Hi Andrea,
it is very cool that the Kolab Server is working for you now.
Also thanks for the long report!

It will be helpful for all that try a similiar installation.

Can you elaborate what you mean by this?

note the following post and some research made me stop using wget at all 
There are alternatives like "puf".

Wow, not the fastest machines. ;)
If you like you could provide the RPMs you have gotten out of this somewhere.

Both is something you should ask again on the openpkg lists.

Yes, if clamav does not have use it, then you do not need it.

I except this to be gone in 2.1.x server versions.

I think the problem is that the default is dbm, but this is not supported
on your platform. I wonder why it did choose dbm as default then.
Hmm you are saying that if we use hash:/ something in the main.cf
then the default should be "hash", too and this is harmless?

No idea where this could come from.
