Page to track the work done @ FreeCode to build iFolder in a sane way under Ubuntu. Later, packaging iFolder for debian/ubuntu should be trivial.

Questions? Contact Rubén Romero or Egil Möller

General info about Mono/.NET

.NET libraries are DRMish signed. To create a keypair or sign a library you're supposed to use the sn.exe utility, that crashes. Libraries can also be signed after compilation using http://www.eggheadcafe.com/community/aspnet/2/10011514/strong-name.aspx but you still need a keypair (somefile.snk) to do that. Go to a windows machien and get it done Sad :(

iFolder 3.7

To build 3.7 by hand

Note: Ruibon has packaged the 3.7 server the cludgy way, with all deps as binary blobs in the source! Ick!

There is a page about compiling iFolder on Ubuntu, which describes a very much simplified process that doesn't really work. However, it's a good starting point: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/iFolderEnterpriseServer

Building the server

Extra build-deps:

apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake libtool
apt-get install libmono-system-data2.0-cil libmono-security2.0-cil libmono-system-web2.0-cil libmono-system-runtime2.0-cil gsoap liblog4net1.2-cil libmono-ldap2.0-cil libflaim-dev uuid-dev libxml2-dev libmono-winforms2.0-cil

Run deps:

apt-get install libapache2-mod-mono mono-apache-server2

About different compiler versions for mono. Environment.OSVersion.Platform values fix according to http://lists.ximian.com/pipermail/mono-list/2005-May/026892.html

Note: IFolder 3.7 only works with HTTPS. Warning: The error message shown in the client if you don't use SSL is very cryptic.

Building dependencies

Not really needed, as all seems to be packaged already, but this one wasn't in my old Ubuntu, so I compiled it by hand:

Building CsharpLDAP by hand

Building: The URL is snarfed from http://forge.novell.com/modules/xfcontent/file.php/ldapcsharp/ldapcsharp/CsharpLDAP-v2.1.10/CsharpLDAP-v2.1.10.zip

wget http://forge.novell.com/modules/xfcontent/private.php/ldapcsharp/ldapcsharp/CsharpLDAP-v2.1.10/CsharpLDAP-v2.1.10.zip
unzip CsharpLDAP-v2.1.10.zip
cd CsharpLDAP
mv Novell.Directory.LDAP Novell.Directory.Ldap
recode text/crlf..text build.sh 
recode text/crlf..text Novell.Directory.Ldap/Novell.Directory.Ldap.Utilclass/ResultCodeMessages.txt

sed -i -e "s+^mcs+gmcs2+g" -e "s+which mcs+which gmcs2+g" -e "s+resgen+resgen2+g" build.sh
chmod ugo+x ./build.sh

Copy your .snk keypair file into lib/Novell.Directory.Ldap.snk. If you have no other, you can use ifolder.snk. Then continue building



sudo cp lib/Novell.Directory.Ldap.dll /usr/lib/mono/2.0/
sudo gacutil /i lib/Novell.Directory.Ldap.dll

iFolder 3.6

Rui Boon made a package for this. Awesome work man!

To install Ruibons 3.6 version

This package and PPA repository works for Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Hardy Heron under x86. No 64 bit support!

  • sources.list:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ruiboon/ubuntu hardy main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ruiboon/ubuntu hardy main


apt-get install mono-apache-server libapache2-mod-mono simias ifolder3 libsimias0 libsimias-dev
mkdir /var/www/.config/.mono/keypairs/
chown www-data:www-data /var/www/.config/.mono/keypairs/
chown www-data:www-data /home/srv/simias -R

To set up webaccess and admin web:

cd /etc/apache2/conf.d
cat simias.conf
rm simias.conf
cp /etc/simias/apache/default/* .
emacs simias* ifolder*

NOTE: Don't set cn=admin as SIMIAS admin!!! Simias admin and SimiasProxy should be new (previously unexistend) users.


apt-get install ifolder3 mono-xsp

You also need to install the build deps as Ruibon has forgotten some deps somewhere along the path...

apt-get build-dep simias ifolder3
