Default install fails - suse 10.2 (32-bit)

First off that you for the great site and awesome tutorials!

Here is what I have done.

1. Followed the The Perfect Setup - OpenSuSE 10.2 (32-bit) - http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_opensuse_10.2 install tutorial completely (with no problems)

2. I go to install ISPConfig and it fails right away

ISPConfig logs:
Sun Mar 11 23:25:43 PDT 2007 - [ISPConfig] - installation mode: expert

ISPConfig error during install:

########## MAIL SERVER ##########

Checking for MTA...
ls: cannot access mod/mail/: No such file or directory
ERROR: Your system configuration is not compatible with ISPConfig! The installation routine stops here!
suse-server:/tmp/install_ispconfig #

3. should I or do I need to change something within the postfix config(s)?

Here are some specs on the install:

It is within a vm (should not be in an issue)

suse-server:/tmp/install_ispconfig # df -h

I also checked the mail logs and I saw nothing out of the ordinary, if needed I can provided.

Thanks!

Have you run the installer as root user and not with sudo? Did you use the SuSE postfix package? Do you have enough space on your harddisk?

I reinstalled suse 10.2 32bit version and then i had no problems installing ispconfig. Knowing me I may have missed a step in the "perfect" setup due to lack of sleep. Its all good now (well for the moment that is)

ok, i reinstalled suse on a different box (not a vm) that i want to use for a production box. I double checked my install (well i used a network install over the net this time) for the perfect suse 10.2 32 bit install and the same error happened.

I noticed when I run SuSEconfig i do receive the following worning:

Executing /sbin/conf.d/SuSEconfig.postfix...
*** WARNING ***
Found /etc/postfix/master.cf.SuSEconfig, exiting...
*** WARNING ***

I moved both master.cf.SuSEconfig and main.cf.SuSEconfig to another directory and and the error still happens:


########## MAIL SERVER ##########

Checking for MTA...
ls: cannot access mod/mail/: No such file or directory
ERROR: Your system configuration is not compatible with ISPConfig! The installation routine stops here!

If I run SuSEconfig the following happens:

cp:/tmp/install_ispconfig # SuSEconfig

ATTENTION: You have modified /etc/postfix/main.cf. Leaving it untouched...

================================================== ========

I am running the installer for ISPConfig as root user.

How do know I am using the SuSE postfix package and if so how do I change this if I need to?

Thanks!

This is the normal behaviour on SuSE, nothing to worry about.

Run
Code:
yast
and search for the package postfix. It will tell you then if it is installed or not.

weird thing is postfix is installed. I can telnet to the local box and i can reload the config, stop and start the postfix service as well.

I have the same issue when I installed debian last night (when you install postfix in debian it removes exim automatically when using apt-get) and went to run the ispconfig install (debian is installed on that box now, i can reinstall suse tonight or tomorrow again and re test this).
