    Default Trying to install on Debian Lenny 5.0.4

    I gave up on installing using Turnkey Zimbra package. Not able to get the certificates for SSL updated... as posted here:
    Turnkey Zimbra installation



    And following the instructions here:
    GNR on Debian Lenny - Zimbra :: Wiki

    But I have a problem in the "Installing dependencies" section. When running the following command:
    aptitude install sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-jre sun-java5-jdk sun-java5-jre

    I get this result:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Reading extended state information
    Initializing package states... Done
    Writing extended state information... Done

    Reading extended state information
    Initializing package states... Done
    Reading task descriptions... Done


    So I went to the Synaptic Package Manager of Debian and looked for the string "java" and found the following packages:
    - openjdk-6-jdk
    - openjdk-6-jre
    - openjdk-6-jre-headless
    - openjdk-6-jre-lib
    which I installed.

    Everything else in the "Install dependencies" ran through with no errors.

    Now the next section in the instructions is to create a tarball of Java... I went to the directory:
    cd /usr/lib/jvm

    But ls reports this:
    drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 2010-04-21 22:11 java-1.5.0-gcj-4.3-1.5.0.0
    drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 4096 2010-04-22 07:46 java-6-openjdk
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 26 2010-04-21 22:11 java-gcj -> java-1.5.0-gcj-4.3-1.5.0.0

    So I cannot reproduce the same stuff...

    Questions:
    - Does it matter? should I go ahead and create a tarball with openjdk-6-jdk and not worry about the fact that it's not the same package?
    - Should I forget about creating a tarball and proceed with the installation of Zimbra?

    I've downloaded both the GNR605 and GNR606 locally...

    I have another question: Do I need to worry about what is already installed (things like Exim4) by the basic installation of Debian or the installation script of Zimbra will detect that and replace with Postfix on its own?

    You need to disable Exim if it has been installed. Why are you building from source ?

    I do not mind installing in any way.

    Do you have another procedure to propose?

    Hello,

    Thank's for the quick answer.

    It's a little short on details, though. I'll download this to a directory on my Debian Linux and then what? Put it at the root directory and untar it?

    Where should I be (which point in the directory structure before I issue the untar command? Does it contain an installation script to run and I should untar it in a /home/myuser directory? (That's what I'll try first).

    Thank's for your help, if I make it this time, I'll owe you a bunch, I've been trying to install for a while now...

    I went through the installation process, fixed the dependencies problem, running the install.sh script, it's at "Starting Servers..."

    Java is eating up all the CPU and it's been there for the last 10 minutes...

    Is it the fact that I have a Pentium II 500MHz that's making it slow? Do I need to run it on a faster machine?

    Default Difficulties with certificates

    OK, I've installed on Debian Lenny.



    I am able to login to the administration console but I get an error message before the login screen: certificates are invalid (for another server). I tried getting new certificates but I get an error message when I try to get new self-signed certificates. When I try to view them I also get an error.

    I attached two images of the errors.

    It seems like I do not have a certificate to start with. The message mentions that /opt/zimbra/.ssh/zimbra_identity is missing.

    I don't remember getting any error message during the install script. Did I miss it?

    Anyway, how do I create a zimbra_identity?

    This image means trouble...

    Hummm, even a reboot still show that...

    What have I done wrong?

    How do I diagnose?
