From SME Server
Jump to: navigation, search

This page lists all the packages that SME Server needs to build for SME 10. The starting point is the smeos directory from SME 9. For each package it should be checked if it is still needed, or can we use an upstream package if one is available.

Package Build Steps

check out package

cp -a sme9 sme10
rm -rf sme10/CVS
cd sme10
make clean
mv {sourcedir} {newsourcedir}
  • example e-smith-base-5.2.0 to e-smith-base-5.4.0
rm -f *.patch

{apply any fixes from spec to tree} {move lib/perl5/site_perl to share/perl5/vendor_perl}

tar Jcvf {newsource}.tar.xz {newsourcedir}
vi *.spec
  • remove patches and fixes applied directly to tree
  • bump version and reset release to 1
  • add changelog saying rolling for sme10
make new-sources FILES=*xz
  • will get errors here because no cvs (that's fine)
make mockbuild
  • if this works then we can proceed
rpm -qpl {noarch/x86_64}/{rpmname}.rpm
  • check that files look similar to the sme8 package

These following steps need developer access

They are here for reference, and transparency. They will need to be run on SME Server's build server. You do not need to do this part.

cd ..
cvs add sme10
cd sme10
date +%s
  • get date for import
vi import.log*
  • fix name/version/release and date
cvs add .cvsignore *.spec Makefile import.log sources
  • be sure to add any other needed packages
make commit tag build

  • Current status will be added soon

Bare install test

install a minimal Centos7 configure network access during installation with option to restore.

yum update -y
yum install nano net-tools mc man htop top iftop iptraf screen openssh-clients mlocate wget vim
  • disable SELinux

SELinux is enabled by default. We want to disable it for there are a few services (e.g. httpd) that get blocked by SELinux. To check the status of SELinux you can enter the command:


SELinux uses policies that conflict with some of the SME Server services ports like https. One can adjust the allowed ports, or remove the SELinux policies and disable SELinux by the following commands:

setenforce 0
sed -i -e 's/SELINUX=.*/SELINUX=disabled/g' /etc/selinux/config
yum remove selinux-policy-targeted

  • Enable SSH

SSH is present but is disabled at this stage. To enable ssh issue:

service sshd start

You may have a slow login to ssh, if needed :

vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config

You have to restart the ssh service or the server

  • Reboot system to ensure all new config are permanent

update packages

yum update

install SME10 repo

vim /etc/yum.repos.d/smeserver10.repo

and paste

name=SME Server - dev
name=SME Server - dev
name=SME Server - dev
name=SME Server - dev

install SME10 key

rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY-koozali

install EPEL7 repo

yum install epel-release


yum --enablerepo=* clean all

try installing SME10 packages, you might need to enable some repo using --enablerepo=smedev,epel,elrepo ... e.g.

yum install e-smith-* smeserver-* --enablerepo=smedev,smetest,epel,base,updates


yum install e-smith-* smeserver-*

you will have to disable postfix :

systemctl stop postfix
systemctl disable postfix

latter it will be good to also deactivate networkManager, to leave network service doing the job, but you also need to configure e-smith db for the server first.

#systemctl stop NetworkManager
#systemctl disable NetworkManager

AT this point ( 2016/03/26 Unnilennium (talk) 13:44, 27 March 2016 (CEST)) you could issue a signal-event post-upgrade; signal-event-reboot; signal-event bootstrap-console-save;signal-event-reboot . But you would have no more network running, as default entry are empty for network. So you are better to expand necessary template using specific event to test each service.

The below list is based on SME10 testing smedev packages and default minimal install of CentOS 7. Enabling the epel and rpmforge repositories will resolve a number of dependencies.

Install SME packages and test

another milestone reached on 2016-03-18 : we were able to install

yum install e-smith-base --enablerepo=smedev,smetest,epel,base,updates

and issue a

/sbin/e-smith/signal-event post-upgrade; /sbin/e-smith/signal-event reboot

wit a system still booting after that :)

we need now to test every base packages and functionality.

Ahead we can think big blocking: - perl-suid need to be replaced - -> systemd - grub -> grub2 -

Horde Testing from John Bennett III

This is taken from an email sent by John to the dev discussion list, which may well contain useful information about configuring the system for testing:

I personally didn't install the e-smith-horde,ingo,imp,turba packages, as those were built for horde 3, and I hadn't tested whether horde would even load using those files. I saw that some of updated horde files were going to be installed, because someone changed the dependency to Requires: horde >= 3.2, which tries to pull them from the centos repo.

I tested what I have built and been using. They loaded fine, and brought in all of the other dependencies.

Webserver wasn't working, enabled it using:

service httpd start or /bin/systemctl start  httpd.service

Permanently enable using:

systemctl enable httpd

Couldn't access webserver.

Also need to stop firewalld for now as well using:

service firewalld stop or /bin/systemctl stop  firewalld.service

For testing, I just disabled it permanently using:

/bin/systemctl disable firewalld.service

to renable:

/bin/systemctl enable firewalld.service

I am now able to access the webserver. Note, I put a sample index.html in the doc root to verify.

I saved a copy of a good httpd.conf, then I did an expand-template /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf so that all of the horde information would be there. Re-starting httpd threw an error out, as expected.

I manually changed /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf and added the alias info. Then manually changed httpd.conf and added all of the horde <Directory parameters, and remarked out the <directory stanzas that deny access to the whole server filesystem. Lines 102-105 for me. Didn't want to waste any additional time figuring out what needs to be really done at this time.

Restarted httpd, then went to webmail, and the page appeared.

Now on to mariabd.

Enabled using:

systemctl enable mariadb
cd /etc/e-smith/templates/etc/e-smith/sql/init/ and started to manually run all of the horde-related scripts.
