    Lightbulb Fedora Core 4 how-to

    To install on Fedora Core 4, follow these simple instructions:

    Perform a FC4 install making sure to do the following:
    • select no firewall
    • select no SELinux
    • select custom installation
    • in package selection, select minimum install


    after you boot into FC4 for the first time, log in as root and perform the following:
    • yum update
    • ln -s /lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.7f /lib/libcrypto.so.4
    • ln -s /lib/libssl.so.0.9.7f /lib/libssl.so.4
    • vi /etc/hosts
      make sure the first non-comment line is:
      127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    • yum install libidn
    • yum install curl
    • yum install fetchmail
    • yum install gmp
    • yum install elinks
    • yum install compat-db # <-UPDATED, see footnote 1
    • chkconfig sendmail off
    • service sendmail stop



    use /usr/bin/links (a text browser) to download the FC3 zimbra rpm from www.zimbra.com

    extract the .tgz archive
    cd into zcs
    run install.sh

    Everything should go smoothly.

    ------------------------------

    As promised, here are some iptables entries. Keep in mind, these in no way fully protect your system, but should help a bit. These rules will allow remote ssh, http, https, smtp, and remote administration via zimbra interface. Please be aware, your mileage may vary.

    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 443 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 25 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 7070 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 7071 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 7075 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 7443 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -s YOUR.INTERFACE.IP.HERE -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -s 127.0.0.1 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -p icmp -m icmp --icmp-type 255 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    footnotes:
    1 - There is a compatibility issue with the libdb version in FC4. What you must do is downgrade the libdb to the suitable level -or- provide backward compatibility through the compat package.

    Thank you! I started to install, but was worried about hosing my existing setup. Maybe I will give it another try now!

    No problem:

    # extract(x) the compressed(z) file(f) archive
    tar -xzf zcs.tgz
    # change directory into zcs
    cd zcs
    # run install.sh from the present working directory (./)
    ./install.sh



    Everything should go smoothly.

    Default top

    run the command "top" - which process is listed as using the entire CPU?

    Angry "unicode_start" process

    well, followed all the above steps, on FC4. After "saving config" notice the local configuration starts but never ends: I've got 3000 processes of
    "unicode_start" and keep growing... What the heck!
    Any hints?

    I have seen this when installing without editing the /etc/hosts file properly, and also when zimbra is unable to 'find' itself.

    I have seen this before. Honestly, I'm not sure what causes it. However, I do know that several threads start up with zimbra, and that I have seen the startup take nearly ten minutes on some systems. You may (ack can't believe I am saying this) want to restart the system and insure that all services come up properly. It will take a while to start - don't get impatient.
