Cant install Webmin 1.550 on Debian squeeze, installation hangs


Hi

I am trying to install webmin on my Debian virtual machine and it is not working.
Here is what i am following http://www.webmin.com/deb.html

I ad the 2 lines to /etc/apt/sources.list
I ad the key ok
But when i do apt-get install webmin it goes through everything ok as far as i can see, except when it gets to " **initializing cache. This may take a while **
Setting up webmin (1.550) ... "
It is like it just stops doing anything, it just hangs there.

If i reboot and try "dpkg --configure -a" it starts at the same place "Setting up webmin" but nothing is happening.

Plz does anyone have any idea what could be the issue?

Thx
David

Why would you want to install it? There is a reason it is NOT in the Debian repos.


# Webmin http://www.webmin.com/deb.html
# See http://bugs.debian.org/343897 about the removal from Debian
# Secure APT - wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc | apt-key add jcameron-key.asc
# deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib
# deb http://webmin.mirror.somersettechsol....uk/repository sarge contrib

Notice 'sarge' which was Debian stable from 2005 til 2007 when Etch was released.

There are many other panels several of which are in the normal Debian repos.
