New Debian Install

    Giving up on Suse because there are to many updates and mods to keep up... I have a new install of Debian Sarge and noted the following during install.

    1. Per the Perfect Setup I tried booting the iso to linux26 and it would not except it so I setup to the iso kernel of linux24. Do I need to change this? and will the link at the end of the Perfect Setup about custom kernels help a novice??

    2. When I edited fstab per the Perfect Setup and closed it I got the following echo in console. It also seems to echo the same whenever I do anything with servers from the console.
    Code:
    server:/home/admin# vi /etc/fstab
    Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
    Xlib: No protocol specified
    
    Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
    Xlib: No protocol specified
    
    Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
    Xlib: No protocol specified
    3. When I ran perl -MCPAN -e shell and then install HTML::parser something happened but I am not sure what... It took much longer than usual and seemed to ask for questions and then the end result was
    Code:
    2 tests and 17 subtests skipped.
    Failed 21/24 test scripts. 745/811 subtests failed.
    Files=24, Tests=811,  3 wallclock secs ( 1.69 cusr +  0.12 csys =  1.81 CPU)
    Failed 21/24 test programs. 745/811 subtests failed.
    make: *** [test_dynamic] Error 1
      /usr/bin/make test -- NOT OK
      Running make install
        make test had returned bad status, won't install without force
    
    I have no clue how to even begin fixing this!

    Lastly, http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2760 will this also apply to moving an ISPConfig setup from a Suse setup to a Debian setup?

    No, not if you don't have a problem with running an old kernel.
    This is totally optional.

    Did you edit the file as root?
    Maybe it's a good idea to connect to the server with SSH (e.g. with PuTTY) and try again.

    You can install the required packages like this:
    Code:
    apt-get install libhtml-parser-perl libdb-file-lock-perl libnet-dns-perl
    If you want to move to a new server, take a look here: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2717&highlight=moving ispconfig

    But please note that it's difficult to move from one distribution to the other. You might encounter lots of problems. Moving will work without problems only if you move to the same version of the same distribution.

    I will have to do a little studying on kernels before I can judge what I need and don't need!

    Yes.. I did/do install as root. PuTTY, I thought this is basically a window emulator for remote desktop? I have always installed directly. The one thing I noticed is that on all the fstab formats I have seen the [dump] and [fsckorder] for "/" has always been "1 1" and for "/home" 1 2". On my Debian fstab "/" is "0 1" and "/home" is "0 0".

    Since I am still at the setup stage a new install cured the perl issue... and I will do a new install and setup of ISPConfig. Since it is a small home server with only 3 sites that won't be a problem.

    Thanks!

    PuTTY is no emulator and has nothing to do with remote desktop. It's simply an SSH client.

    so much to learn....

    I still got
    Code:
    server:/home/admin# vi /etc/fstab
    Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
    Xlib: No protocol specified
    
    Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
    Xlib: No protocol specified
    
    Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
    Xlib: No protocol specified
    during reinstall but everything seems to be working ok so far. Got one problem but I think it si an ISPConfig question so I am off to there.
