Default New install on Lenny

I'm setting up a new server and the debian package manager is giving me errors that packages are not configured. I get the following:

Errors were encountered while processing:
This is after running the first group installs.

apt-get install postfix postfix-mysql postfix-doc mysql-client mysql-server openssl getmail4 rkhunter binutils dovecot-imapd dovecot-pop3d sudo
If you look a little higher you'll see things like:


dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of postfix-mysql:
postfix-mysql depends on postfix (= 2.5.5-1.1); however:
Package postfix is not configured yet.
So I assumed all is ok since the ISPCOnfig installer is supposed to configure these packages.

After installing ISPConfigure dpkg still shows this errors as if these packages are not configured. I did the same install on a local VM and don't have these problems with the minimal install of debian.

Any clues on what I'm missing here?

I think I found the problem. When postfix asks for the domain name it asks for it with the syntax host.domain.com.

Note the trailing period. When I went to restart postfix it complained about the hostname. If I remove the trailing period from main.cf it works fine.

edit: Now I see why, my hostname actually had the trailing . from the hosting company.
