    Default Debian 3.1 32 bit fails installation

    Hello there. I have tried to install Zimbra 4.0.1 on Debian 32 bit in VMware.

    I keep get this errors even though I have carefully installed required packages according to the documentation.

    I really can't figure out what is missing, I think it could be some perl package but I not sure.

    I have attached a screendump to provide install outputs.

    If anyone has any idea how I can accomplish a succesful installation from here I will be happy to hear from You-

    All ideas are highly appreciated.

    Nice weekend,

    Thanks, Daniel Mersebak

    I believe you need to upgrade to the 2.6 kernel unless, of course, you already have it?

    Default Kernel 2.6.x should work - I have it

    uname -a says: 2.6.8-3-386 so I guess my kernel is compatible with Zimbra release 4.0.1 unless I have missed out a point.

    Thanks for the input, I hope to recieve more replies today.

    Best regards, Daniel Mersebak

    Sorry, not really too hot on debian. Which release/version of perl do you have installed?
    Regards

    It's OK I've just seen it in your screen dump. Do you actually have the missing file on your system? Do you also have correct DNS records set-up for your Zimbra server?
    Regards

    Default DNS related perl error ???

    Phoenix I appreciate Your help very much, and the first thing I will do is to check up my DNS settings.

    But I must admit I find it really hard to believe this error in any way can be related to DNS settings.

    I will return ASAP with my experience configurring the DNS according to the documentation.

    Thanks again, Daniel Mersebak

    Yes, I would agree that it's nothing to do with DNS - that was just an additional question. The other question about the missing file was more important.

    Getopt::Std is part of core perl libs. If it can't find it, it either points to a borked perl install or else zimbra isn't finding the system libs.

    do 'perl -v' and make sure the bit after 'built for' is included in the PERLLIB var in /opt/zimbra/.bashrc.

    Default Found a solution

    I had this exact problem with a fresh install of Ubuntu 6.06.1 server and zcs-4.0.2_GA_362.UBUNTU6.tgz. Getopt::Std died with the Can't locate Getopt/Std.pm in @INC error.

    Although the Ubuntu default install had perl running (This is perl, v5.8.7 built for i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi), Std.pm didn't exist on my system anywhere.

    I ran apt-get install perl and got this:

    Code:
    The following extra packages will be installed:
      perl-modules
    Now there exists: ./usr/share/perl/5.8.7/Getopt/Std.pm

    Re ran zcs ./install.sh and got past that point. Still not finished with the install, but I have moved beyond that error.

    wow, if the ubuntu install didn't include the core perl modules, i'd say that was either an installer error or ubuntu bug, without perl is bugger all good..

    thanks for reporting this workaround, very useful for ubuntu goers out there i'm sure.
