    Webmin is back!
    Submitted by ressu on Sunday, April 01, 2001 – 12:54
    Yesterdays dinstall brought many Debian users a happy surprise, webmin is back.
    Webmin was removed from archives a while back due to maintainer conflicts. Now it’s back, and appears to have quite a few features. It allows adding and removing particular modules. Hopefully this version sticks. =)

    It was a problem in the perl dependencies due to me using a backported debhelper from sid. I’ve uploaded a fixed set of packages so try them now
    and let me know if there are still problems.

    I’ve been running Progeny Debian and it’s currently using a custom debconf (0.3.83progeny1) which will not resolve dependencies with the potato webmin package which requires debconf. I assuming for now that the progeny version of debconf was just a stop gap measure at the time and probably isn’t going to be updated until Progeny 1.0 get’s released.

    Is it possible to force webmin into progeny and have it work?

    You may have to get Webmin as source from Webmin.com

    I did this a few months ago and it works fine with Debian potato

    The dependencies problems seem corrected… There is just a problem: I tried to install apache-ssl, webmin-ssl and webmin-apache but there was a problem when installing webmin-core (file conflict in /etc/webmin with webmin-ssl).

    It looks really good!

    I’m probably asking the converted here, but what about webmin makes it any better than any other system administration tool. There is cfengine, linux-conf, and god knows what else.

    Does anyone have any good pointers to overviews and comparisons of various system admin tools?

    I wouldn’t say that Webmin is better than other config tools. It targets a completely different type of user.

    As I understand, cfengine is intended for initial configs and installs across a lot of similar machines. Linuxconf is a text(ncurses)-based config tool that is designed to work with core linux components. I have used linuxconf and I think it is a very powerful tool.

    Webmin is a browser-based config tool, and it’s popularity is partly due to to its exntesible nature. There are many plugins available for Webmin, everything from UPS control to Samba filesharing configuration. The setup and install of Webmin is fast (even from tarball) and the author (Jamie Cameron) is a regular on the support mailing list.

    I am biased, I like Webmin a lot.

    This time it will stick alright 🙂
    To use it you will need to install the following packages:

    1. Either webmin or webmin-ssl (webmin-ssl is preferred, it will give you greater security.)
    2. webmin-core. (Some basic services)
    3. one or more packages to admin various services i.e webmin-apache for apache, webmin-postfix for postfix etc.

    For potato users, I’ve made packages available at the following apt source:

    deb http://www.braincells.com/pub/debian/Local potato/
    deb-src http://www.braincells.com/pub/debian/Local potato/

    I apologize for the long wait in getting this package ready, I could have released a half-assed version long time ago, but I felt that Debian users deserved only the best.

    I tried to istall your potato packages, but I keep getting unresolved dependancies on packages I already have installed. Let me explain. When I try to install webmin-ssl, it says it needs debconf, and libnet-ssleay-perl, which are both installed. And if I try to install webmin, it says it needs debconf, which is yet again, installed. What’s the deal?

    I have just tried to install the packages and found that webmin depends on perl-5.004. The dependancies need to remove quite a lot of packages… and debconf is one of these removed packages.

    A solution could be to use perl-5.005.

    Didn’t webmin have some licence issues? Is it in non-free? Or am I thinking of something else?

    You’re thinking of something else. Webmin is under the BSD license.
