  • Nag is the Horde task list application. It stores todo items, things due later this week, etc.
  • It is very similar in functionality to the Palm ToDo application.


1. Log in (with username root) to the SMEserver console.

2. Download and install nag and smeserver-nag with:

yum --enablerepo=smecontribs install smeserver-nag

3. Do following commands for the changes to take effect:

signal-event post-upgrade; signal-event reboot

alternatively to avoid reboot you could do :

expand-template /etc/e-smith/sql/init/80mysql.create.nag 
expand-template /etc/e-smith/sql/init/81nag_upgrade
service mysql.init restart
signal-event email-update
config set Unsaved Changes no

After SME server reboots then

4. Enable webmail access in server-manager (if not already done)

5. Open https://yourserver/webmail

6. Log in and check out "Tasks"-item.

Check installed version

yum info installed *nag*

This will show details on packages nag-h3 and smeserver-nag plus e-smith-manager (because of the "nag" in the word manager). The first 2 are the working rpms for this contrib.


yum remove nag-h3

This will remove nag-3 and smeserver-nag but not e-smith-manager.
