That could be, I don't have Zope2.8 installed here...

Not necessarily.

What messages do you mean? The ones that you see when you run
/etc/init.d/zope start? I don't know about Ubuntu, but on Debian those
are only logged when the scripts are run during bootup. These are put
into /var/log/boot by the bootlogd. Errors that each instance produces
should be in the log files in $INSTANCE_HOME/log

Sure built Zope from Source and run mkzopeinstance with a full path.

Not specific to Ubuntu, but I guess specific to distribution-packages of
Zope. You'll find that many Zope-People rather built Zope themselves
than relying on distribution packages. There were (are?) some issues
with the distribution packages and with the packagers not doing their
job right, or trying to do "too much"...


Excellent time to become a missing person.
