I installed egroupware-1.8.004.20120613:1.8.004.20120613 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?
Created attachment 341498 [details]
This version has the missing dependencies added
The path listed in the post-install works correctly.
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.
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.
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 http://svn.egroupware.org/egroupware/branches/1.8/aliases/default /my/egroupware/install/dir
