Bug#569193: tasksel hangs during mail server installation
I have not used an image for installation. I did a debootstrap on a dedicated partition, installed a kernel and then rebooted.
Now I created a chroot environment in Lenny and reproduced the issue.
Instead, if I try:
# aptitude install uw-ipmapd
Setting up uw-imapd (8:2007 and ~ dfsg-3.1) ...
WARNING: Port "imap3" unselected in debconf but possibly handled locally.
Creating generic self-signed certificate: /etc/ssl/certs/imapd.pem
(replace with hand-crafted or authorized one if needed)
and the process stops indefinitely.
I get the same result with an installation on VirtualBox.
However I think the problem is not in the package tasksel, but in uw-imapd. So I was wrong to report here.
Let me give you my apologies.
