Fedora Core 4 how-to

Postby mikeygstl » Wed Nov 02, 2005 4:26 pm

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 #

  • chkconfig sendmail off

  • service sendmail stop




use /usr/bin/links (a text browser) to download the FC3 zimbra rpm from
extract">http://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.

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... :eek: 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.
