The Perforce cache gives users access to download and build/modify Zimbra source code for Open Source products. Building Zimbra Collaboration Suite from Zimbra's Perforce cache requires advanced knowledge of troubleshooting. It is not available for Network Edition components. Changes cannot be committed to the Perforce cache.

==Patch notes for IRONMAIDEN-8.0.3 (and higher)==
 +
 
 +
It just works. Build and install process automated.
 +
 
 +
==Patch notes for GNR-6.0.15 (and higher) and HELIX-7.1.4 (and higher)==
 +
 
 +
'''1) ''ThirdParty'' is used from zimbra source:'''
 +
 
 +
- ''net-snmp'' upgraded to 5.7.1 to support '''FreeBSD-9'''
 +
 
 +
- ''google-perftools'' upgraded to 1.8.3 to support '''FreeBSD-9'''
 +
 
 +
- '''all''' ''Perl'' modules bundled
 +
 
 +
- every package has its own '''FreeBSD''' patches merged in (courtesy of /usr/ports). this was a forced change to cope with many compatibility issues which, frankly, almost made my head explode
 +
 
 +
- '''popt, expat, pcre''' used from base system (zimbra default)
 +
 
 +
'''2) FreeBSD_i386 support has been removed.'''
  
Current version and changelist can be found on [http://pm.zimbra.com/pm_release.php?rel=6.0 Pmweb].
+
'''3) FreeBSD specific includes in ''ZimbraBuild/defs/FreeBSD*'' and ''ZimbraBuild/defs/ThirdParty/*''.'''
  
 +
'''4) package generation is handled by ''pkg_create'' so we install real FreeBSD specific packages.'''
  
I tried to integrate FreeBSD into source tree as much as possible so the same patched version:
+
'''5) complete rework of ''PRE-INSTALL/POST-INSTALL/DEINSTALL'' scripts in ''ZimbraBuild/rpmconf/Spec/Scripts/FreeBSD''.'''
  
a) will build on FreeBSD-6+ (provided the fact you can acquire required stuff),
+
'''6) ''libexec/zmfixperms'' now fixes all needed permissions. It is called in every ''POST-INSTALL'' script.'''
  
b) should compile on the officially supported systems (Linux, Mac) without modification,
+
'''7) really *great* pain has been undertaken to patch every little bit of zimbra universe to honor MAKE:=''gmake''.'''
  
c) should survive the normal upgrade procedure.
+
no need to copy ''gmake'' to ''/usr/bin/make'' now! rejoice only if you build often.
  
 +
'''8) server/services status and graphs in ''ZimbraAdmin'' web interface work!'''
  
'''Please, always check [http://www.zimbra.com/forums/installation/33477-zcs-6-0-1-ported-freebsd7.html zimbra FreeBSD thread] for the latest news!'''
+
'''9) the reign of ''diablo-jdk6'' has ended! long live ''openjdk6''!'''
 +
add this to your ''/etc/fstab'' just to be sure:
 +
<pre>
 +
fdesc  /dev/fd        fdescfs        rw      0      0
 +
proc    /proc          procfs          rw      0      0
 +
</pre>
 +
and make it happen:
 +
<pre>
 +
mount -a
 +
</pre>
  
==Patch notes for latest GNR-6.0.x and HELIX-7.1.x==
+
==Patch notes for GNR-6.0.14 (and lower) and HELIX-7.1.1 (and lower)==
This is a complete rework of Zimbra source tree and it sometimes makes things better than the original. Some notable changes:
 
  
 
'''1) openssl, bdb, libtool, popt, expat, pcre, libxml2, tcmalloc are used from base system.'''

Developer Article

Article Information

This article applies to the following ZCS versions.

ZCS 6.0 Article ZCS 6.0

README FIRST (please, do)

Please, do not start random threads in zimbra/installation forums AND if so, please, post a link in the dedicated sticky thread AND/OR send me an email, contact me on Skype (have a look at my forum profile for more info). Most problems can be resolved within minutes and I am subscribed only to the main thread. Keep in mind that zimbra on FreeBSD is still officially unsupported and that means you won't get (the same as Linux users would) help from zimbra team.

Most people (like myself) got tons of other activities (like family/work) so they don't have time to read excessive amount of data.

If you spot a mistake, please, let me know - I am neither psychic or omnipotent.

If anyone wonders, this is not a joke.


Please, always check 8.x (IRONMAIDEN) FreeBSD thread for the latest news!

