    Default Experiences so far with Ubuntu 6.06 LTS x86_64 (BETA)

    Hi,

    Since I'm so happy with the 64 bit Ubuntu build of Zimbra I thought I would share my experiences with it so far.

    Installation gave the error message:

    Can't locate Tie/Hash.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /opt/zimbra/z.......

    Code:
    apt-get install libtie-ixhash-perl
    fixed this.

    Incoming mail did not get delivered to the users' inbox, instead they ended up in the deferred queue. The error message in /var/log/mail.log was:

    451 4.5.0 Error in processing, id=16530-01, parts_decode_ext FAILED: Unix utility file(1) not available, but is needed at (eval 85) line 113. (in reply to end of DATA command))

    Code:
    apt-get install file
    and restarting zimbra fixed this.

    So tip for improvement: Check for existence of packages libtie-ixhash-perl and file and don't proceed installation unless they are installed.

    Another tip is to automatically install the missing dependencies.
    If that's not possible, it would be helpful if the message containing the names of the missing packages were separated by spaces so that they are easy targets for double-click-copy and paste.

    regards Bart.

    How did you install your UBUNTU6_64 box? Both of these were present for me at installation. We base our builds off of using the CD/DVD ISO default installs as the base for prerequisites.

    I installed Zimbra in a XEN 3.1 vm.

    But how did you install it in the VM? From an ISO image? debbootstrap? etc.

    And I'd be leery of using Xen.

    Now now IMHO no problems with Xen especially if you use 3.2 as there were issues with running X86 under X86_64. Certainly blows the socks of VMware

    So you know for a fact that the problems with Xen using BDB assembly level mutexes are fixed in Xen 3.2? Can you please point me at the relevant bug#, release note, etc?

    Thanks.

    everybodies experiences of VM technologies are different. one may suit one person but not another. that was my view I was trying to express. your usage is probably more indepth, but so far I have had no issues. sorry, going off topic, apologies.

    Ok, so this is already known not to meet the baseline installation requirements. I'd just make sure your bootstrap process installs the bits you noted in the future.

    I'm very glad to hear that other than that, UBUNTU6_64 is working well for you.

    I forgot to mention that /var/log/zimbra.log, /var/log/mail.log, /var/log/mail.info, and /var/log/syslog all showed the following message:

    zimbra.log:Mar 27 23:19:22 mail postfix/postfix-script[17973]: warning: not owned by root: /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.4.3.4z/conf/main.cf

    Code:
    chown root:root /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.4.3.4z/conf/main.cf
    got rid of it.

    Also, I must say that my zimbra server is currently behaving very strange, it shows a logon page without formatting. I will look into it and keep you posted.

    regards Bart.
