eBox 0.11 testing packages for Ubuntu Gutsy
« on: January 16, 2008, 04:43:36 pm »
Hi fellow eBox users!

Your favourite development team has been working very hard to bring you a
first preview of an Ubuntu Gutsy based eBox 0.11.

Porting eBox to a new platform involves changes in all the modules,
and while a lot of care has been taken in this process, you will probably
find some rough edges. That's why your help is so important to us. Your
reports are our most valuable resource in our effort to gradually polish
the platform, so be sure to report these issues.

Important Disclaimer
This is an alpha version and it's not intended to be used in production
systems at all. Please be advised that your system might end up in an
unusable state.

Remember that eBox overwrites configuration for some network services,
so it’s not recommended to have them previously configured (or their
configuration could be lost).

eBox is meant to be run in a dedicated machine.


Known issues
The backup system is not working at the moment. You will be able to backup
and restore simple configurations. However, you will experience problems
when restoring backups from previous versions.

Logs are not working.

Events are not working.

Most of the packages do not comply with the Ubuntu Packaging Policy yet.
Note that these packages are not official Ubuntu packages.

We have temporarily gone back to apache 1.3.x as we are having some issues with apache2.

List of available modules
  • ebox
  • ebox-services
  • ebox-objects
  • ebox-network
  • ebox-firewall
  • ebox-dns
  • ebox-dhcp
  • ebox-squid
  • ebox-trafficshaping
  • ebox-usersandgroups
  • ebox-samba
  • ebox-printers
  • ebox-mail
  • ebox-mailfilter

Pending modules (work in progress, due in a few days)
  • ebox-ntp
  • ebox-soap
  • ebox-jabber
  • ebox-webserver

How to install
First of all, you need an Ubuntu Gutsy distro. We usually download the
server version from here http://releases.ubuntu.com/7.10/ubuntu-7.10-server-i386.iso

Go through the installation process. Once you are done add these two lines to
/etc/apt/sources.lists



Code: [Select]
deb http://ebox-platform.com/ubuntu/gutsy/unstable/ ebox/
deb http://ebox-platform.com/ubuntu/gutsy/unstable/ extra/

Save the file and execute the following command:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update



You can either install the modules you need or all the eBox modules by
executing:

Code: [Select]
export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive
sudo apt-get install ebox-all

Every time you install a new module you will have to restart apache:

Code: [Select]
sudo /etc/init.d/ebox apache restart

Acknowledgments
Thanks to the Ubuntu developers who started the eBox packaging process for
Ubuntu. It's been very useful to keep working from that point.

Shouldn't:
sudo apt-get install ebox-all
export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive

be the other way round and read:
export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive
sudo apt-get install ebox-all

If i'm wrong feel free to correct me.

Thanks for that. I was about to post asking a similar thing when I was puzzled about my ebox installation not working correctly on a VituralBox installation :) Thank gawd for snapshots, the swapped around instructions work flawlessly this time without errors.

Hi all.

I just installed ubuntu 7.10 + ebox

An error ocurred with amavisd-new, and i cannot install amavisd-new, ebox-mailfilter and EBOX-ALL!

i try to unistall ebox-all, but i cannot: amavisd-new set an error another time, ebox-mailfiler cannot be unistall (dependence problems) and ebox-all too :'(

If i do
Quote
sudo apt-get remove amavisd-new
then it remove ebox-maifilter, but ebox-all is not installed.

Any solution to unistall/install ebox-all on 7.10 server?

----------------------------------------

I try to install ebox "one by one":

Code: [Select]
apt-get install ebox
apt-get install ebox-services
apt-get install ebox-dhcp
apt-get install ebox-samba
...

And it said always "ebox-X is just installed"

if i execute ifcongif, eth0 is set to 192.168.1.143, but when i connect to http://192.168.1.143 at another PC is not possible.

Before i make /etc/init.d/ebox apache restart.

Doing ps aux | grep apache only show me process about apache2

Doing ps aux | grep ebox show me process about apache2 too (/var/lib/ebox/conf/apache2.conf)

--------

I note apache2 was installed (i dont check nothing at ubuntu installation)

i remove it: apt-get remove apache --purge

And then: apt-get install apache apache-common; note that gets apache from ebox-platform repository (1.3) :)

Now i unsitall all ebox packages, and install it again (one by one, not using ebox-all)

Restart apache /etc/init.d/ebox apache restart

With 192.168.1.143 i cannot connect.

With links localhost i see apache default site, but not ebox site :(

-----------------

Another update :)

First of all: need to reboot the server!
Secondly: use https, not http!

I'm on the ebox config page, but status dont work: An internal error has ocurred. This is most probably a bug, relevant information can be found in the logs.

It's time to test it!! :)

Hi chencho,
  the firewall has changed the interface so the link you posted is not longer useful.
  To do the same thing with the new interface you must go to 'Firewall->Packet filter' then click in 'Filtering rules from internal networks to eBox;.
IThen click 'in add new' and make a rule for the service 'ssh'  with the 'ACCEPT' destination.

If you don't have already the ssh service created you must go to the 'Services' section in the left menu and add it to the list

I am really looking forward to eBox on Ubuntu - particularly for the improved hardware compatibility.

Do you anticipate working on the OpenVPN module soon?

Thank you for all the excellent work!

Eric

Hi all again.

I see another ¿bug?. At services, i cannot edit ssh service (or another by default) to set it as "internal", and i cannot remove it.

I have the same problem, ssh is simply not working. Can not edit it and any changes I do in firewall rules seem not to have any effect. Any way of manually starting the service from the server?

I have to use Gutsy version as the server I use have SATA disk and the Debian based Ebox simply do not install.

Praise to you guys btw, this is an excellent concept.

I can answer myself here: the openssh never seems to get installed. Install that (and no other) from ubuntu-server install and you are up and go...
