    Default FC4 installer probs with zimbra-spell

    Greetings,
    I was looking forward to putting the FC4 version into action, but had this problem after running install:

    zimbra-spell-3.0.0_M2_746.FC4-20051116155303.i386.rpm installation failed

    installation cancelled

    It was installing fine up to that point

    I used mikeygstl's Fedora Core 4 how-to, but had to yum libstdc++.so.5

    It's FC 4 on a Pentium 1.5, 512 megs.

    Any clues?

    I told it to try again, but it is writing a config file.

    Thanks,
    Pete

    Default The unknown host

    I wasn't sure about the unknown host part.
    I modified the host file according to 2 different threads, which worked on my other FC4 box usingthe FC3 zim installer.

    It reads:

    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost mail.zim.bscbellevue.com

    Default I'll try again

    It was a faily painless install up to the fail point.
    It looks like the installer is detirmined to create a log file big enough to use all the memory, so I am guessing putting FC4 on fresh again would be the quicker way to resolve at least that problem.

    Any clues about the "unknow host" thing?

    Thanks,
    Pete

    Default hostname

    zim.bscbellevue.com

    Does that mean the "mail.zim.bscbellevue.com" in the hosts file needs to have "mail" dropped out?

    thanks,
    Pete

    Default yup

    Yes - if the return value of `hostname` isn't in /etc/hosts, you're going to have all kinds of problems.

    Default Ok, I'll try again

    Thanks for the input, I'll reformat and start fresh.
    This is a great forum, and a very cool project.
    Thanks again,
    Pete
