Hello to everyone!

i try to debianice my linkstation using the debil script from marge. I followd PITS/00003 and PITS/00004. Everthing worked fine (except opening my box and seting the network address to static --> PITS/00009) and i hoped to get a full working Debian. But something is wrong. For I am a linux/debian newbie i desperatly seek for your help.

The first thing i encountered was a not working webmin. So i checked the webmin log:

# vi var/log/webmin/miniserv.error

[21/Aug/2005:02:38:48 +0200] miniserv.pl started
[21/Aug/2005:02:38:48 +0200] PAM authentication enabled
Can't locate auto/POSIX/getpid.al in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/l
ib/perl/5.8.7 /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.7 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/l
ib/perl/5.8 /usr/share/perl/5.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /usr/share/webmin
/miniserv.pl line 442

I started looking for getpid.al and found it at:

./usr/lib/perl/5.8.7/auto/POSIX/getpid.al

I decided, that instead of messing up any scripts i simply reinstall webmin:

# apt-get install webmin
...
E: Cannot get debconf version. Is debconf installed?
dpkg: configuration error: unknown option log: Success
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)

Ok ... debconf - why not reinstalling it too to get things working again:

# apt-get install debconf
...
E: Cannot get debconf version. Is debconf installed?
dpkg: configuration error: unknown option log: Success
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)

Actually i can't install anything (tried VNC-Server and got the same error)

Now I ran out of Ideas. It seems to me that something elementary in my debian system is wrong.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for helping ...

Gordon

P.S.: I even switched back to the linkstation environment, deleted debian and ran the debil script. Same result :-(

Which Debian build did you install, Sarge? If so, it looks like you have a version-mismatch.

Yes sarge - I used the default dist in the debil script.

How can I find out if I have a version-mismatch? And if i have, how did it happen and what can i do against it?

Rerun the debil installation script and configure apt as usual but do not install packages during the base-config process. Once the base-config process is over, manually edit /etc/apt/sources.list and replace "testing" with "stable."
