Thanks, that absolutely did the trick!
All RPMs did build cleanly (with slight massage on gmp and clamav as
documented in the wiki). Now upgrading to 2.1 should finally work. :-)
Any idea why this permission problem occured? I am sure this issue does not

said before it did not occur with kolab 2.0.3.
