I am working on upgrading a couple of old mail servers from SOGo 4 to SOGo 5 following https://docs.iredmail.org/upgrade.sogo.4.to.5.html. In the upgrade instructions I see the following:

"SOGo relies on the GNUstep packages provided by SOGo team, and must not use the packages from EPEL repo. Please open file /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo, make sure you have line like below:
exclude=gnustep*"

I am wondering what using EPEL will actually break. I have a couple of other iRedMail servers running 1.3.2 with the epel version of gnustep installed and SOGo seems to be working as advertised.

In looking at the old 0.9.9 servers EPEL gnustep is already installed and is a higher version that what is provided by the SOGo repo.

Do I really need to downgrade gnustep?

Regards,

Tom

This is mentioned in SOGo installation guide:
https://www.sogo.nu/files/docs/SOGoInst … Guide.html

SOGo relies on the GNUstep packages provided by Inverse and must not use the packages from EPEL. Adjust the repository definition to exclude those packages:

I'm afraid that it's better asking in SOGo mailing list to get a more accurate answer. smile
