Webmin For Slack

Anyone know where I can get a Webmin.tgz file to Install In Slackware 10.2?
I download one but It ends In .tar.gz and I don't know how to convert It to .tgz

If the file you downloaded is really a Slackware package, then you should just be able to rename it to .tgz (use mv). There's a package for Webmin here also.

It is probably not a Slackware package then, which you downloaded.
Hint: just download the current webmin tarball at (currently that is

You need to unpack that archive and install Webmin onto your computer. This is an extremely simple procedure and the page tells you the exact commands to do that for the ".tar.gz" package.

Alien Bob, thats the package I had and I couldn't get It to Install, I tried to follow those Instructions but I must have been typing something wrong.

I just downloaded the package that Nylex suggested and It Installed with no problem.

Thanks for your replies

There is a webmin package on linuxpackages.
Once it is installed it can do its own update to the lates version.
