Kolab 16 on Ubuntu 16 - installation quirks
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The documentation says to use aptitude -y install kolab while aptitude is not installed by default on a clean Ubuntu system. So, the doc should ask for checking this or just propose to install aptitude with apt-get install aptitude.

Instead, I tried to install kolab with apt-get install kolab but it failed with dependency issue on kolab-webadmin.

When using aptitude way it works. It may make sense to note in documentation that when installing postfix it asks some questions. Leaving default choices should be ok.

Event Timeline

Sorry, I was too fast. It installed only postfix and stopped. It also fails on kolab-webadmin.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 kolab-webadmin : Depends: libapache2-mod-php5 which is a virtual package and is not provided by any available package.

                  Depends: php5 which is a virtual package and is not provided by any available package.

                  Depends: php5-mysql which is a virtual package and is not provided by any available package.

The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

     Keep the following packages at their current version:
1)     kolab [Not Installed]                              
2)     kolab-webadmin [Not Installed]

So, is it supposed to work at all?

apt-get install kolab works with Winterfell repository. I think it is misleading to have instructions for Kolab 16 at https://docs.kolab.org/installation-guide/index.html. So, we should fix the packages or remove that part of documentation.
