I have a long standing problem getting Mailscanner to install
on my Dell Dimension
XPS T450 running Debian GNU/Linux 3.0, kernel 2.4.18-bf2.4.
An old Mailscaner
version was uninstalled(with difficulty) because it wouldn't
update and now it wont
install. Request for help with the Debian user list, Google
searches, searching your list
and reading manuals yielded no success. I hope that someone
on the Mailscanner list
can help me correct this problem. I'm a newbie to Linux and
about networks. I have a single PC connecting to Internet
using a 56K dialup modem.
The terminal output from the install command is below:
ChatagnierL-Home:/tmp# dpkg -i mailscanner_4.38.10-1_all.deb
(Reading database ... 140708 files and directories currently
Unpacking mailscanner (from mailscanner_4.38.10-1_all.deb)
/var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/preinst: line 22: db_get: command not
dpkg: error processing mailscanner_4.38.10-1_all.deb
subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit
Errors were encountered while processing:
Note: the /tmp.ci/preinst part of the file path doesn't exist
so I couldn't
investigate it. Mailscanner has never been functional
although I setup
Exim, spamassassin and f-prot as I thought it should be based
Thanks for any help you might provide,
Sorry, my Perl version is v5.8.4 built for i386-linux-thread-multi.
