    Default Can't install 7.2.2GA on Scientific 6.4

    Before I move to 8.x, I am trying to set the currently operations ZCS in a VM
    Downloaded the right tgz ( zcs-7.2.2_GA_2852.RHEL6_64.20121204211835), unpacked, and running the install script:

    Code:
    [root@ems-dr zcs-7.2.2_GA_2852.RHEL6_64.20121204211835]# ./install.sh
    bin/get_plat_tag.sh: line 208: dpkg: command not found
    
    Operations logged to /tmp/install.log.2010

    One or more prerequisite packages are missing.
    Please install them before running this installer.
    
    Installation cancelled.
    Any ideas are welcome, what especially worries me is the dpkg error - afaik the installer checks for installed packages using rpm/dpkg, depending on the distro in use, and dpkg shouldn't be used on an RPM distro like Scientific, especially since I'm using a "RHEL" installation package

    I have been through that set of documents quite q few times before. Without going into the code myself, I suspect the newer package versions in 6.4 might be breaking something in the installer. In any case, why the dpkg error on a RHEL-compatible system?

    Problem is pointing to following sniffet from bin/get_plat_tag.sh

    if [ -f /etc/lsb-release ]; then
    i=`dpkg --print-architecture`
    if [ "x$i" = "xamd64" ]; then
    i="_64"
    else
    i=""
    fi

    Problem seems to be related to RHEL OS. Just a wierd guess. Please modify the file bin/get_plat_tag.sh with i=`sudo dpkg --print-architecture` and try running it again.

    No, this seems to be the problem:

    Code:
    if [ -f /etc/lsb-release ]; then
    i=`dpkg --print-architecture`
    there is no dpkg in RHEL, sudo or no sudo. dpkg is a debian package.

    No, the problem is that you're using an unsupported distribution. This install script works fine for RHEL & CentOS and all the other platforms supported by Zimbra. Did you actually use the correct command to do the install?

    Not curious at all. By the code snippet you posted the redhat variants dont have /etc/lsb-release so dpkg never gets called. Obviously your later version of scientific Linux does. It's not magic, and it's not a bug. Move that file aside while you install zimbra and be happy.

    you're right, that worked, if you're ever out in the North Alberta boonies, a beer's on me! That was so obvious, in retrospect. Seems like some of the most recent SL updates added that file in
