apt-get install bind9 <-- error

    I'm following the ubuntu perfect server tutorial section 12 for DNS bind9.

    It fails with this error....

    The packages it says I need appear to be already installed and up to date. What am I missing?

    Everything else in the tutorial worked perfectly. When I couldn't get the bind to install, I skipped it and continued with the tutorial, but then of course the ispconfig failed to install because bind wasn't installed. I'm just trying to set this up to install the ispconfig and play with it on my local network. (give my kids something to play with on the local lan, verses on the internet) And also get them hooked on linux. :) Am I an evil dad or what?

    Many thanks!

    Please run
    Code:
    apt-get update
    and try again.
    If it still doesn't work, post your /etc/apt/sources.list here.

    I must say, paying the subscription price sure makes this forum look GREAT! :) I expect to spend some time here so paying for a 6 month membership is completely worth it. (even with a deflated USD!)

    I'm not sure if this is the problem, but can you try to comment out all the gutsy-updates repos, run
    Code:
    apt-get update
    and try again?

    Did you have third-party repos in your sources.list and install packages from these repos, or did you always use the original sources.list?

    Let me think here...

    I installed it from cd for the desktop originally. I installed some games and such, few graphic programs... then I started doing a search for getting apache installed and came across the perfect ubuntu server. That is when I just copied the exact sources.list that was on the instructions. I just went down the line and copied everything on that page.

    Tell you what... I will reinstall from scratch and start over. I'll let you know how it turns out. I'm baffled. If it does it again....

    My question is... why in the world do I need to install "bind"? I use an external dns server, dnsmadeeasy.com, why does ispconfig require bind? I've got other cpanel servers and bind doesn't need to run on those because I use an external dns. I guess it's just part of it's programming. sigh.

    one thing odd... usb keyboards don't appear to work when you try to do an install from disk? My ubuntu disk gives me the option to install the desktop, oem, server, etc... but because my usb keyboard doesn't work "until" after the install process starts I can't actually "choose" the server only install. It defaults to desktop version. Everything I did with the perfect ubuntu tutorial worked just fine, got apache, got php, got mysql, got ssh, got ftp, postfix, everything... just couldn't get bind9 to install because of some weird dependancy that it said I needed but already have.

    falko,

    I installed it on a laptop and all is working now. Im not going to try and figure out what the deal was with the other computer. Im going to reinstall the desktop version of ubuntu and throw the hands up. This laptop works great with the instructions given under the perfect ubuntu server and ispconfig. ItÅ› all working! Thanks a LOT for giving such nice cut and paste instructions!

    BIND must be installed, but you can switch it off if you don't need it. The installer just checks if BIND is existing on the system.

    Falco,

    http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_server_ubuntu7.10_p5

    Under this section...

    15 Courier-IMAP/Courier-POP3

    If you do not want to use ISPConfig, configure Postfix to deliver emails to a user's Maildir*:

    -------------------

    I'm installing ispconfig and I did "this" below....

    postconf -e 'home_mailbox = Maildir/'
    postconf -e 'mailbox_command ='
    /etc/init.d/postfix restart

    *Please note: You do not have to do this if you intend to use ISPConfig on your system as ISPConfig does the necessary configuration using procmail recipes. But please go sure to enable Maildir under Management -> Server -> Settings -> EMail in the ISPConfig web interface.

    -----------------------------

    I wasn't supposed to do that and didn't understand that till I got to the sentance "under" what I was told to do... It seems all email is delivered to "root" now and I think this is the reason why.

    Example, it says...

    root@office:~# sendmail -v test@mydomain.com
    this is a test
    .
    Mail Delivery Status Report will be mailed to <root>.


    How can I make it be what it's supposed to be under ispconfig?

    (how can I ungoof it?)

    Thanks,

    James

    Did you create the email address test@mydomain.com in ISPConfig? Is it listed in /etc/postfix/virtusertable? Is mydomain.com listed in /etc/postfix/local-host-names?

    What's in your /etc/postfix/main.cf, and what's the output of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    ?
    Any errors in your mail log?

    falco,

    I think it's ok. I know what the 'real' problem is now. Many isps here in the US, ie ATT&T dsl, blocks port 25. This little "play server" is sitting on my lan. It cannot send email "outside" or recieve email from "outside" the lan. I created an email account test@mydomain.com and can check for email via 192.168.1.201. I can send and recieve email no problem as long as I don't go outside of the lan. That's just because the isp is blocking port 25. It is still strange that I cannot do a local "sendmail -v test@domain.com".
