When I try change mysql database parameters in event manager to mysql database maintained in my distribution (ubuntu-server 10.04 LTS), zenoss always write permission denied. I found, that this error is writen only for unix user zenoss, but DB user can be used by mysql client without problem. I think, zenoss user use mysql.socket distributed with zenoss db.
Is possible to change this confiruration to maintained distribution mysql server?
It sounds like you used the stack installer. At least on RHEL derivatives, you can use the rpm install and use whatever MySQL you want. I don't know if this is possible on Ubuntu - is there a deb provided rather than the stack installer?
I found only one source for debian based installation http://dev.zenoss.org/deb/dists/main/stable/binary-i386/ but this is only stack installation. I found only old works for packaging zenoss for debian from year 2007 http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=361253#42 but this is for 2.X version. Have someone newer sources?
The Stack installer doesn't lend itself to being "separated". If you *really* need this, I guess you could install from Source. I'd just use the integrated system though, and maybe submit a ticket that there should be the same .deb sort of option there is for RPM based distros.
