Webmin successfully installed.


I downloaded webmin-1.680 and ran the setup script, I didnt have a clue what OS to choose from the list so I picked the first one ( 1) Pardus Linux ). I was expecting a heap of errors but it all seemed to install fine except for these lines

"Running postinstall scripts ..
Use of uninitialized value in split at /sources/webmin-1.680/acl/acl-lib.pl line 47.
Use of uninitialized value in -r at /sources/webmin-1.680/webalizer/webalizer-lib.pl line 16.
..done"

I turned off the firewall so I could access it and logged on fine.
Some things don't work but I was expecting that.
Anyone else have any experience with webmin?

It was one of the first apps I always used to install, I have used it on OSX and Linux and found it to be a very handy tool, never used all of its features though.

I haven't installed it on LFS but now you have reminded me I will.
I'm lazy can you post the download link

http://www.webmin.com/download.html

Let me know what you think the closest linux OS to use in the install.sh.
The first one is not far off.

UPDATE
I made a mistake of running install.sh by itself instead of ./setup.sh /usr/local/webmin
as per instructions at http://www.webmin.com/tgz.html
When I delete the source directory I got error as the scripts pointed to /sources/webmin-1.680.

Done that as well! It's easy to miss, thanks for the link.
