Hi All,

The specs for running the MailServer on SuSE Linux state that version 10.x is required and that libstdc++.so.5 must be installed. We are running SLES 9.3 (2.6.11.4-21.15-smp on a 64bit server) with libstdc++.so.5 installed. We do not plan to upgrade to 10.x anytime soon. Can anyone confirm if the MailServer will run on SuSE SLES 9?

Assuming it does run, are there any differences in performance, behavior or functionality when installed on SLES 9.x versus 10.x?

If it matters, we plan to use Outlook and the Kerio web front-end as clients.

Thanks!

-Dave H.

Can't vouch for SLES 10, but I have KMS running on SuSE Professional 9.1 and 9.3 with no problems at all.

I can't see a great deal of difference between SLES and Professional versions of SuSE, other than SLES has been focused on business (no games etc) - the libraries appear to be very similar.

I thought Kerio was only supported on 32-bit Linux?

Could very well be the case... that's why I'm asking :)

If that is the case then we may have insurmountable problems. A 32-bit executable will run fine on 64-bit Linux as long as it is linked with static libraries. However, the specs do say that the shared libstdc++ is required, and as far as I know a 32-bit executable can not link with a shared 64-bit library.

Yes good catch, Kerio MailServer is only supported on 32-bit operating systems at this time. To review what operating systems are supported, please review the following page:

To the Kerio rep who weighed in, I'm just curious: any technical reason why the product couldn't be compiled for 64-bit, or is it just lack of resources (hardware, testing staff, etc)? With the exception of a few system-specific tools, we've found that most applications written on 32-bit Linux systems recompile cleanly on 64-bit systems.

Testing is probably the largest reason. We are unable to re-compile the binary, then do the appropriate testing to ensure compatibility on 64-bit operating system.

What does this mean? If you are running on a 64-bit operating system, we can not guarantee, for example, that the mail server process will not delete your entire message store. I always use that example to demonstrate the risks you may be taking by using an unsupported operating system.

heze54: Just a note, SLES 9 is no longer a supported operating system (even in the 32-bit flavor). Just something to keep in mind. Wink
