Can't start it manually.
ERROR: /etc/smokeping/config, line 16: File '/etc/smokeping/smokemail' does not exist

A bug has already been filed on launchpad:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/smokeping/+bug/993129

Has anyone else run into this or found a workaround yet?

edit: yes, I have Googled extensively for this. I also tried downloading the source package, and there is no smokemail binary in it. So I have no idea where this is even coming from.

Also I am using 12.04, not 6.06.. I don't have enough posts (50!!!) to edit my own details.
