this tutorial was very interesting and helpful

i used to install otrs2 on ubuntu but not very stable and compatible.

 I need to add this: after installing otrs you need to install even SOAP::Lite via CPAN. this is to allow the installation of some packages not produced by Otrs like Opennms.

 Anyway...GREAT JOB ;)
