    Will a developer build for version 5 be available for Debian?

    Default Zimbra on Debian (Lenny)

    Thanks for this excellent script. It seems to work fine on Lenny (Debian Test) as well.

    Default Warning!

    Warning - upgrading from 5.0b3 to 5.0rc1 using the new debian4 binary resulted in lots of problems, both errors during the install and afterwards. Do not attempt to upgrade without taking backups first!

    Yeah, I have noticed this, I'm gonna spend a little time looking into it and then I may just give up and revert to a backup. Currently I cant log into mail, getting an error "A network service error occured (zclient/io)" is this what you saw?

    exactly yes. I was on 5.0b3 ubuntu6 build. I need to upgrade this so I'll find a way round it when I can get some downtime on the box.

    From a conversation with jholder, it looks firmly like I was getting this error due to the java engine failing, almost certainly due to insufficient memory. I'll be sticking to testing b3 for a little while longer while I search for hardware, but if you have plenty of ram on your rig and the errors are the same, there may be an issue somewhere.

    That said, I think there are quite a lot of debian 3.1 installs on debian 4.0, so we should be seeing more reports of a problem.

    Right, I downloaded the ubuntu6 version and used the /etc/debian_version and util/utilfunc.sh hack as per usual, and upgraded perfectly from 5.0b3 to 5.0rc1 on debian4. Looks like either the debian4 release has issues, or the upgrade from a hacked version has issues.

    Hi guys,

    I'M trying to upgrade my zimbra install with package 4.5.10 but I'm unable to do it. Here is what i get.

    I'm running Debian Etch.
    In /etc/debian_version I have 4.0

    The install starts but then fails.

    Here is the output:

    Code:
    ./install.sh

    Exiting...
    In the file zcs/util/utilfunc.sh, there is a part wher it checks for debian 4.0 so 4.0 seems to be supported by the installer in version 4.5.10, see here:

    Code:
    getPlatformVars() {
      PLATFORM=`bin/get_plat_tag.sh`
      if [ $PLATFORM = "DEBIAN3.1" -o $PLATFORM = "UBUNTU6" -o $PLATFORM = "DEBIAN4.0" ]; then
        PACKAGEINST='dpkg -i'
        PACKAGERM='dpkg --purge'
        PACKAGEQUERY='dpkg -s'
        PACKAGEEXT='deb'
        PREREQ_PACKAGES="sudo libidn11 curl fetchmail libgmp3 libxml2 libstdc++6 openssl"
        if [ $PLATFORM = "UBUNTU6" ]; then
          PREREQ_PACKAGES="sudo libidn11 curl fetchmail libpcre3 libgmp3c2 libexpat1 libxml2 libstdc++6 libstdc++5 openssl"
        fi
        if [ $PLATFORM = "DEBIAN4.0" ]; then
          PREREQ_PACKAGES="sudo libidn11 curl fetchmail libgmp3c2 libxml2 libstdc++6 openssl"
        fi
    But still the upgrade fails saying I'm trying:

    Code:
    Found zimbra-core
    Error: attempting to install i386 packages on a unknown OS.
    Exiting...
    Any idea?

    Thanx!

    No. Debian 4.0 is not supported - there are fragments of code for it in 4.5.x branch that are very incomplete and broken, do not attempt to use it as debian 4 installer - continue to use 3.1 in /etc/debian_version or use ubuntu package, one of the established hacks!

    Ok,

    But can you tell me if zimbra 5.0 will support Debian 4.0?

    Thanx!
