HowTo Install Redmine on openSUSE

Installation

The installation process can be done as described [[http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/RedmineInstall here]]

Startscript for openSUSE 12.2 (and later)

Please note that for more recent installations you have to tell the server that it should listen not only to localhost,
but to - usually - all hosts that want to talk to redmine. To achieve this, the script /etc/init.d/redmine as depicted below
should be changed as follows:

add the line "RAILSACCESS" below line 34
ENVIRONMENT=production
RAILSACCESS="0.0.0.0"

and change line 73
startproc -t 2 -u $REDMINE_USER -g $REDMINE_GROUP /usr/bin/ruby $REDMI-NE_BIN server webrick -e $ENVIRONMENT >$RCFILE 2>&1

into
startproc -t 2 -u $REDMINE_USER -g $REDMINE_GROUP /usr/bin/ruby $REDMI-NE_BIN server webrick -b $RAILSACCESS -e $ENVIRONMENT >$RCFILE 2>&1

this script even works on opensuse leap 4.1 though it does not comply to systemd - format. Nevertheless,
insserv /etc/init.d/redmine will work as expected.
