    Porting Zarafa to QNAP

    Hi,

    (( Is this the best forum for this question? ))

    I am trying to build Zarafa on a QNAP (TS509 compatible, Atom system). Has anyone else tried this as well? So far, I'm running into all sorts of problems such as: incorrect libstdc++.la, incorrect code generation (unresolved __sync_fetch_and_add_2 references, probably i386 code instead of i686). And probably more to come.

    There has been an announcement from Zarafa/QNAP about a cooperation. But since then (March 2010) it has been silent. Does anyone know details or the status of that?

    Kind regards,
    Kees Bakker

    Hello Kees,

    What kind of OS running on the nas?

    Re: Porting Zarafa to QNAP

    Hi Robin,

    This QNAP is a Linux system based on NSLU2-Linux. This was originally developed for a Linksys router, but now used for a great number of embedded Linux systems. QNAP uses it for all their NAS products. Some are ARM based, the newer ones have Atom.

    For the advanced QNAP users there is a packaging system similar to that of Debian, it's called: IPKG. You can install most packages that you also see on any "normal" Linux system, such as gcc, bintutils, bash, ssh, etc (today there are 1440 packages).

    QNAP is not the only one in the market. I know that Synology does exactly the same, and probably Netgear and DLink too. There may be more. These systems are becoming really fast these days, with plenty of internal memory, and of course disk space. A perfect system for a small office to run Apache, postfix, MySQL, ... and Zarafa. If only I could get it to build, that is.

    Kind regards,
    Kees Bakker

    Hello Kees,

    I hope there is someone here on the forum that can help you compile Zarafa from source.

    Since you're in Delft(!), would you be able to comment on the QNAP/Zarafa press release from early this year?

    Help is always welcome. But I'm not just looking for help to compile. It is mostly about building the Zarafa package on a NAS (QNAP or any other that uses the optware/nslu2 environment).

    Kind regards,
    Kees Bakker

    Hello Kees,

    I cannot comment on that. Not sure who made the press release.

    Hello Kees,

    Well there you have it. They will deploy Zarafa via its strong channel. I think that they should have it. But again there are enough enthusiasts here that can help you compile it yourself.
