New submission from Chris Hastie <chris at oak-wood.co.uk>:

Two issues (at least) prevent Kolab from building on Ubuntu 8.10 (64 bit).

openpkg will not compile with gcc 4.3. This can be worked around by installing
gcc-4.2 and executing 

ln -s /usr/bin/gcc-4.2 /usr/bin/gcc

openldap then fails to compile, exiting with:

getpeereid.c: In function 'getpeereid':
getpeereid.c:52: error: storage size of 'peercred' isn't known
make[2]: *** [getpeereid.o] Error 1

There is some info on this error here:


which suggests this issue comes with glibc-2.8. A patch is there, but may be
system specific.
