Z-Desktop 7.2.8 Java Not Found -SOLVED with WORKAROUND

Postby alex_rhys-hurn » Fri May 20, 2016 8:33 am

Hi,

I am using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Here is my Java setup, as you can see I have correctly selected the 32bit Java (in this case java-9 but i have tried with java-8 too):

Code: Select all

update-alternatives  --config java
There are 3 choices for the alternative java (providing /usr/bin/java).
  Selection    Path                                            Priority   Status
------------------------------------------------------------
  0            /usr/lib/jvm/java-9-openjdk-i386/bin/java        1090      auto mode
  1            /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/java   1081      manual mode
  2            /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-i386/jre/bin/java    1080      manual mode
* 3            /usr/lib/jvm/java-9-openjdk-i386/bin/java        1090      manual mode
Press <enter> to keep the current choice[*], or type selection number:


My Java version is:

Code: Select all

java -version
openjdk version "9-internal"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 9-internal+0-2016-04-14-195526.buildd.src)
OpenJDK Server VM (build 9-internal+0-2016-04-14-195526.buildd.src, mixed mode)


Then I proceed to install ZImbra Desktop, and I get this error:

License Terms for this Zimbra Desktop Software: http://www.zimbra.com/license/zimbra_public_eula.html

Code: Select all

------------------------------
(A)ccept or (D)ecline [A]: A

WARNING: ia32-libs is missing for x86_64 platform. This package is required to run Zimbra Desktop on 64-bit Linux.

Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) not found. Please install JRE 1.6 or later.


I have worked with installing Zimbra Desktop on Ubuntu many times, and understand this.

I am having exactly the same with Zimbra Desktop 7.2.7

Anyone else having this problem? Have any ideas?

Alex

Can you confirm all steps mentioned at https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Installing ... top_64bits.

Hi,

Thanks for the response.

I should have said that I was using that wiki article.

Yes, I have followed that procedure, and everything works, except that I had to change gcc-4.6-base:i386 to gcc-4.9-base:i386

Otherwise everything is exactly the same.

Alex,

I think ZD is failing to capture version information from output of "java -version" command.

e.g. zimbra@ubuntu:~$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_95"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.6.4) (7u95-2.6.4-0ubuntu0.14.04.2)
OpenJDK Client VM (build 24.95-b01, mixed mode, sharing)

In above output the version is mentioned using string "java version "1.7.0_95". And current logic of ZD script looks for such pattern.

And for open-jdk 9 you are getting version information in different format. I guess that's the problem.

As you mentioned you have already tired 1.8, Do you mind checking "java -version" with 1.8?

Hey. Thanks for the interest and support.

Code: Select all

java -version
openjdk version "1.8.0_91"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_91-8u91-b14-0ubuntu4~16.04.1-b14)
OpenJDK Server VM (build 25.91-b14, mixed mode)


and

Code: Select all

update-alternatives --config java
There are 3 choices for the alternative java (providing /usr/bin/java).

  Selection    Path                                            Priority   Status
------------------------------------------------------------
  0            /usr/lib/jvm/java-9-openjdk-i386/bin/java        1090      auto mode
  1            /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/java   1081      manual mode
* 2            /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-i386/jre/bin/java    1080      manual mode

It looks like there is no openjdk-7-jre and openjdk-7-jre:i386 in the repos for Ubuntu 16.04, only Java 8 and 9.

I could add a ppa for openjdk 7 but dont really want to do that on this machine, but if it is helpful for you I could spin up a VM for you.

Let me know.

Cheers!

Re: Z-Desktop 7.2.8 Java Not Found - SOLVED WITH WORKAROUND

Hi.

Success.

I edited the install.pl file and commented out the following on line 145.

Code: Select all

else { print "Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) not found. Please install JRE 1.6 or later.\n"; exit; }


to look like

Code: Select all

#   else { print "Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) not found. Please install JRE 1.6 or later.\n"; exit; }


with the intention of making the script ignore the output of the java -version check.

The installation proceeded fine, and zimbra desktop is running fine with java 8 on ubuntu 16.04

Thanks for pointing me to a workaround,

Cheers!

EDIT:

Background for others. This problem is specifically related related to Ubuntu 16.04 which includes penjdk-8 by default and openjdk-9 as an option. The output of java -version is different than what the install.pl of zdesktop is looking for, so the installed fails.

This workaround will likely solve the issue of installing zdesktop 7.2.7 as well but I havent tried it. It may also work for other *nixes that are including openjdk versions higher than 7.

You could comment out the whole Java check at the bottom of the script where the sub is actually called. that is what I did
