    Cool Installed 5.0.6 Network Edition on Debian Etch

    Just thought I'd let you all know that I've just installed the Network Edition of Zimbra on Debian Etch.

    I used the Ubuntu version, with the manual overide switch...

    ./install.sh --platform-override


    Had to apt-get a couple of bits that the installer said was missing, and stop exim4 first, but all was installed cleanly.

    Release 5.0.6_GA_2313.UBUNTU6 DEBIAN4.0 NETWORK edition

    Well done, it's a shame you've just invalidated your Zimbra support. You'll have a much better experience if you install Zimbra NE on a supported platform.

    AFAIK, Ubuntu is just a fork of Debian.

    If that is the case, what are the main differences?

    Not a problem...

    ZCS Network Starter Edition is an annual subscription for software and updates only; it does NOT include Zimbra Support, though we have an excellent community to assist you!

    Ah, you didn't say that first time round. In that case it's just well done.

    The real shame here is that Zimbra refuses to deliver Debian builds - Debian being one of the most stable Linux distro's out there. Ubuntu simply does not see the level of testing and stability you can achieve with Debian.

    It is even more of a shame that Zimbra takes on the attitude of any other clueless technology provider: "If the version numbers don't match, we will invalidate your support" - getting away from this kind of old fashioned, ridiculous and stupid attitude is why a lot people will select open source over closed source. Where, now, is my compelling argument to not use Exchange?

    Shame on you Zimbra

    I'm also super dissappointed its not Debian Supported it might be the difference between going for the network edition vs the starter or open source edition,

    I think is a shame too not having a network build for Debian. Debian just works and is much more stable than all the distros I know. For example, Ubuntu 8.04 LTS comes with a serious bug (unsolved) that can compromise your installations.. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/120375
