Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft) Shell Changes

Revision as of 21:41, 8 March 2007 by JbAZ (talk | contribs)

The Zimbra install scripts use 'source'.

Newer versions of Ubuntu (I think Edgy was the first) use 'dash' as the shell which doesn't have 'source'.

You will come across errors in your install log like:

Creating SSL certificate...
*** Running as zimbra user: cd /opt/zimbra; zmcreatecert 

/opt/zimbra/bin/zmcreatecert: 27: source: not found

Change to using 'bash' and run install.sh and things should work:

sudo mv /bin/sh /bin/sh-old
sudo ln -s /bin/bash /bin/sh 

(You can also rm /bin/sh according to others)
