    Default Install from SVN to FC5 on PPC

    Hello. This is my first post but I've been anxiously waiting to install Zimbra for about 4 months now.

    I've picked up a Kurobox (which is a small PPC box) and got it running FC5. It has Apache2 and most other things available for FC5 PPC.

    It'd be great to get a copy of Zimbra running on it but I can't work out how. Have managed to download it all from SVN (which was a first for me). There is now one empty branch directory and another named trunk. Not sure what to do from there though. Using Yum I've installed Tomcat and the box already had PHP, MySQL etc.

    Would someone please explain how to get it running? There doesn't seem to be any pre-built RPMs for PPC other than Mac. Greatly appreciated.

    The link pointed by you states that Kurobox runs 266 MHz PowerPC processor and has 128 MB RAM. This is significantly less than what is required.

    I hope you have looked at: http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?tit...cking_Articles

    Default Yes

    I realise that the specs of the Kurobox are a fair whack below the recommended specs. It's only for a home installation with 3 or 4 users and would like to give it a try anyway.

    As for the hack documents - yes I've read through them all. At the moment I'm attempting to follow the build_cvs_howto.txt in ZimbraServer/doc

    Gotten stuck near the top at:

    Code:
    cd ../amavisd
    wget http://www.ijs.si/software/amavisd/amavisd-new-2.3.3.tar.gz
    tar xzf amavisd-new-2.3.3.tar.gz
    cd amavisd-new-2.3.3
    patch -p0 < ../amavisd.2.3.3.patch
    
    mkdir ../snmp
    get net-snmp-5.1.2.tar.gz
    tar xzf net-snmp-5.1.2.tar.gz
    cd net-snmp-5.1.2
    ./configure --prefix=/opt/zimbra/snmp-5.1.2
    make
    make install
    cd /opt/zimbra
    tar czf snmp-5.1.2.tar.gz snmp-5.1.2
    mv snmp-5.1.2.tar.gz CVSROOT/ThirdParty/snmp
    I'm in the amavisd-new-2.3.3 directory, applied the patch and run the mkdir command as per the next line. However there is no net-snmp file to 'get'. I'm going to assume it means to find a copy on the net and proceed from there (which is what I'm about to do after making this post).

    For the last 5 hours I've been trying to find rpm versions, reading forums and attempting to get my head around svn and installing from source. Been a bit spoilt with SuSe and YaST for the last couple of years and never really had the need. Thanks for any help.

    Edit: Am also using the following guide in conjunction with the cvs howto text file.

    Edit 2: spelling

    I never really compiled this from source myself.

    However, one or more posts on the forums will suggest depriving yourself of logger, antivirus and antispam to run ZCS on a low spec machine.

    All the best!

    If that really is the memory on your system then you'll be doomed to failure however many users it's for.

    Fear not!

    The model I own has a whopping 256MB. Going to give it a go regardless. At the moment it's running TorrentFlux, Webmin, giFTd, MediaWiki & Gallery2 about on par to the PIII 1.13Ghz Dell laptop that it replaced.

    Same comment for that spec as well, I'm afraid.

    It'd be un-Australian to give up now. Going to fight the good fight until it's done.

    As a back up plan I can accept running v4 within a vmware machine on the Dell laptop (which has 1GB RAM) but the whole reason it got replaced is because the fans on it are making too much noise these days. Resorting to using it again would be 2 steps forward, 1 step back.

    Am up to compiling aspell now anyway.

    Hope you succeed.

    And if you do let us know. Perhaps, I will consider buying the Kuro Box.

    BTW, It looks really cool.
