Package: kolab-webadmin
Version: 2.2.1-20090331-2
Severity: normal

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---

while trying to install kolab-webadmin in a testing system, I stumbled upon a
post-install configuration error:

Setting up kolab-webadmin (2.2.1-20090331-2) ...
chmod: cannot access `/etc/kolab-webadmin/session_vars.php': No such file or
dpkg: error processing kolab-webadmin (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:

The kolab-webadmin.postinst file contains the old
path /etc/kolab-webadmin/session_vars.php in the "fixperms" function.
This path should depend on the previous version of the kolab-webadmin package -
similar to the last four lines of the postinst script.

After fixing this path in /var/lib/dpkg/info/kolab-webadmin.postinst, the
package was configured without further problems.

thanks for your time,
