Zarafa packages for Arch Linux x64 and i686

Today I’m glad to announce release of the new Zarafa packages for Archlinux on x64 and i686 systems. Just follow the instructions for Arch Linux ARM.

The package has been renamed to zarafa-server and all posts have been changed according to this. The transition from zarafa-server-arm to zarafa-server package will be handled seamlessly by pacman.


Zarafa packages for Arch Linux ARM / x86 / i686

Lately someone asked me for help with his Zarafa-Server on his RaspberryPi 2 (ARM). He tried to build an installation package with my MAKEPKG file from Archlinux User Repository. But shortly I realized that it’s a pain compiling with gcc 5 on his system.

So that nobody else has to go through this, I decided to create a package repository for Arch Linux ARM. There you’ll find the latest build of Zarafas installation packages for Odroid and Raspberry Pi 2 devices.

Since I’m using this packages on my own, I can tell it’s working by the day it’s created. Future versions will be released as soon I proved them working integrated with the other Zarafa related packages.

Zarafa Mailserver

It’s hard to explain how much work it is to setup your own private state of the art private mail service. The list of components to care of might be pretty scary. But from my own expirience I can tell, it’s possible!

That’s why I decided to write some tutorial about this and share my knowledge. My final objective is to show how you can setup and run a mailserver keeping your mails at home and letting a smarthost handle transfers and checks.
