Webmin Installation Questions.


I'm a newbie and I've downloaded the rpm for webmin which was downloaded to my desktop. I them moved the rpm over to my download directory which is defined as a repository and I used Suse 11.0 Yast to do the install which went without any problems.

I haven't attempted to use Webmin yet as I read on the Webmin web site about something called PGP-Verification and downloading the PGP Key.

Also there is a PGP Signature. I displayed both and they are different.

How do I handle this situation as the instructions are talking about downloading these into a keyring etc.

Do I need to do this and if so can you help me with the instruction on how to do this.

Swamprat, almost all distros have webmin available in their repositories. I advise you remove the webmin you installed and reinstall it again from the Suse repository. I am not suggesting that there is anything wrong with the webmin you installed, however you cut down the risk of problems by using the official repositories where all packages are signed with all applicable keys.

If you still wish to proceed with your installed version you can find the required commands here: for importing keys.
