problem found while trying to install shorewall
I am attempting to install the dcc clustering tools but can not get past
step one, install shorewall.
apt-get install shorewall
A dialog comes up telling me to indicate the external NIC. No problem
accept the default eth0. Then however, debconf gives me a new dialog that
it could not determine the proper value of EXTERNAL_IP from the output of
getent as not database exists and that I should fix the problem.
I assume the setup for shorewall is looking for a previously setup firewall
definition but I am stumped on what it wants.
The really irritating thing is that there is no option to cleanly say oops
and quit. I had to kill the install process, not good.
Sorry for the cross post I would post this to the debian beowulf or cluster
group but beowulf is nothing but spam postings and I found no cluster
group. If there is an active group dedicated to clustering, please let me
