    Default Zimbra Debian Support

    For all of you who voted for debian either here or here can now try our first Debian build.

    http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...kage_id=172045

    Looking forward to your feedback.


    UPDATE: Debian is now part of our released builds. You can download them here:

    Are there install notes for this build somewhere? The install script is reporting missing packages, although I have all of the pre-reqs installed.

    It was reporting all the prereqs missing. I figured out why.

    Full disclosure: I'm installing this on Ubuntu, not debian. To get around some of the install script's checks without too much hackery, I just changed a few things in utilfunc.sh (changed package name on line 939 to libgmpxx3 instead of libgmp3) and get_plat_tag.sh (commented out the checks for "3.1" in /etc/debian_version).

    I know this is supposed to be for Debian, not Ubuntu, but I'm trying to see if I can't get it to work, for research purposes.

    So I got a little further, and the install script found the packages it needed. But now when it gets to the configuration part, none of the services will start. Here's the output I'm getting:

    Checking ldap on :389...FAILED
    I get no other messages, and the setup log is empty. My next step will be to try strace.

    Any other suggestions?

    Default ubuntu

    it's failing in the menu, right? Can't contact ldap?

    It only attempts to contact ldap if it thinks that it should be running, on a different host.

    If your hostname (as configured in the menu) matches your ldap server's hostname (also as configured in the menu) it should figure, rightly, that this is the ldap host, and ldap isn't set up yet.

    Is that how you're configured?

    Ok, I changed both the hostname and the ldap server hostname to "localhost" and it got further. But there seems to be some further issues with the difference between how debian and ubuntu treat su/sudo. It seems everytime the install script references "su < comman >" I get a permission error:

    -su: /opt/zimbra/bin/zmlocalconfig: Permission denied
    -su: /opt/zimbra/bin/zmlocalconfig: Permission denied

    After inspecting the files at /opt/zimbra, most of them appear to be owned by my ubuntu administrative user, not the zimbra user.

    Default Ubuntu

    I know absolutely nothing about ubuntu.

    How does it relate to debian as far as packaging goes?

    What version of dpkg does it have?

    It sounds like either the package install isn't setting the ownership/permissions correctly (if dpkg does that - don't really remember) and the fixperms.sh script is failing.

    Is the zimbra user getting created?

    Default Ubuntu

    And how is it possible that after all the votes for Debian, the only forum traffic about the debian build is that it doesn't work on Ubuntu?

    Debian folks - did you install it? Does it work? What do you like? What do you hate (aside from download size). What needs fixing?

    marmac and zimbra, THANK YOU for releasing debian installer! download size is fine for me, i was getting fed up of building cvs releases!

    unfortunately the upgrade from m4_35 seems to have gone a little wrong - none of my user accounts or admin accounts seem to work. will restore from backup and try again now.

    Default user accounts not working

    None of your accounts work? That's not promising.

    What does not working really mean? Can't log in? Can't receive email?
