Re: Install process hangs on MTA restart

Installation hangs after email configuration with message:

I can log into the second console.

This happened with each of these two isos.

	sid-amd64-netinst.iso          19-Feb-2005



Are you trying to finish installation or fix the installer?

Actually, I have used the 19 Feb sid netinst without the same problem. The exim has been updated recently and might be different. This could also be due to a misconfigured network or a modem crash. I doubt the netboot would work without a bootp and tftp server if at all.

To just get past the problem edit the /etc/init.d/exim4 and put "exit 0" near the first line. Maybe using the ps -ax and then kill exim from the second console would work. Then you could fix the exim config later.

Did you wait long enough? Those things usually timeout.

Somebody else might want the debug info.

Good Luck,
