Installation of Kolab Winterfell on Ubuntu 16.04ΒΆ


Kolab Winterfell eats babies, for breakfast. There is potential data-loss included.

  1. Add the following two lines to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/kolab.list:

    deb ./
    deb-src ./
  2. Import the GPG key used to sign the packages:

    # wget -q -O- | apt-key add -
  3. To ensure the Kolab packages have priority over the Ubuntu packages, such as must be the case for PHP as well as Cyrus IMAP, please make sure the APT preferences pin the origin as a preferred source.

    Put the following in /etc/apt/preferences.d/kolab:

    Package: *
    Pin: origin
    Pin-Priority: 501
  4. Update the repository metadata:

    # apt-get update
  5. Start the installation of the base package as follows:

    # aptitude -y install kolab

Continue to Kolab Groupware Setup.
