first off .. i want to thank you for all your help..
second.. how would i browse repositorys and where might i find a list.. other than google which has been a pain to me lately.. (been finding everything but what i am looking for.. searchers error.. lol..)
strange question .. how would i take a .tar.gz file and make a .deb file. this kind of stuff gets me cerious..
anyway.. got lynx installed.. been a really good tool..
got webmin installed and somewhat configed.. lots of missing
programs the modules r set up for though.. but
figuring it out.. asks u if u want to install them but repos.. doesn't
have a lot of the ones i tried.. or have to search for them..
and just for the cerious.. the order that seems to work..
sudo passwd root
sudo apt-get install lynx (great tool)
sudo apt-get install perl-core (gotta have for webmin)
sudo dpkg -i webmin_1.290.deb
u can use lynx to config the server or on another pc..
0r for some reason http://(lan
address):10000 cause the host name never works for me .. (i think thats a windows box problem)
and i have to say webmin is pretty slick.. there was more to it than i though there was.. lol..
onto rebuild number 8 later today.. lol.. on the bright side .. i know what not to do..
i think i see how u found the addy for wget.. will try it tommorow to see what happens..
