    Mine worked great (Zimbra OSS on openSuSE 10.2).

    You need to make sure you do a couple of things to 'prep' the installation so it will run zimbra. First, be sure you have the latest release of ZCS, and be sure to update your system BEFORE installing ZCS.

    I installed "Minimal Text Mode Only" with no extra packages except for fetchmail, cURL, libidn, GMP, compat-libstdc++. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT install a full graphical system. Runlevel 5 smokes resources, and ZCS can use all it can take. Be sure to split /opt off into its own partition (or seperate RAID array). Then follow the guide on installing ZCS on opensuse.

    Ah, the Java error is a different error it seems.

    My posting was not meant as a reproach - on the contrary. However, the complete guide posted here doesn't work - that's all I'm saying.

    I could post a full step by step 'how to' with screenshots for you if you'd like. It would be an utterly enormous post though......... (and I would need to make a new VM on my system on which to install it, but such is the beauty of Xen. . . )

    I could have written "please do so!", but at the moment I'm merely evaluating the package. It would be such a waste of your time if I decided to continue using Outlook + WebDAV...

    Maybe it's a better idea to wait until they have an official version for OpenSUSE?

    Unless you feel really compelled, that is ;-)

    I don't really have anything else better to do. All my linux servers here at work seem to be functioning well.. so I have some time to kill. I will post it on my personal blog as a private post and link it from here so I don't slaughter zimbra.com's connection with the 50 or so images i'll be putting up. Barring any serious f*ck ups by one of my users here at work, I should be able to have it posted by 1 or 2pm Eastern.

    It would be helpful if you said a bit more.

    The complete guide does work, it just doesn't work for YOU. I have done every step on my clean stock standard installed openSUSE 10.2 and have a running Zimbra server.

    Maybe the download was corrupt, or you installed other software, or tinkered with other areas inside openSUSE first.

    Let us know what special things you may have applied to your system that is outside the guide first so we can help.

    Maybe some other packages might be clashing, or other files in the core system may be missing.

    Dear Bigmudcake,

    Please see my first posting. I quote:

    Installing packages

    zimbra-core......zimbra-core-4.5.3_GA_733.SuSE10-20070228101815.i386.rpm...FAILED
    ###ERROR###

    zimbra-core-4.5.3_GA_733.SuSE10-20070228101815.i386.rpm installation failed

    Installation cancelled
    I'm not sure how I can be more specific than that.

    openSUSE is as clean as clean can be (fresh install). No other software was installed. No areas were tinkered with.

    Now, what might be an issue is that I'm running openSUSE with KDE on VMWare in Windows XP. Unfortunately I have no clean Linux machine at my disposal.

    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmshutil: line 49: Error: command not found
    Error: executing: /opt/zimbra/bin/zmlocalconfig -q -m export


    I get this error on installation and when running the majority of scripts involved.
