    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:

    ISPConfig error during install:

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

    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)

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

    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

    Finished.

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

    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).

    What's the output of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    ?
