please can someone tell me where I am going wrong. I have downloaded all
the files from 

I copy the files to /kolabtemp, I then mkdir /usr/local/kolab.
I then ln -s /usr/local/kolab /kolab

this creates the soft link

I then run :

sh obmtool kolab and this is what i get:

    ./obmtool kolab 
    ---- boot/build TestServ %kolab ---- 
    obmtool:NOTICE: did not find openpkg/rpm executable.
Checking/fetching binary sh. 
    obmtool:NOTICE: did not find binary sh. Checking/fetching source

    obmtool:ERROR: bootstrapping failed 

Now I am Logged in as root
/ has 31Gb available space 
    it creates /kolab 
    with the following sub directories: 

    it also copies the following files into 

        PKG : 


        and TMP 


        and that is as far as it gets.

I have tried several different distributions:

   Fedora Core 2,  Fedora Core 3
   RHEL3 and Rhel 4.
   The only one i have got it to compile on is Mandrake 10.1

Any ideas where to look?? 

Are there possible special packages that must be in the installation?
the test box is a Penrium celeron 2Ghz, with 512 Mb Ram and a 40 Gb Hard
