Hi Folks

I would just like to start a big THANK YOU to all the VSIDO team

right I haven't been on for a long time so I hope I am in the right place for this

I have just upgraded to 4.19.0-1 and while doing the general upgrade I got this error message

Code: [Select]

exaim4.config.
config error line 833 of /var/lib/exim4/config.autogenerated.tmp
option "hosts_try_dane
sub error /usr/bin/dpkg error (1)


it doesn't seem to have stopped anything working

cheers
Cheers :D

That's a mail delivery error (not your email, the system mail).

Did you use to have a host named "dane" on your network?

If you do a search of "config error line 833 of /var/lib/exim4/config.autogenerated.tmp" you'll get some answers that usually get around to reconfiguring - this command may work for you:

Code: [Select]
dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config
from this bug report

Search that error some more for something more current/definitive.

Appears to be harmless; some users couldn't recreate the error so it may be gone next time you reboot & upgrade.

Hi PackRat

Sorry its been so long in answering but I don't get on so much at the moment. however i ran the command that you suggested and got the following reply

Code: [Select]
bash: dpkg-reconfigure: command not found

so i guess that i have a bigger problem to try and sort out. I always do all updating of VSIDO using smxi so have no idea what's wrong
Cheers :D

dpkg-reconfigure should be part of the base install.

Do you have the man page for it?

Maybe your path is messed up; try:

Code: [Select]
whereis dpkg-reconfigure
to see where it's installed, and try using the full path.

Should be in /bin, /sbin, /usr/bin, or /usr/sbin
