    Ok I have been trying to setup systemimager on Ubuntu 8.04 for about a week using info off the internet. Needless to say Im pretty patient but cannot get it installed leave alone working .

    Is there any guide that works that would make this easier ? I have been through 12 server installs after experimenting with various different deb,tar,gz files. i have had dependencies missing and not installing properly , I have forced installs of deb files in an effort to give the stupid program its dependencies and ended up with trashed ubuntu server installs and had to start from scratch. :mad:

    Any chance of a Perfect systemimage server walkthough for people like me ? ( judging from the web there are plenty of us :O ) :eek:

    I'd even change to a different distro to get it working , however i do need to backup feisty fawn servers to it so ubuntu was the natural choice for the systemimager server ! :rolleyes:

    thanks

    You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    systemimager-server: Depends: libappconfig-perl but it is not going to be installed

    Depends: libxml-simple-perl but it is not going to be installed

    running apt-get -f install then gets me this :-

    So after a bit more jerking around we decided to do the entire setup just as you had done on debian.

    So we spent the afternoon downloading and installing debian on the server , this is far as we got using the systemimager walkthrough install :-

    I think I'll write new SystemImager tutorials. :)

    That would be very appreciated .

    Anything that prevents more fist marks in the front of the server rack and the broken distro cd's on the floor in the server room would be very welcome.

    :D