Please, always check 7.x (HELIX) FreeBSD thread for the latest news!

Please, always check 6.x (GNR) FreeBSD thread for the latest news!


General information

By building Zimbra, you agree to Zimbra's licensing terms.

By fetching Zimbra, related FreeBSD patches and/or packages from zimbra.imladris.sk, you agree to Zimbra's, SUN's, VMware's (and any other possible) licensing terms.

Zimbra does not support FreeBSD out of the box and there are no plans for the future support (or so we all heard).

Current version and changelist can be found on Product Management Portal.

Patch notes for IRONMAIDEN-8.0.3 (and higher)

It just works. Build and install process automated.

Patch notes for GNR-6.0.15 (and higher) and HELIX-7.1.4 (and higher)

1) ThirdParty is used from zimbra source:

- net-snmp upgraded to 5.7.1 to support FreeBSD-9

- google-perftools upgraded to 1.8.3 to support FreeBSD-9

- all Perl modules bundled

- every package has its own FreeBSD patches merged in (courtesy of /usr/ports). this was a forced change to cope with many compatibility issues which, frankly, almost made my head explode

- popt, expat, pcre used from base system (zimbra default)

2) FreeBSD_i386 support has been removed.

3) FreeBSD specific includes in ZimbraBuild/defs/FreeBSD* and ZimbraBuild/defs/ThirdParty/*.

4) package generation is handled by pkg_create so we install real FreeBSD specific packages.

5) complete rework of PRE-INSTALL/POST-INSTALL/DEINSTALL scripts in ZimbraBuild/rpmconf/Spec/Scripts/FreeBSD.

6) libexec/zmfixperms now fixes all needed permissions. It is called in every POST-INSTALL script.

7) really *great* pain has been undertaken to patch every little bit of zimbra universe to honor MAKE:=gmake.

no need to copy gmake to /usr/bin/make now! rejoice only if you build often.

8) server/services status and graphs in ZimbraAdmin web interface work!

9) the reign of diablo-jdk6 has ended! long live openjdk6! add this to your /etc/fstab just to be sure:

fdesc   /dev/fd         fdescfs         rw      0       0
proc    /proc           procfs          rw      0       0

and make it happen:

mount -a

Patch notes for GNR-6.0.14 (and lower) and HELIX-7.1.1 (and lower)

1) openssl, bdb, libtool, popt, expat, pcre, libxml2, tcmalloc are used from base system.

Rest is too Zimbra specific and would be of no other use on the system.

2) Most perl modules (117+ at the moment) are used from base system. Those left unchanged are:

Getopt::Easy - not in /usr/ports and it's not really used at all besides one tiny script (no idea why not using Getopt::Long like usual),

DBD::mysql - mysql specific includes/libs not part of base,

Net-LDAPapi - ldap/cyrus-sasl specific includes/libs not part of base,

Mail-SpamAssassin - requires different datadir.

3) FreeBSD specific includes in ZimbraBuild/defs/FreeBSD* and ZimbraBuild/defs/ThirdParty/*

4) package generation is handled by pkg_create so we install real FreeBSD specific packages.

5) complete rework of PRE-INSTALL/POST-INSTALL/DEINSTALL scripts in ZimbraBuild/rpmconf/Spec/Scripts/FreeBSD.

6) libexec/zmfixperms now fixes all needed permissions. It is called in every POST-INSTALL script.

Suggested tweaks

1) cpu spikes every minute or two:

su - zimbra
zmlocalconfig -e zmmtaconfig_interval=6000
zmprov mcf zimbraLogRawLifetime 7d
zmprov mcf zimbraLogSummaryLifetime 30d
/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmlogprocess
sed -I "" -e s'|.* \* \* \* \* /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmstatuslog|\*/60 \* \* \* \* /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmstatuslog|' /var/cron/tabs/zimbra

To do

Persuade Zimbra to include official support.

Troubleshooting

This is the part where opensource community unites to solve all the problems!

Common mistakes

1) /opt/zimbra symlinked elsewhere.

we all do hate /opt/zimbra directory as it spoils our nice FreeBSD tree. but, please, resist the temptation to symlink it elsewhere as that will render zimbra unusable and the installation will fail. if you need to move the it somewhere else, please, use nullfs:

zimbra# grep nullfs /etc/fstab
/usr/home/zimbra.solko  /opt/zimbra     nullfs  rw              0       0
mount_nullfs /usr/home/zimbra.solko /opt/zimbra

alternatively, switch to ZFS as you all should!
