HI Guys,

I have installed kolab 3.2 on Debian 7.4 64 bit (several times) and it 
consistently has the following error.

1. During installation, you get
ERROR 1005 (HY000) at line 9: Can't create table 
'roundcube.kolab_alarms' (errno: 150)
ERROR 1146 (42S02) at line 179: Table 'roundcube.system' doesn't exist

I followed this link and it seemed fixed this.
As a workaround I have this sql table template: 
http://mihai.badici.ro/linux/machinet/debian/kolab.sql I created again 
the table ( mysql -u roundcube -p roundcube <kolab.sql ) and roundcube 
start to works.

2. It seems that kolab-server will not start upon installation, so I 
have to do this,
root at mx2:~# cat /etc/rc.local
service kolab-server start
exit 0

3. Address book , contacts can not be created and saved and imported. If 
I try one of these actions, it seemed have info created, but it doesn't 
show up afterwards, even though it says successfull for all these 

Kindly please point out how to fix this.

I know people get this workign on Debian 7. How? Do they have same 

Thanks in advance.
