    Default Problem installing on Ubuntu

    Hi,

    trying to install Zimbra on Ubuntu (6.10). After some minor glitches I was able to install Zimbra on Ubuntu. During installation I got one error on the Spell module (just that there was an error and could not be installed). I skipped the Spell module and re-ran install.

    Then I got the configuration menu. I set the admin password and installed the license file. The pressed a (apply). Result:

    *** CONFIGURATION COMPLETE - press 'a' to apply
    Select from menu, or press 'a' to apply config (? - help) a
    Save configuration data to a file? [Yes]
    Save config in file: [/opt/zimbra/config.23155]

    Any ideas?

    Default Found thread with similar problem

    Hi,

    I found:
    Ubuntu Edgy: Configuration fails: No such file bss_file.c

    where it seems that there is a problem with the default shell. To quote the last posts:


    The Zimbra install scripts use 'source'. Newer versions of Ubuntu (I think Edgy was the first) use 'dash' as the shell which doesn't have 'source'.

    Change to using 'bash' and run install.sh and things should work:

    sudo rm /bin/sh
    sudo ln -s /bin/bash /bin/sh


    Is it possible to modify the install script to have this run properly on Ubuntu?

    Two thing I can think of off the top of my head are:

    1) Did you run 'apt-get update' before installing zimbra?

    2) After you installed all the required components that Zimbra looks for did you install perl?

    What components are you trying to install (All, LDAP, MTA, etc.)?

    What is the readout that you get when you start the install and it checks for curl, fetchmail, and the like?

    And that exactly solved my problem. As I was not the only one who ran into this problem, I hope the install script of Zimbra for Ubuntu can be modified to take this into account?
    As a long time unix admin, this behavior on the part of Ubuntu is CRIMINAL. /bin/sh is a baseline shell, designed to be consistent and reliable - which is one of the reasons that it's used so heavily in installers. Symlinking it to something that's not compatible is just wrong.

    This is something that you, the Ubuntu community, should take up with the maintainers of your distro.
