    FC6 isn't a supported package but you could always contribute to the how-to yourself or search the forums.

    Hi-
    We defenetly plan on adding Fedora Core 6. We try to only keep two FC versions out at the same time, so we will probably fade out FC 4 support when we fade in FC6 support.

    The problem is that *MANY* users use FC4.

    Default mini how-to

    I just completed installing on Fedora Core 6 and it was fairly painless using the quick install guide.

    Points to look for;
    - make sure the /etc/hosts file doesn't have IPV6 info for localhost
    - make sure the /etc/sudoers does not restrict to TTY only

    otherwise it worked fine.

    Cheers
    Ric

    Wink My story...

    Zimbra require 10GB free disk space for software and logs (you can't install zimbra if it found less than 6GB for /opt/zimbra. Error message appear).

    Installation on Fedora 6:

    - Create partitions, manual suggest a /boot partition (100MB), a swap partition set to twice the size of the ram and a / partition set with remaining disk space size (I suggest 10 or more GB)

    - Network configuration:
    specify the fully qualified hostname -> yourservername.yourdomain.com
    I choose to uncheck ipv6

    - Type of installation: I choose WEB Server, anyway you don't need to install mysql, tomcat, ldap. Zimbra installs in /opt/zimbra its ldap, mysql, ....
    You only needs named for dns resolution.

    After reboot:

    - Disable Firewall and SELinux

    - From terminal install this package. You find it on your installation dvd/cd

    # rpm -Uivh compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-61

    - From terminal:

    # chkconfig sendmail off
    # service sendmail stop
    # service postfix stop
    # chkconfig postfix off

    - Edit /etc/host, it should look like:

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost ...
    ::1 yourservername.yourdomain.com ...

    - Edit /etc/sudoers and comment the line: Defaults requiretty
    Should look: # Defaults requiretty
    (Well I need to understand better this option function)

    - Configure DNS see [SOLVED] DNS in a nutshell

    - Copy zcs-4.5.1_GA_660.FC5.tgz to /root or another folder.

    - Untar:
    #tar -zxvf /root/zcs-4.5.1_GA_660.FC5.tgz

    - cd /root/zcs/install.sh

    - Answer questions

    - At "Main Menu"
    Select 1) and change Hostname -> yourserverhostname.yourdomain.com

    select 6) and 4) and change admin password

    If you are installing opensource edition you don't need to specify license

    type r) type a) and save configuration and go on.

    If installation complete succesfully, open your browser and go to https://youripaddress:7071/zimbraAdmin and configure mail account

    from terminal to see if everything is up and running:
    # su - zimbra
    # zmcontrol status

    If something goes wrong go to zcs folder and uninstall zimbra -> run install.sh -u then remove zcs and untar again zimbra package and reinstall

    I hope these lines help

    Any idea when this might occur? I'm currently trying to install Zimbra on a FC6 box and it's failing right up front.

    No.
    You're more than welcome to file an enhancement, and you can track it.

    What's it saying when it fails?

    ...after going thru the first part:

    You appear to be installing packages on a platform different
    than the platform for which they were built

    This platform is UNKNOWN
    Packages found: zimbra-core-4.5.1_GA_660.FC5-20070201184655.i386.rpm
    This may or may not work


    Install anyway? [N] y

    The system will be modified. Continue? [N] y

    Removing /opt/zimbra

    If you look in util/utilfunc.sh you'll find that there is a check for your FC release and 6 isn't there. Hack that up.

    I've had this error too.

    Reboot

    Uninstall your installation:

    # cd yourzcsdirectory
    # ./uninstall -u

    Remove /opt/zimbra and your zcs folder

    # rm -fr /opt/zimbra
    # rm -fr /.../zcs

    Untar again your rpm package (please check its integrity)
    # tar zxvf zcs....rpm

    And reinstall
