    It's in the following attachment, gzipped:
    zdesktop.log.5000.txt.gz

    RMMM, that's already a rotated file. please find the earliest zdesktop.log.xxx and provide the first 5000 lines of that.

    I don't know which was the deciding factor but I'm all set now.
    That's good to know. But I doubt that httpd.conf has anything to do with it. If you delete the Computer Name again, will you be able to see the issue again?

    Here's the first 5000 lines of the earliest log file:
    zdesktop.log.2008-10-19.5000.gz

    It's complaining about missing classes. Do you have <install>/jetty/common/lib/activation.jar?

    That file is present.

    I didn't install in the default location. I used /Users/robert/bin/Zimbra as the
    install directory. Is it possible Zimbra is looking in its default install location for some of the files?

    I can confirm a similar issue which also affects installation.

    I'm using a MacBook Pro (2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo) and Mac OS X 10.5.5.

    Using Java Preferences I had set the preferred Java applet and application versions to Java SE 6 64-bit. In terminal when I do java -version I get

    java version "1.6.0_07"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_07-b06-153)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.6.0_07-b06-57, mixed mode)

    When I launched Zimbra Desktop (0_90_build_1278_macos_intel) it sat around for a while (the red dots) before putting up a dialog box that says "[JavaScript Application] Couldn't start Yahoo! Zimbra Desktop server, giving up."

    Next I tried to install zdesktop_0_91_build_1344_macos_intel and after selecting English as my language, I got a dialog box that says ""zimbra desktop requires intel-based mac". (Note: I haven't been able to reproduce this after restoring defaults in Java Preferences and then setting 1.6 to preferred again. Perhaps restarting the Mac would do the trick.)

    After finding this thread I used Java Preferences to Restore Defaults. java -version yields

    java version "1.5.0_16"
    Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_16-b06-284)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_16-133, mixed mode, sharing)

    I can now launch the 0.9 desktop application.

    When I launch the 0.91 installer, it works normally and 0.91 also launches normally.

    I would report this as a bug but I'm not sure exactly where to do so...the bugzilla form seems oriented to server issues. If anyone else reports this as a bug please post the number to this thread so I can add my report.

    Default Weekly re-install

    It's averaging a weekly-re-install for me (not counting today, I last re-installed four days ago). This is getting to be a real pain.

    Are there any explanations forthcoming?
