fail2ban install issue


Hi all

I am trying to install fail2ban on my ubuntu 10.4 server running zimbra. I have tried a manual install and apt-get install and get the following errors if anyone can help

Setting up fail2ban (0.8.4-1ubuntu1) ...
update-rc.d: warning: fail2ban start runlevel arguments (2 3 4 5) do not match LSB Default-Start values (3 5)
update-rc.d: warning: fail2ban stop runlevel arguments (0 1 6) do not match LSB Default-Stop values (0 1 2 6)
.: 30: Can't open /etc/rc.status
invoke-rc.d: initscript fail2ban, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing fail2ban (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2
Processing triggers for python-central ...
Errors were encountered while processing:
fail2ban
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Thanks

Glenn

Looks like you picked a version not compatible with your system.
You should stick with the official repo's.

So you followed those links back to the ubuntu repo's?

You could file a bug against that package, although is Universe not supported by ubuntu? (even on LTS release?)

Maybe just edit the init-scripts yourself.
