Description A. Person 2013-01-07 03:59:54 UTC
I installed egroupware- and there seem to be several problems with the dependencies and post-install message.

The PHP USE dependencies seemed to be based on php-5.3 but egroupware's check_install.php seems to use php-5.4.

check_install.php displays the following warnings which are eliminated once PHP is recompiled with the xmlreader and sqlite3 USE flags and PEAR::XML_Feed_Parser is installed:

Checking extension xmlreader is loaded or loadable: False
The xmlreader extension is needed from: .

Checking extension pdo_sqlite is loaded or loadable: False
The pdo_sqlite extension is needed from: Calendar.

Checking PEAR::XML_Feed_Parser is installed: False
PEAR::XML_Feed_Parser is needed by: NewsAdmin. You can install it by running: pear install XML_Feed_Parser

Part of the post-install message is:

Point your browser to the URL http://localhost/egroupware/setup and follow the install/upgrade script.

The path should be instead:


Also, the above message did not appear in elogv at all and I have PORTAGE_ELOG_CLASSES="log warn error" in make.conf.  Should the message has been included?

Reproducible: Always

The path listed in the post-install works correctly.
Comment 3 J. Roeleveld 2015-01-22 13:40:30 UTC
Is this bug still relevant?

1.8 is old and EOL.

14.1 has been out for a while and 14.2 RC1 has just been released.
Comment 4 turtle 2015-12-13 22:45:21 UTC
egroupware 14 no longer contains a GPL licensed group administration app:
So people whom cant get the licensed one may stick with 1.8.

I would like to add that the egroupware-1.8 email module breaks in php 5.6 so that should be a blocker.
egroupware 1.8 continues to work in php 5.5.

Cheers Turtle

It appears that there is a more recent version of egroupware 1.8 in their svn system:
So perhaps a version bump to php 5.5 of egroupware 1.8?

Running the command:

svn checkout /my/egroupware/install/dir

gets it
