RHEL install fails

Hi

 

The installation fails with various perl dependencies, this is caused by the fact that a clean install of RockyLinux (and other variants) do not have the powertools repository enabled by default. There is no mention of this requirement in the Installation documentation, once enabled the install works a treat.

hi @phoenix,

AlmaLinux, RockyLinux and other "CentOS-replacement" RHEL-compatible distributions are at the moment not yet officially supported (AFAIK!), because tests have been made on RHEL8 only. I know these distribution are RHEL-compatible, but unless we test them, there can always be a chance that something does not work... This is the reason why in the official docs there is no mention of this requirement.

Glad to know they work, however, 😀  and thanks for the report!

Hi @stefanodavid

Yes, they are 'compatible' and the powertools repo is also disabled on RHEL 8. 🙂

@phoenix thanks, got it now.

as documentation team we are addressing this point by adding a note on the documentation (requirements section).

Thank you again for your contribution 🙂

It's my pleasure to help where I can but this is a fairly trivial 'problem'. 🙂

Hi all

I am trying to install the carbonio-MTA package as part of the carbonio-CE install in CentOS/Rocky Linux,

dnf install carbonio-mta
Last metadata expiration check: 031 ago on Wed 16 Nov 2022 0444 PM IST.
Error:
Problem: package carbonio-mta-4.0.16-1.el8.x86_64 requires carbonio-amavisd, but none of the providers can be installed
- package carbonio-amavisd-2.12.2-2.el8.x86_64 requires carbonio-perl-convert-uulib, but none of the providers can be installed
- cannot install the best candidate for the job
- nothing provides perl(common::sense) needed by carbonio-perl-convert-uulib-1.8-3.el8.x86_64
- nothing provides perl-common-sense needed by carbonio-perl-convert-uulib-1.8-3.el8.x86_64
(try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages)

 

If someone solved this, others can follow the workaround to fix this for further installation procedure

Installs perfectly on Oracle 8. Just this one command for another RHEL 8 variant. The other repositories were already there by default.

# dnf config-manager --enable ol8_codeready_builder

and

[zextras@mail ~]$ zmcontrol -v
Carbonio Release 22.11.0

[zextras@mail ~]$ zmcontrol status
Host mail.example.com
amavis Running
antispam Running
antivirus Running
directory-server Running
logger Running
mailbox Running
memcached Running
mta Running
opendkim Running
proxy Running
service webapp Running
stats Running
zimbra webapp Running
zimbraAdmin webapp Running
zimlet webapp Running
zmconfigd Running

Thanks for the RHEL 8 version. 

Jim
