Description Daniel Tröder univentionstaff 2017-05-09 10:33:46 CEST
Modify the package dependencies of univention-mail-dovecot to allow to use Dovecot Pro with the mailserver app.
Comment 1 Daniel Tröder univentionstaff 2017-05-09 15:14:09 CEST
79246: allow to install Dovecot Pro
79247: advisory

Package: univention-mail-dovecot
Version: 3.0.1-1A~
Branch: ucs_4.2-0
Scope: errata4.2-0

The package dovecot-ee-core depends on libstemmer0d, so you'll have to allow unmaintained packages.

If the univention-mail-server (the mailserver app) is already installed, and Debians Dovecot packages should be replaced without prior deinstallation of univention-mail-server (an ox etc), all installed Dovecot packages must be listed in the following command:

# apt-get install dovecot-ee-core dovecot-ee-imapd dovecot-ee-ldap dovecot-ee-lmtpd dovecot-ee-managesieved dovecot-ee-pop3d dovecot-ee-sieve

Append other package names to the above command, if they are installed (for examaple dovecot-ee-solr):
# dpkg-query -W -f='${db:Status-Abbrev} ${binary:Package}\n' 'dovecot-*' | egrep ^i

If dovecot is already installed, an error happens during the apt-get install run:
Vorbereitung zum Entpacken von .../dovecot-ee-lmtpd_2%3a2.2.29.1-5_amd64.deb ...
Entpacken von dovecot-ee-lmtpd (2: ...
dpkg: Fehler beim Bearbeiten des Archivs /var/cache/apt/archives/dovecot-ee-lmtpd_2%3a2.2.29.1-5_amd64.deb (--unpack):
 Versuch, »/usr/share/dovecot/conf.d/20-lmtp.conf« zu überschreiben, welches auch in Paket dovecot-lmtpd 1:2.2.13-12~deb8u1 ist

The only way to not first uninstall univention-mail-server (and possibly ox app) and to manually remove dovecot-lmtpd is to allow dpkg to overwrite the file:

# dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/dovecot-ee-lmtpd_*.deb

Then continue the installation:

# apt-get -f install

In my case dovecot wasn't running then. It could not be started, because the service was "masked". To enable it I ran:

# systemctl unmask dovecot.service
# systemctl unmask dovecot.socket
# systemctl start dovecot.service

ucs-tests look promising.
