    Default Zimbra and FC6

    Hi,

    Will Zimbra install on Fedore Core 6? If not, when will a FC6 version be available?

    Thanks
    -Charles

    Welcome to the forums.

    The quick answer is, try it. As you've seen, there isn't a build for FC6 yet but I guess there will be sometime - timetables are an unknown quantity with new O/S releases.
    Regards

    Hi Phoenix,

    I took your advice and attempted with an installation. Downloaded Zimbra for FC5 and the first installation failed during LDAP Initalization. After poking around, it seems FC6 has added more restrictions to sudo. The zimbra installation log shows

    --
    sudo: sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo
    ERROR - failed to start slapd
    --

    {ZIMBRA_HOME}/bin/ldap start tries to execute sudo ...


    And sure enough, /etc/sudoers has

    --
    Defaults requiretty
    --

    Quick solution was to comment out this requirement

    #Default requiretty

    and reinstall. That solve the installation and all is good. However, a better approach would be to use su -l zimbra -c '....' in the start scripts.

    Thanks Charles,
    Would you mind putting that in the wiki?

    Thumbs up

    This worked perfectly to solve this. I'm running Fedora 7 x86 on inside a Qemu VM, and commenting that out allowed slapd to start, no problem, whereas before it was spitting the tty error.
