    This post seems to indcate you can change the install script to make it work:

    http://www.zimbra.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5460&


    This is what /etc/debian_version tells me
    vserver1:~/zcs/bin# cat /etc/debian_version
    4.0

    so in zcs/bin/get_plat_tag.sh I modified the line with the grep

    original:
    if [ -f /etc/debian_version ]; then
    grep "3.1" /etc/debian_version > /dev/null 2>&1
    if [ $? = 0 ]; then
    echo "DEBIAN3.1"
    exit 0
    fi
    fi

    modified the grep line to
    grep "4.0" /etc/debian_version > /dev/null 2>&1

    and it works. Thanks to quick help.

    best regards
    Dani
    I'm going to try it out tonight and will let you know how it goes.

    one step further...

    The the install now check the prerequisites correctly, however I have a problem with libgmp3. When I
    Code:
    apt-get install libgmp3
    I recevie this:
    Code:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    Package libgmp3 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    However the following packages replace it:
      libgmpxx4 libgmp3c2 libgmp3-doc
    E: Package libgmp3 has no installation candidate
    I've installed libgmpxx4 and libgmp3c2 but still get the MISSING error.

    This has been posted elsewhere but now answer:
    http://www.zimbra.com/forums/showthr...mp3c2#post9734


    Any suggestions??

    You can get the package from http://packages.debian.org/stable/libs/libgmp3
    Pick your architecture and you can download the deb that is included with sarge.
    Make sure you uninstall all the libgmp packages you got from the etch repositories, then install this one with dpkg. Just tried it, and it worked on my machine.

    Question Also installing on etch

    hi All
    I'm trying to install zcs-4.5.3_GA_733.DEBIAN3.1 on debian etch

    I do a clean basic install

    next fix Ip address
    next nano /etc/hosts

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    192.16.36.40 zcsserver.mydomain.home zcsserver

    nano /etc/resolv.conf

    search localdomain
    nameserver 192.168.111.222

    (all ipv6 is commented out)

    apt-get install openssl libstdc++6 libxml2-dev sudo curl fetchmail libgmp3c2

    copy zcs-4.5.3_GA_733.DEBIAN3.1.tar to my home directory

    tar xvfz zcs-4.5.3_GA_733.DEBIAN3.1.tar

    cd zcs/bin

    nano get_plat_tag.sh

    change

    if [ -f /etc/debian_version ]; then
    grep "3.1" /etc/debian_version > /dev/null 2>&1
    if [ $? = 0 ]; then
    echo "DEBIAN3.1"
    exit 0

    to

    if [ -f /etc/debian_version ]; then
    grep "4.0" /etc/debian_version > /dev/null 2>&1
    if [ $? = 0 ]; then
    echo "DEBIAN3.1"
    exit 0

    nano util/utilfunc.sh

    Search for Debian3.1

    Change line

    PREREQ_PACKAGES="sudo libidn11 curl fetchmail libgmp3 libxml2 libstdc++6 openssl"

    To

    PREREQ_PACKAGES="sudo libidn11 curl fetchmail libgmp3c2 libxml2 libstdc++6 openssl"

    next I run the install.sh

    Yes to all installs, yes to system modification

    Then I Get
    Setting defaults...No results returned for A lookup of zcsserver.mydomain.home
    Checked nameservers:
    192.168.111.222


    DNS ERROR resolving zcsserver.mydomain.home
    It is suggested that the hostname be resolveable via DNS
    Change hostname [Yes]


    Can anyone describe the steps required to setup the DNS

    Thanks Owenus

    It has been covered once or twice, did you search the forums and wiki for the answer?

    Default Install workaround for 4.0 Etch

    Before you start, *setup your DNS*. Zimbra install is very sensitive to correct DNS setup, particularly /etc/hosts and forward resolution of the hostname you are installing on as returned from hostname. Search wiki/forum for correct DNS setup.

    change /etc/debian_version to 3.1
    apt-get install sudo curl fetchmail libgmp3c2 libssl0.9.7 libdb3
    chmod a+rwx /tmp

    tar -xzf
    cd zcs/

    clean out previous attempts:
    sh install -u
    rm -rf /opt/zimbra
    rm /tmp/install*
    rm /tmp/zmsetup*
    rm /tmp/*zim*

    change util/utilfunc.sh
    if [ $PLATFORM = "UBUNTU6"]; then
    to
    if [ $PLATFORM = "UBUNTU6" -o $PLATFORM = "DEBIAN3.1" ]; then

    sh install.sh

    Strangely detects hostname as domainname (never quite understood why it does this). Select 'Yes' for "Change domain name", change to domainname "domain.com" instead of "host.domain.com"

    If you haven't set your MX yet, ignore (you'll need to set this later but its fine for install):
    DNS ERROR - none of the MX records for ijichi.org
    resolve to this host
    It is suggested that the MX record resolve to this host
    Re-Enter domain name? [Yes]
    ^^ Choose "No"

    Install Menu: Choose 6 for zimbra-store, 4 for Admin Password, enter password, 'r' or for previous menu, 'a' to apply, Enter for next two questions:
    Save configuration data to a file? [Yes]
    Save config in file: [/opt/zimbra/config.15938]
    Then 'Yes' for: The system will be modified - continue? [No] yes

    Checkout output carefully for *any* errors, should install fine.

    You can change /etc/debian_version back to 4.0 after install but you'll have to change it for each upgrade
