Hi there,

I am new to zimbra and linux in general, but I like the idea of Free (as in speech) more than anything else, so I am giving it my best. Although I think there are many issues with Linux, I believe one of the biggest is the fragmentation of distributions.

Ok, now I know it's not the right place to post my complains about linux in general so here's something very specific.

I should specify that I have uninstalled( ./install.sh -u) and reinstalled the zimbra a couple times and I end up here every time

On a openSUSE 10.1 I have the following problem:

You have the option of notifying Zimbra of your installation.
This helps us to track the uptake of the Zimbra Collaboration Suite.
The only information that will be transmitted is:
The VERSION of zcs installed (4.0.3_GA_406_UNKNOWN)
The ADMIN EMAIL ADDRESS created (admin@mail.thegabgroup.com)

I have noticed that there has been an issue with the hosts file so here's mine:


mail:/opt/zimbra/libexec # cat /etc/hosts
# special IPv6 addresses

fe00::0 ipv6-localnet

ff00::0 ipv6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ipv6-allnodes
ff02::2 ipv6-allrouters
ff02::3 ipv6-allhosts
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
72.17.201.82 mail.thegabgroup.com mail


To end this: I am trying to convince my clients to install and use Linux, including Zimbra and the LAMP stack ... but if it doesn't work ... I can't make a case, so please help me ...


thank you much,

adrian
