Building Zimbra

Postby aishwaryraj » Sun Jul 08, 2018 10:00 pm

I want to know why in the Zimbra Wiki only specific platforms are listed for build process. This means that building Zimbra on other for example Linux distributions is impossible? What is the real reason behind the choice of a special Linux distribution for building Zimbra by the Zimbra community?

Re: Building Zimbra - now finally possible

Zimbra folks don't support building on other Distros than RHEL and Ubuntu
(actually, even there, their build system is really broken).

But I do:
It's not completely finished yet - you'll yet have to pull certain repos from me instead of Zimbra
(I'll add a script for that in near time).

For now, I'm just focusing on deb-based distros (Debian, Devuan, ...).

If anybody likes to learn more or join in, just drop me a mail:
