 8.04 with KVM. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/KVM

    Well, that's very useful to know - I didn't realise that but in fact you've just explained something that I noticed today and that is how the Ubuntu Server download from a couple of days ago actually says 8.04.4. Learn something every day! Thanks.

    - Does anyone installed the 6.0.6.1 on Ubuntu 10.4 ?
