    Hi All
    I tried to install Backuppc server on my linux Machine. It is Ubuntu 6.06. I followed the procedure explained as in the howtoforge site.

    http://howtoforge.com/linux_backuppc

    The first error i am getting is



    root@nameserver:~# apt-get install backuppc rsync libfile-rsyncp-perl par2 smbfs
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    backuppc is already the newest version.
    rsync is already the newest version.
    libfile-rsyncp-perl is already the newest version.
    Package par2 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package par2 has no installation candidate


    I removed that package from the install list and the rest got installed sucessfully. I was told that you have web interface at http://nameserver.locallan.com/backuppc/ etc etc. with the username : backuppc and passwd : DMnMeKrK



    ......
    ......

    After that i get the error :


    Setting up backuppc (2.1.2-2ubuntu5) ...
    * Starting backuppc... 2008-01-04 13:17:41 $Conf{SendmailPath} = '/usr/sbin/sendmail' is not a valid executable program
    invoke-rc.d: initscript backuppc, action "start" failed.
    dpkg: error processing backuppc (--configure):
    subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    backuppc
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)


    And when i browse it through http://nameserver.locallan.com/backuppc/ it is giving the error:

    " Error: Unable to connect to BackupPC server "


    What may be the issue. Can anyone help...

    Looking forward to hear from you

    Thanks and Regards

    again.
