Installing from new Debian install - inetd error

    I've installed from a fresh install of Debian 3 different times tonight only to run into the same problem every time. The error is shown below.

    Setting up php4-common (4.3.10-18) ...
    Setting up libapache2-mod-php4 (4.3.10-18) ...
    Forcing reload of web server: Apache2.

    Errors were encountered while processing:
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    ERROR: Install command execution failed
    Errors just before:
    - Can't execute package installation command

    This happens even if I uninstall the openbsd-inetd package before install. This leaves me with 2 questions:

    First, why is this happening, and

    Second, what is the base build that Plesk developers are using for Debian builds?

    When I build a debian box, I don't install it as a Desktop, Server, or anything else. To me that's a base build. If we know what the developers are using to test their installer, it would be easier to troubleshoot install problems.

    As I know openbsd-inetd package should not be installed on the server otherwise Plesk installation fails. Actually, this information is included into release notes for Plesk: http://download1.swsoft.com/Plesk/Plesk8.1/Debian3.1/psa_8.1.0-debian3.1.build81061226.14_i386.html
    If you are going to install Plesk on Debian systems, make sure that the openbsd-inetd package is not installed on your system. Otherwise, the installation may fail.

    After that try to install 'xinetd' package:
    # apt-get install xinetd

    and then continue Plesk installation. Hope it helps.

    I had read the part about removing openbsd-inetd, but I didn't know about the xinetd install. Once I successfully removed that package and installed xinetd, it did in fact install cleanly. Thanks for the extra tip!
