I am trying to install Kopano on CentOS 7 with EPEL but the Installation fails with a missing package.
This is what i have done:
wget https://download.kopano.io/community/core:/core-22.214.171.124-RHEL_7_EPEL_7-x86_64.tar.gz tar xzvf core-126.96.36.199-RHEL_7_EPEL_7-x86_64.tar.gz cd core-188.8.131.52-RHEL_7_EPEL_7-x86_64 mkdir notinstall ; mv *devel*.rpm *debug*.rpm notinstall yum install *.rpm
This is what I get:
... ... ---> Package kopano-search.x86_64 0:184.108.40.206.1889fded5-281.1 will be installed --> Processing Dependency: python3-xapian for package: kopano-search-220.127.116.11.1889fded5-281.1.x86_64 ---> Package libXdamage.x86_64 0:1.1.4-4.1.el7 will be installed ---> Package libXfixes.x86_64 0:5.0.3-1.el7 will be installed ---> Package libXxf86vm.x86_64 0:1.1.4-1.el7 will be installed ---> Package libwayland-client.x86_64 0:1.15.0-1.el7 will be installed ---> Package libwayland-server.x86_64 0:1.15.0-1.el7 will be installed ---> Package libxshmfence.x86_64 0:1.2-1.el7 will be installed ---> Package mesa-libgbm.x86_64 0:18.0.5-4.el7_6 will be installed ---> Package mesa-libglapi.x86_64 0:18.0.5-4.el7_6 will be installed --> Finished Dependency Resolution Error: Package: kopano-search-18.104.22.168.1889fded5-281.1.x86_64 (/kopano-search-22.214.171.124.1889fded5-281.1.x86_64) Requires: python3-xapian You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I’m facing the same issue here. Will this problem be addressed in future builds? python3-xapian is still missing in the CentOS package

The same error with core-126.96.36.199.1d6c032-RHEL_7_EPEL_7-x86_64
Fehler: Paket: kopano-search-188.8.131.52.8dd42d860-405.1.x86_64 (/kopano-search-184.108.40.206.8dd42d860-405.1.x86_64)
Which kopano-Version is working with Centos 7 ?

Mixing rpms between OSes is a very bad idea. Please don’t recommend it to people. For example, CentOS is currently still on Python 3.6, whilst Fedora is on 3.7.

Hi guys, did someone find a solution for this issue?

Did anyone find a solution?
I would recommend using a Debian based distribution, RHEL/CentOS is just not a focus (at the moment).

First of all i think its pretty sad that theres currently no focus on RHEL especially since i suppose kopano is meant as an enterprise solution.
For the community imho its still pretty tough to install kopano (lots of archives, some even with missing rpms inside -> chose RHEL-EPEL where possible as it seems the most complete). I think it would also help to have a repo available for the community. You definitely make it harder to install than it should be. Using createrepo is currently of no use either since there are lots of conflicts. I had to force the installation via rpm …
Part of the solution for RHEL is described in https://forum.kopano.io/topic/2385/installation-of-kopano-core-on-centos-7-not-possible/8
I also used the howto at https://www.huerter.me/index.php/2018/07/12/howto-setup-kopano-als-kolab-groupware-ersatz/ (written for debian but can be used on RHEL in a similar fashion).
Still I had quite some problems:
- kopano-webapp-plugin-filesbackend-smb has dependency for a php5-package whilst it should be PHP7 (as the tar-archive suggests).
rpmrebuild, correct the package name, install …
- kopano-search wants python3-python-magic and python3-xapian
install the packages providing these by rpm or (compile/install) by source any rpmrebuild
- lots (!) of unmet dependencies.
yum install these
- found by accident: kopano-cli --list-users needs the python module tzlocal
/usr/bin/pip3 install tzlocal
Hoping my findings help some of you out. All in all: the installation on RHEL is totally possible!

thank you for your detailled explanation. I will try it in my lab environment.

By the way, it is nearly impossible to install it on RHEL 7 (with epel):
Does anybody know, if theese issues also happen in the commercial verison?
Or is there any roadmap when it is fixed in the community edition (I know that there is no priority a the moment)
