Question Problems installing Zimbra on Debian 3.1

I followed "How To Install Zimbra Collaboration Suite (ZCS) On Ubuntu" here (thanx for providing this howto!).

Everything goes great until halfway step 3. After I answer 'yes' to 'The system will be modified. Continue?' I get this error :

Code:
Installing packages

    zimbra-core......zimbra-core_4.5.3_GA_733.DEBIAN3.1_i386.deb...FAILED
###ERROR###

zimbra-core_4.5.3_GA_733.DEBIAN3.1_i386.deb installation failed

Installation cancelled
I downloaded the most recent Debian package from the Zimbra Sourceforge page (not corrupted). The setup is a standard clean Debian Sarge install, with correct MX-record.

I don't know where to go from this error, I couln't find a solution on the Zimbra forums or here.

Did anyone succeed installing Zimbra on Debian Sarge? Any thoughts on how I can solve this?

What's the output of
Code:
uname -a
?
Did you try to install Zimbra as root?

What happens if you try to install zimbra-core_4.5.3_GA_733.DEBIAN3.1_i386.deb manually?
Code:
dpkg -i zimbra-core_4.5.3_GA_733.DEBIAN3.1_i386.deb

I just tried to install an earlier version of the zimbra debian install (zcs-4.5.2_GA_699.DEBIAN3.1.tgz) but this resulted in the same installation error :
Code:
zimbra-core......zimbra-core_4.5.2_GA_699.DEBIAN3.1_i386.deb...FAILED
###ERROR###

zimbra-core_4.5.2_GA_699.DEBIAN3.1_i386.deb installation failed
In reply to your uname -a question.. could zimbra not be compatible with the i686 architecture?

It is. I wanted to see if maybe you have a x86_64 system...

Can you delete the Zimbra directory:
Code:
rm -fr /opt/zimbra
and try the installation again from the beginning?

I deleted the Zimbra directory and tried both the ./install.sh and dpkg -i zimbra-core_4.5.3_GA_733.DEBIAN3.1_i386.deb.

The first still asks if I want to upgrade (both yes and no finally end up in the same error as before). Do I need to remove more files?

The second give me this error now:
Code:
h1199365:/usr/src/zcs/packages# dpkg -i zimbra-core_4.5.2_GA_699.DEBIAN3.1_i386.deb

Ok, no disk space problem then. But I see you don't have any swap.
What are the output of
Code:
top
and
Code:
cat /proc/meminfo
?

It's a Strato VDS.
Can the error while installing a .deb be due to insufficient free mem? BTW: isn't there a logfile with information on the error?
