    [QUOTE=AndyWas;200900]Looks like the same problem occurs on Fedora 14 now... I got ZCS 6 installed recently on Fedora 13 x86_64 using package zcs-6.0.8_GA_2661.F11_64.20100820041438. I have just upgraded to FC14, and when I try tostart ZCS services I get this Perl-related message:-
    Code:
    [zimbra@localhost ~]$ zmcontrol start
    Assertion ((svtype)((_svi)->sv_flags & 0xff)) >= SVt_PV failed: file "UUID.c", line 368 at /opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib/Zimbra/Mon/Logger.pm line 37.
    Compilation failed in require at /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcontrol line 27.
    BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcontrol line 27.
    If I run the install script again, after finding the previous installation and prerequisites, I get another Perl error:-
    Code:
    Assertion ((svtype)((_svi)->sv_flags & 0xff)) >= SVt_PV failed: file "UUID.c", line 368 at /opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib/Zimbra/Mon/Logger.pm line 37.
    Compilation failed in require at bin/zmdbintegrityreport line 19.
    BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at bin/zmdbintegrityreport line 19.
    I worked around this by downloading and compiling a newer version of Data::UUID (version 1.217):

    1) Download the new package from this this page: Data::UUID - search.cpan.org (Data-UUID-1.217.tar.gz)

    2) untar/ungzip the package/cd to the directory

    3) Compile the module
    perl Makefile.PL
    make
    make test

    4) make backups of the old UUID files
    mv /opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/Data/UUID/UUID.bs /opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/Data/UUID/UUID.bs.old
    mv /opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib/i386-linux-thread-multi/Data/UUID.pm /opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib/i386-linux-thread-multi/Data/UUID.pm.old
    mv /opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/Data/UUID/UUID.so /opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/Data/UUID/UUID.so.old

    5) make a shared object out of the UUID.o file:

    gcc UUID.o -shared -o UUID.so

    6) copy your new file versions into place:
    cp ~/dev/Data-UUID-1.217/UUID.bs /opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/Data/UUID/UUID.bs
    cp ~/dev/Data-UUID-1.217/UUID.pm /opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib/i386-linux-thread-multi/Data/UUID.pm
    cp ~/dev/Data-UUID-1.217/UUID.so /opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/Data/UUID/UUID.so

    7) Restart Zimbra and watch as the scripts that depend on the UUID perl dependency now run without error.

    @fooz: Thanks for this, I followed your procedure and now Perl works fine with Zimbra. I also had apply a load of commands like
    Code:
    chcon -t execmem_exec_t '/usr/local/opt/zimbra/bin/postconf'
    until I got a clean startup without any SELinux errors, had to use trial & error and each time I would have to see which file was causing the problem. However that is a consequence of unsupported OS I guess...

    @phoenix: I realize Fedora is not officially supported for Zimbra but I am runnin stock packages, it is not like I am on Rawhide or building a nightly kernel... Also Fedora is pretty close to RHEL which must be a common platform choice? Anyway, with a little bit of effort it can be done...

    Yes, there are people that have installed Zimbra on openSUSE and there are details all over the forums on how to do it. I would, however, suggest that if you're serious about running a reliable mail platform you should install Zimbra on a supported distribution.

    As mentioned in this thread, the problem is that your version of perl is different than the one used by Zimbra - try the solution in post #2.

    That's the reason you should install Zimbra on a supported platform, there'll be no nasty surprises.

    The simple answer to that, and the reason it was dropped, is because there's not enough demand (i.e. downloads) for openSUSE it's also more cost effective to support a limited number of distributions.

    My personal view is that a 'consumer' distribution isn't a suitable long term platform for a mail server especially if your company relies on it - there are more suitable platforms. You may get it to work on openSUSE but you're on your own as far as fixing any problems about installing it or any breakages when you update openSUSE. Don't misunderstand me, I think openSUSE is a fantastic distribution and I've used it for years on all my workstations and laptops and I also recommend it to anyone who'll listen but I use CentOS on all my servers.
    Regards
