First Zentyal 2.3 packages for Ubuntu 12.04 Precise available!
« on: January 31, 2012, 09:51:02 pm »
Hi guys,

Two good news: Zentyal 3.0 is cooking already, and your help is needed to make the best release ever! As you know, the single most important change in Zentyal 3.0 is the upgrade from Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS (Lucid) to Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS (Precise) and to make this change as smooth as possible, we need your help.

What can you do? Well, we've released the first Zentyal alpha packages (not recommended for production environments) that need testing. Check this link for further information and how to test the packages on already installed Ubuntu Server 12.04:

http://trac.zentyal.org/wiki/Document/Announcement/2.3

We hope to offer you a Zentyal installer soon, but in the meanwhile, if you want to help in the beta testing you can get a current Ubuntu Server 12.04 installer at:

http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-server/daily/current/

Furthermore, we're also trying to push these packages to the official Ubuntu universe repository to replace the current Zentyal 2.0 packages.

Please let us know if encounter any problems or need any additional instructions. Your feedback is much appreciated!

I have the core running with networking logs dhcp firewall events

Had problems in restarting the server on networking changes with DNS

/etc/init.d/networking restart

Also the /etc/init.d/zentyal/ is empty

everything that is there seems ok

Quite smooth installing. Kudos for that.
Minor thing: the zentyal cloud dyndns service is linked in Networking, but doesn't seem to work (yet)

Hello,

I have installed the new release 2.3 with success

How to:
- Install ubuntu server 12.04
- Install Lxde lightweigthX11 desktop environment
- Adapted sources.list with the new Zentyal repository
- installed the key of the repository
- Install zentyal

No problems during installation.

First impression is very good, the Zentyal administrator GUI works faster.
Structure looks good, the file and print server map structure is the same as in release 2.2 what is a good begin to do the upgrade from the previous release 2.2.
Not possible to select other languages, but i suppose that that will be o.k. later on.

Question:
How can i prevent that Lxde is started at boot time, i prefare to start lxde with the command startx and at logout to return to the command mode. I have tried to adapt the files /etc/boot/grub.cfg and /etc/boot/grub but no success.

Thanks to the Zentyal team te have already done a fine job on the fantastic Zentyal server.

Best regards,
Ian

ian im sorry but due to a  hardware problem i cant login to my server to check...

but from the top of my head,  grub is only for loading the OS (kernel)  and bootscreen options,
and you should take a look into the init.d   scripts to disable the auto-loading of lxdm   

due to the high frequency of questions related to this,  might it be an idea to   load a boot menu   (ncurses) rahter than the gui...

for example,


[welcome to zentyal] 
some info here:   ip =  a.b.c.d  ip6: ff:cc:dd:1:2::  hostname =  zentyal.domain.lan other info = 

option:   boot deskop  (startx)
option:   open command line (cli)
option:   shutdown  .... (obvious)

i know that for example  freenas does it like this and its pretty easy to do, and not verry intrusive... 

it would probaly satisfy those who dont whant to load the gui,  without bothering those who do,  to mutch
(as you could probably add a timer option if you do want to load it...)
All tips hints and advices are based on my personal experience.

This could work. But I'd prefer to have a predefined option would autoload after x seconds....

Is it not something like sudo update-rc.d gdm disable 2 3 4 5

I did the same ages ago and my memory was that it wasn't init.d
